Grading & Drainage
Why Is Grading and Drainage Important
When construction takes place on uneven ground, water drainage is an extremely important consideration. If the land has not been graded correctly, water won’t drain properly; instead of being channeled away from the building, it could flow toward it. In such a case, during significant rainfall, water would accumulate around the building foundation, damage the cinder blocks, wash away the landscape vegetation, and pose a threat of interior flooding and water damage. Because of this, precise and reliable land grading services are crucial to any construction project. It not only assures a solid base on which to build, but it provides effective long-term water drainage and prevents damage to the topography and building. A flooded basement is a large bill that homeowners want to avoid.
