With all the heavy rain we have been having this summer, are you ready to wave the white flag to the water on your property? Property damage accounts for 96 percent of all property damage insurance claims and water damage is over 20 percent of the cause of damage to properties. With figures like that, it is important to know some basics of water management around your home and how to correct issues before they become an insurance claim.
If you have mold on your basement walls, you have a water problem. This might sound really simple, but mold is a true sign of water sitting and pooling with no place to dissipate. A professional contractor such as Ince Landscape Construction & Management can help remediate any issues you are having with water entering your basement such as pvc drain pipe, catch basins, dry wells, exterior french drains, trench drains, downspout and sump pump redirection, corrective grading to move the water away from your home and/or reduce erosion or stones to help impede the flow of water.
Maybe you have standing water in your property! Don’t worry; there are many solutions to this problem, as well. Solutions may include many of the same options for water in your basement but another solution may also be adding landscaping to help absorb water and keep it on site to be used in a more natural manner.
