Drainage is one of those things that rarely comes up on a house tour. To achieve proper drainage in your yard, you’ll either have a project on your hands or a contractor’s fee to pay off, which may cause you to want to look elsewhere. So what do you do if you’re all moved in and realizing you have drainage issues? Figure out the root cause of your drainage problems, and decide from there whether you can fix it all on your own by grading your yard, or if you need to call in some professional help.
Those 70 percent may enhance their coverage moving forward, but for them, it’s already too late. The uninsured damage has been done. If history is any indication, the key for consumers is to avoid being among this 70 percent left staring at a claim that will never be processed or only partially paid.
Here are three reasons to look into grading your yard sooner rather than later. Any land with a sloping hill leading into your property is going to cause water to drain into your yard or driveway. That water will eventually wear away your landscaping, leaving rivers between your bushes or pools of water in your backyard and potentially causing flooding problems in your basement. If you don’t fix the problem as soon as you recognize it, your property will be eaten away by water erosion, leading to a more expensive future project of having to bring soil in and re-landscape your entire yard.
