Suffering from poor indoor or outdoor drainage is a huge headache as a homeowner. Indoors, a leaky basement can cause structural damage to your foundation walls, and for finished basements can destroy your wooden beams, sheet rock, and even your personal belongings. Outdoors, you may find a damaged retaining wall, puddles of water left on your property, or improper gutter drainage.

What are the risks of ignoring drainage issues?
Just like all things in life, ignoring a drainage issue can lead to more complications. If water is finding it’s way into your basement, it’s only a matter of time before your basement walls start showing cracks, putting your entire foundation at risk.
Regarding external drainage issues, like pools of water building up after rain, you can expect that water to find it’s way in somehow. Water is very good at causing damage to poorly drained homes, and make the situation worse every time it’s allowed to sit on your property.
