Yard Drainage Solutions Fairfield County
If you’re experiencing pooled water and muddy puddles on your property, or water backing up near your home or other building, you likely have a drainage problem. Such standing water can easily damage your foundation, compromising structural integrity, making for dangerous conditions and costly repairs. As there is virtually no air circulating under your home, any evaporation will be slow. This can lead to warped floors, wood rot, mildew, mold, and higher humidity in your home. A drainage problem can also contribute to poor lawn and shrub health, and should be addressed ASAP.
Standing water is often the result of poor grading. Proper grading facilitates the movement of water away from your foundation. Standing water near your foundation can also be the result of "gutter problems." Gutters that overflow because of clogged downpipes or incorrect installation, (sloped away from your downspouts) require immediate attention. Gutter baskets or strainers must also be cleaned periodically. Downspout extensions may also be in order to move water away from your foundation.
If your “water problem” is something new, you might look to your neighbors for recent landscaping, which may be directing water (runoff) onto your property. Your soil may also be “supersaturated” due to a high water table or an underground spring.
Identifying causes of poor drainage can be a challenge. A. KRETA AND SON can carefully analyze your yard's slope and soil type to determine the best means to avoid potential flooding and excess groundwater. The proper soil grade can prevent basement leaks before they start, by directing the flow of water flow away from your home.
