Excessive water can do lots of expensive damage to your home. If you have problems with water standing in your yard after heavy drains, or if you find water in the crawl space after heavy rains, there are several options to consider. The most simple, lest expensive is adding a down spout extension to your down spouts. This will allow the water further away from the foundation. If this does not help your situation you can have a professional reposition your down spouts. There are also other options such as tranches and yard drains to install in the lawn.
