Pooling water on concrete and other hardscaped areas can cause frost hazards and can allow water to enter your home, causing damage. A channel drain can be installed on any hard surface to capture storm water and redirect it to a more suitable area. At times, it may be necessary to remove portions of concrete or pavers and regrade the area to allow for proper drainage. Then concrete or pavers can be reinstalled with the correct pitch.
Water entering a home can damage the garage doors, as well as flooding the basement causing mold and property damage. Frost hazards are a major cause of slip and fall insurance claims.
Poor drainage and improper grading can allow water to enter your basement.
Regrading around your foundation can be helpful, but it is typically only part of the solution. Downspout extensions are the most effective way to redirect a large amount of storm water away from your home. French drains are useful to collect water along your foundation and redirect it away from your home. At times it may be necessary to dig down to your footings and install a water tight membrane along your foundation. Flooded basements can cause toxic mold to grow and can have a major negative impact on your homes value.
