Grading

Unfortunately water does not always go away from your house and where we want it in the yard resulting in wet basements and muddy yards. If the dirt along the foundation or in the yard has settled or worse yet was not graded properly when it was built it can create major issues especially if it is directing the water towards the house. Broken or disconnected gutter and downspouts as well as concrete settling and cracking are the other common ways water gets into the house. Often times wet basements can be prevented by regrading a section along the house or removing concrete that is trapping water by the house.

When we are grading an area it is very important to check everything with a laser level. This measures the different heights of the area so we make sure the water flows where it needs to.

The most important part of any grading or regrading project is keeping the water away from buildings. In any situation at a home or business the water needs to flow away from the buildings and where it can be effectively managed.

There is more to regrading and grading and then just water management. Unusable areas can be graded into useable yard space and help expand available parking spots and parking areas too. Importing black dirt can be spread and graded out to help gardens grow better and improve the soil in the yard too.

Once the water is flowing where it needs to go we need to restore the area back to normal. If it is yard space we can install sod or grass seed to turn it back into grassy yard space. If we needed to remove a concrete patio or sidewalk we can install a new paver patio or walkway to give you a new, properly graded patio and sidewalk.
