While water is obviously a necessity for mankind, it can wreak havoc on your home or business if you do not have a proper drainage system in place. When you begin to notice water pooling in your basement, crawlspace, or yard, this is a telltale sign that it’s time contact the experts at American Structure Inc. to use our drainage services in North Little Rock.
Not only can excessive water be frustrating and time-consuming to clean up (which will only be a temporary solution), but the still water can cause bug infestations as well as long-term mold issues which, in turn, will affect the health of you and your loved ones.
Drainage is overlooked far too often and the damage, if gone unremedied, can be devastating and costly. In this post, we’ll discuss the importance of a proper drainage system, warning signs to look out for, and the services that we provide. Be sure to contact us today if you’ve noticed leaks or pooling around your home!
Common Causes of Drainage Issues
There is a wide array of issues that can be a factor in causing drainage problems, but in our many years as construction specialists, we’ve definitely witnessed situations that are more common than others. The main reasoning behind flooded basements and crawl spaces is that the water isn’t being guided away from the home properly. More often than not, this is because of the gutters. Either the downspouts aren’t pointed away from the home as they should be, or they’ve become so clogged that the water isn’t following the proper path and is thus collecting in areas around the foundation, causing landscape and structural damage.
We’ve also noticed a pattern of people needing drainage solutions following a new landscaping project. The grading of your yard is extremely important, and even landscapers mistakenly forget about this from time to time. So if you’re considering sprucing up your yard, be sure to remember to grade away from the home!
Piping is another cause of pooling in your home or structure. Like everything else in life, pipes get old and stop functioning as they should. Often caused by the buildup of mineral deposits, which leads to corrosion, this is a major source of drainage issues. When we come out for our initial consultation, we’ll be able to determine if this is the reason behind your drainage problems.
