Surface Water Management



πŸ’§πŸ’§πŸ’§ April showers bring...the potential for wet basements. Did you know...90% of the water that ends up in your basement used to be on your roof?


What Can You Do?


Here’s 5 ways to avoid an expensive issue:


πŸ’§ Make sure all water is moved quickly more than 6 feet from the perimeter of your house.

πŸ’§ All gutters and downspouts should be aligned appropriately and extend away from the house.

πŸ’§ Create a positive grade away from the house with high concentrate clay soil to ensure water is not sitting close to the house and percolating down to the foundation walls.

πŸ’§ Get a moisture reader. This inexpensive, useful tool will help you determine if you have a moisture issue in your basement.


Don’t call a waterproofing company. They may fix the problem but not the cause. We are always happy to help you find less expensive and longer-lasting ways to address the issue.
