How to Spot Drainage Problems
If you are wondering if you need help with drainage issues, here are a few tips to help you recognize drainage problems.
You see cracks forming on concrete surfaces and the faces of buildings. Nine times out of ten a drainage issue is at fault. You need to deal with the issue or the cracks and your expenses in fixing them will get a lot worse.
You start to see gaps or separations showing up between lawn structures like a patio and your home. Or there may even be a gap under a sidewalk, patio or building foundation. These need to be evaluated on the spot as they are most commonly due to drainage issues, will always get worse, and can lead to expensive structural damage if neglected.
You want your lawn to be nice and green but when you see patches of green showing up on your patio, sidewalks, driveway, or any other surface, there is typically a drainage problem. This is not a matter of heavy rains or a rainy season but inadequate drainage so that water collects. By fixing your drainage issue the green algae causing your “green” problem will go away and so will the risk of structural problems that are not as obvious.
Erosion from Water Runoff
If your property is on a slope, you may have problems with soil erosion and even structural problems. One low-lying property there can be problems with a shallow water table. Aquifers that run through rock formations can be issues on some riverside property. And, when you build on sandy soil, drainage problems can severely damage your buildings.
