Why Is Storm Drainage So Important?
We need rain, obviously, as it fuels so much of the world around us. However, too much rain can be quite devastating, especially to properties that have trouble dealing with the deluge. If your property is at all prone to flooding, or if you frequently have areas of standing water following a storm of any size, you really ought to consider investing in a storm drainage system. This may be something as simple as using gutters to move water away from your home, or a more comprehensive, in–ground system. Whatever the specifics of your particular storm drainage system, though, know that it can benefit you in many ways.
First of all, flooding on the property surrounding your home creates a very real threat of damage to your home, especially to your foundation. Because foundational leaks can be so detrimental, and foundation repairs so costly, it only makes sense to eliminate the risk of encountering such problems as best you can. This is what storm drainage allows for. Whether you want to avoid foundation problems, water in the basement, or a muddy mess of a yard, we can help.
What Are My Storm Drainage Options?
As we mentioned above, a lot of homeowners simply use gutters in order to divert water away from their homes. However, this is not really of much use if your property surrounding your home is still going to become oversaturated with that water. More involved systems, such as foundation drains, may be advisable. A foundation drain is one specifically designed to move water away from the foundation of your home. They entail the use of perforated drain pipes, buried on your property and usually surrounded by gravel. The benefit of such a system is that they dispense water throughout the property evenly, as opposed to allowing it to pool in one place.
You may also want to consider the use of a drain tile system, which is similar to a foundation drain in that perforated pipes and gravel are still used. However, they are installed anywhere on the property in which extra storm drainage is needed, and are not specifically used for foundation protection. Even simple fixes, such as the use of rain barrels, can help. Contact us today to learn more about our storm drainage offerings.
