Foundation Maintenance Tips
Keeping gutters and foundation drains clean and in good repair, waterproofing, and grading your yard away from your home help keep water away from the foundation of your home. Foundation drains and downspouts connect to a storm sewer lateral that connects to a storm main or daylights into a ditch or drainage way. House connections can become blocked with debris or tree roots that need to be cleaned out or replaced.
