The right soil grade can prevent basement leaks before they start by directing the water flow away from or around the house.The first rule to grading is: the soil should always slope away from your home. It sounds like common sense but foundations are often set too deep in the ground during construction causing marshy ground, wet basements or flooded slabs. Many building code officials respond to this problem by requiring that the top of the foundations or slabs sit at least six inches above the highest point of the soil at any location around the house. Also the ground must fall away from the foundation at least six inches within the first 10 feet around the perimeter of the house. Remember, this is just the minimum requirement. When it comes to residential grading - the more slope the better.
If you have grade problems for an existing house, we can help. We can take a look at the overall lot grading and the layout and where surface water may enter from adjacent properties, and offer you a solution.
Trench Drain Installation
Flat yards with no slope are at a disadvantage as the movement of water through the earth is minimal and heavy rainfalls cause pooling, even up to flooding levels. The movement of sub-surface water can be increased by intercepting and diverting its flow through a drainage system embedded in narrow trenches, sometimes called a French drain. A French Drain is a process where we cut an individual slot with a trencher and use a fabric covered rigid drain tile vertically or horizontally to intercept water and divert it to a more desirable location. Many golf courses and farmers use french drains and sub-surface drainage to facilitate water away or to greens, fairways and farms. We install many French Drains to drain those pools of standing water in your yard."
