RAIN Home Visit

A practical approach to managing rain where it falls and protecting basements

RAIN Home Visit is a professional advice service provided by certified RAIN Guides, who have advanced technical knowledge but come across as friendly, encouraging peers that engage homeowners understanding rainwater issues on their property and finding best solutions to address trouble spots.

Since 2012, over 600 RAIN home visits have been conducted in Canada.

The visit aims to help homeowners:

  • Keep basements dry
  • Minimize flood damage
  • Soak up rain on site
  • Prevent incidence of sewer backup

“The RAIN Home Visit clearly explained what I could do to keep the water away from my foundation and keep my basement dry.”
