Proper yard drainage in Cincinnati is an important part of a dry basement or crawlspace.
It is critical that surface water is directed away from your foundation. Our Specialists will be able to determine the best and most economical method to solve your drainage problems.
Here are some of the best practices to ensure proper drainage:
Downspout lines to carry the water away from your roof as far away from your foundation as possible.
Sloping the yard and landscaping away from the foundation to keep water from puddling against the foundation.
Curtain drains around foundation in situations where positive drainage is not possible.
French drains in the yard where surface water collects and cannot be drained naturally.
A retaining wall is a structure that holds back soil from a building or structure. It is also effective in dealing with flooding and keeping moister out of your basement or crawl space.
Downspout extensions redirect the water from your gutter into a safe place that will not lead the water to pool next to the foundation of your house and cause foundation problems.
Landscape Window Wells
Landscape window wells help reduce moisture near basement window wells. It also saves you time and hassle of cleaning out your window well.
Driveway Grate Drains
Use a trench drain to divert water from your driveway before unchecked water flow damages the garage or the foundation. Installing a driveway trench drain before water runoff can wipe out your driveway saves time and energy in the future.
