Keep your foundation protected with these tips from the Texas A&M AgriLife Water Education Network.
If you find a foundation crack, fill it with caulk or waterproofing sealant to avoid water accumulation under your home.
Check your sprinklers regularly for leaks, broken heads, and other maintenance to avoid costly water damage and potential flooding.
Avoid overplanting around the foundation. You need to be able to see the foundation all around the house. Large plantings that touch the walls encourage wood rot and wood destroying insects to relocate into the walls.
