Eliminating standing water in your yard is important. Standing water inhibits the use of your yard and creates the perfect environment for mold, mosquitoes, and other pests.
Mold and structural foundation damage are also problems that may occur in homes with improper drainage. A negative pitch of the grade provides a direct path for water towards a home while adding harmful hydrostatic pressure and voiding home foundation warranties. During the winter months, water near a foundation wall will freeze and expand, therefore providing additional damaging pressure.
Homeowners do not need to accept these circumstances. We recommend viewing our Drainage Solutions page as the next step to correcting your drainage problem.
