Making the Grade
(As in your foundation)
Our dry summer and fall of 2012 may have created problems for your foundation. Check to see if you have depressions in the soil surrounding your home. If so this is a problem that needs to be corrected to prevent water from pooling around your concrete causing cracking in your basement.
The slope around your house should be 1” per foot for 6’ out. This puts the rainwater out away from your home. A simple job that you can do on the weekend or if you need a handyman, call me. I’m not a handyman but I know some good ones!
