Corrective Grading



Grade solutions

Over time the soil around a home will settle and can be the cause of water leakage into a basement.

Corrective grading and the installation of proper drain tile is done to solve water intrusion problems in a structure.

Our experts can waterproof your basement and solve water intrusion headaches. We first inspect the home to see if other issues are involved with your water intrusion problem. Plugged gutters, or no gutters are a good place to begin the investigation. Grading and drain tile are next.

When done correctly, the slope of earth away from the house should be done so it creates positive flow away from the structure.

Window sills in the basement area should be built up above the grade of the home and sloped away. The top rim should be clearly above grade with the ground sloping away so that water is not channeled into the window well.
