Keep Your Basement Dry

Your basement. The foundation of your home. The storer of your things. Your extra square footage of living space. And, ultimately, the big giant hole underground that you want most desperately to stay dry when it rains. Funny thing is, the dryness of your basement could depend on your neighbors. We’re all connected by sewer pipes. If you own a home, you own a sewer pipe. And, most of us don’t maintain that pipe until there’s a problem. So, you have a lot more in common with your neighbors than you thought you did after that last block party.
