Tips for protecting your home: , Gutters must be cleaned. Make sure your landscaper is doing that during every visit (minimum twice per month), especially during the rainy season. Water mitigation starts with landscaping. Take care when changing the landscaping of a property – especially if you want to change slopes/grades. Don’t plant trees too close to your home. If they are already planted, make sure the limbs are cut back to decrease the probability of debris falling onto the roof.
Install “alcantarillas” (concrete tubes typically used under roads and driveways) to help the water keep moving.
Study where your downspouts/rain chains end. Do they go onto the ground? Ideally, a concrete catch box will be connected to buried plastic pipes guiding the water into a more extensive water system.
Plant appropriate plants and trees in the proper locations.
Keep all drainage clean of debris. Have your landscaper/property manager check them.
