Many homeowners are unaware of how important “setting the grade” for a house foundation. This is very important because if land grading is not done properly, runoff from rain can be directed toward your home’s foundation. This water can eventually compromise the foundation, and cause water damage to your home itself.
If the ground around your house is completely flat with no slope, or even worse, if it slopes down toward the foundation you may need to call A1 Waterproofing. Without a proper grade you may develop a drainage problem, or you may already have one. How do you know if your house has the correct grade?
If you own a home, you may find yourself having to do some grading to correct drainage issues. Poor drainage can lead to leaky basements. Most times if you have a basement with water issues, it could be contributing because you don’t have the correct slope away from the foundation. In order to grade properly, you will need to first know how much slope you need away from your house.
When grading land extending from a foundation, a good rule of thumb is about 6 inches for the first 10 feet. This would give you a “slope” of about 5 percent.
After determining how much slope you need then we will determine how much soil is required to do the job.
The area graded can either go back to the way it look before with new sod laid or patio's replaced or you can have something entirely new.
