- This is essentially the starting point for any proper drainage system. This is because your gutters direct all rainwater away from the home’s foundation. Your gutters should be kept in good condition, and you should ensure they are free from debris (this will help prevent clogs and fires). At their downspout points, the water should be flowing away from your home. Your solution may be as simple as extending or rerouting your downspouts.
- French Drains
- When a French Drain is installed properly it will collect water and expel it away from your home. You can have them installed at specific wet spots in the yard, or beneath the foundation as part of a waterproofing system for the basement. When installed inside they reroute water to the sump pump. While external French Drains direct water from your home. They are beneath the ground, and to prevent clogging they are installed at a slight slope.
- Yard Grading Services
- How your yard slopes will have a serious impact on your drainage solutions. The slope is an essential part of ensuring exterior water doesn’t flow and pool around the foundation of your home. Foundation pooling could result in water seeping in beneath the cove joint, spilling over the top, and creating serious repair issues with your foundation and the structural integrity of your home. We can help you in achieving the perfect slope in your yard to prevent any drainage problems.
Sadly, there are many homes with drainage problems destroying their landscaping, and ultimately damaging structural integrity and creating serious safety hazards. Some of the common issues that we deal with include:
- Foundation damage
- Standing water
- Wet basements
- Slippery surfaces
