Damages Cause by Poor Drainage
Home foundations are designed to withstand extreme pressure and resist erosion, but poor drainage can slowly erode the strongest parts of a foundation and compromise the underlying soil. This short video clip covers some simple tips for preventing foundation damage from poor drainage.
Not only can poor drainage lead to pools of water that attract insects, but they can also penetrate the soil and tiny foundation cracks and cause major long-term damage. Preventing this is as simply keeping your gutters and downspouts free of debris and applying the protective sealant to the driveway and patios.
