Professionals utilize various methods for draining and grading services. For example, French drainage systems often involve a drainage pipe connected to a downspout.
This downspout collects the water and then, through a series of pipes, flows the excess water onto a street or a more remote part of the yard. In this area, excess water won’t affect your home’s integrity.
Sometimes, professionals use sump pumps. With this solution, water collects in a basin and “pumps” to a drainage pipe. This pipe then releases the water into a safe area.
Grading creates a slope in your land so that water does not collect near your home. To best understand which drainage solution will work best for you, contact our team today.
