Importance of Correct Drainage
Impact on the Soil
One the biggest impacts that you’ll find, if water is allowed to pool around the base of your home, is on the soil. Excessive moisture or water in the soil can result in the soil beginning to shift or swell, which can cause a host of problems. You might find this causes cracks in your concrete slab and it can even cause excessive settling issues, which can cause serious damage to your home if left unchecked. This is one of the major reasons why correct drainage is so important for the overall health and well-being of your home’s foundation.
