Did you find a nice surprise when you went down to your basement after a storm and found water down there? Let us bring topsoil in and get that water away from your house so you have no more worries. Fill dirt around the foundation is key in preventing thousands of dollars of structural damage. It is much cheaper to install soil around your foundation and stop the problem before it causes major water damage. Foundation soil grade is important to consider for new or existing homes for preventing drainage problems. Soil should always slope away from the house. We can create Swales, Burms, or French Drains to divert water away from the foundation.
Dirt around your foundation :
A home’s foundation has the odds stacked against it from the day it’s built. When a home is excavated to make room for the foundation walls, space is left between the outer edge of the foundation wall and the earth around it. This area is then backfilled with excavated soil, creating an area of loose, fluffed earth. This earth is more absorbent than the unexcavated soil around it will ever be, and because of this, a false water table is created around your home. In most yards, whenever it rains, more water collects in the area immediately around your foundation than anywhere else.
As this water builds up, it exerts pressure on the foundation walls. This water will pass through the foundation walls in any way it possibly can- through cracks in the foundation walls, the basement or crawl space floor, or most often through the foundation wall floor joint. Additionally, water can be pushed through porous concrete and grout, entering the basement or crawl space in the form of dampness and humidity. In order to solve this problem, water must be kept away from the area around the foundation whenever possible. And when this isn’t possible, that water must be removed.
