For problems related to water in your yard, your basement is flooding, the first action we take is to check if your drainage and grading has any issues. The main factors that influence the interior problems are represented by poor downspouts, a grade that slopes towards the foundation and also other exterior problems.
One of the services we offer in the Boston, Lakeville, Cambridge, Shrewsbury, Weymouth, Burlington, and Reading areas is yard drainage and grading, for an affordable price. After the procedures, your yard will be more even, it will dry much faster after heavy rains, so that means you will have a better yard grading. In addition, in this way, your foundation, basement or crawlspace will not be affected by water anymore, when it is heavily raining.
The gutters are the main element when talking about a good drainage system. Their main purpose is to direct the water away from your foundation, when it rains.
Downspout extensions are important elements we use for making sure that water is drained at a large distance away into your yard. Also, it is important to check if the gutters are made the right way, and they are not clogged.
When a french drain is installed the right way, it expels the water our of your basement after collecting it. Also, besides the fact that a french drain can collect water from underneath a foundation, it can also collect it from your yard. So it can be used both outside, directing the water away from your place, and inside, directing it to the sump pump.
Being buried, the efficiency of french drains is influenced by gravity. Having the proper minimum downward slope will ensure the drain works at maximum efficiency..
