Tis’ the season for April showers. Rainwater is incredibly beneficial during springtime since it helps rejuvenate plants that have sat dormant through the winter, so they are able to thrive in the warmer months. However, at Rhine Landscaping, “We believe in keeping rain water outside where it belongs.” If your home isn’t equipped with a proper drainage system, heavy rainfall could damage your home’s foundation or flood your basement. We’re here to fill you in on the importance of our waterproofing and drainage services in Maryland.
Drainage systems are put into place to ensure that rainwater can safely evacuate your gutters and downspouts and be funneled away from the foundation of your home. The wind and inclement weather we experienced during the harsh winter season could have caused twigs, dirt, debris, and shingle grit to accumulate within your gutters and downspouts – utterly clogging them and preventing proper drainage. Failure to address drainage issues can result in costly damage to both the interior of your home (basement/attic) and the exterior (roofing/siding). Additionally, standing water can attract bacteria and pests that carry disease like mosquitoes and rodents. Rhine Landscaping offers the following services:
- Re-grading Lawns
- Installing French Drains
- Connecting Downspouts to Underground Drainage Systems
- Basement Waterproofing
WHY IS BASEMENT WATERPROOFING IMPORTANT?
Several basement waterproofing companies would have you believe that allowing rainwater into your basement is fine, since you can hire them to collect it and pump it back outside. However, in our experience we have found that most of these companies prefer to work from the inside of your home out because they aren’t equipped to handle the necessary labor it takes to excavate water from around the foundation of your home. At Rhine, we have the experience and manpower to handle even the toughest drainage problems and waterproof your basement before rainwater takes its toll on your interior flooring and personal belongings. Give us a call.
