Causes of foundation and yard drainage problems

Often, yard drainage problems are not as clear as the formation of water pools on your basement floor. Outside of your home, you may encounter puddling close to your foundation walls, musty odors in your basement, or water erosion of dirt and grass in your lawn.

Basement water is most often the result of the following circumstances

  • Improper sloping of the land around your home. Land should slope away from the foundation.
  • Poor Soil that breaks down when hit with heavy rainfall and melting snow.
  • Sloping of land that deposits water onto the lawn near your home.
  • Broken down gutters, gutters filled with debris, or no gutters at all.
  • Downspouts that fail to move water away from the foundation walls.
