Drainage issues are more frequent than expected, especially during the winter. There’s never a good time for these problems to surface. If they do, you must know how to remedy the issues. Continue reading to learn about the most common causes of drainage problems you might experience this winter.
Downspouts And Gutters Become Misaligned
Downspouts and gutters are essential for the proper operation of your drainage system. To address downspout drainage issues, you should start by cleaning all debris from downspouts and drains so that rain and snow, for example, can effectively be carried away from your property. If your roof remains obstructed, your home may be susceptible to structural damage. Gutters that are bent, damaged, or drooping can also cause problems. Inspecting the gutters and downspouts to ensure they function well is best.
Insufficient Yard Grading
Water accumulating around a home or yard is a common problem. This can be an issue for a variety of reasons. First, it has the potential to destabilize your block or brick foundation. It can also penetrate any drywall, plaster, paneling, and insulation. As a result, this could cause mold to accumulate. Have the professionals at The Landscape Design Center come out and look at this problem to resolve it. You may need to regrade the area around your house to ensure proper drainage and water flow.
Issues With Your Plant Beds Or Garden
When creating a garden bed or hardscape, you must consider how sufficient drainage can impact your area. If water runs into the space, redesign it to provide proper drainage. If you cannot make a change, consider directing the water through a dry riverbed. Otherwise, your design may obstruct water movement and cause significant drainage issues.
