Drainage Problems in Milwaukee WI
There is a wide variety of exterior drainage problems that affect 60% of all homeowners. The severity of these problems can significantly vary as well. Drainage problems may be seasonal or develop over time. Typically, homeowners can go for years before they even realize they have a persistent problem. These drainage issues will continue to get worse as water settles property features such as lawn areas, patios, driveways and foundations often causing a preventable damage and expense.
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.

Considering surface runoff is the most common drainage problem, adjusting the grade is typically the primary recommended drainage solution.
Ensuring a positive pitch away from the home is very important. To control this or pooling lawn areas, the creation of an efficient swale may be required. By directing the water off the property, we can prevent pooling (breeding ground for mosquitoes) and help make your yard more enjoyable.
An efficient use of a drain tile system or a catch basin (yard drain) are an excellent approach to supplement the benefits of proper grading. A 4″ perforated drain tile backfilled with limestone chips will absorb seepage (underground water) under the center of a swale or other appropriate areas. Considering these pipes may freeze in a typical Wisconsin winter, they should be used as a secondary drainage solution.
