At Drainage First, we specialize is storm drains, French drains, and basement waterproofing serving Atlanta to ensure your home and your yard are comfortable, safe, and clean.
Signs You Can Benefit from Storm Drainage
The right drainage system will serve your yard and your home by funneling storm water away from your property. If you’ve noticed any of the signs that you may need better drainage in your yard, contact a storm water management company for further evaluation.
- Standing water that lasts for several hours after a rainfall is a common sign that additional drainage is needed on your property. The next time it rains, take a walk around your yard to check for puddles or other signs of standing water that might indicate poor drainage.
- Even if you don’t typically notice standing water in your yard, the close proximity of a natural water source, such as a pond, creek, stream, river, or wetland area, can put your home at risk for flooding, particularly during prolonged rainy weather. Adding storm drains can help you prevent the damage to your yard and your home that unexpected flooding can cause.
- If you plan to add significant hardscaping to your property, such as walkways, pool decking, or a large patio, it’s a good idea to evaluate how adding concrete or brick will affect your yard’s drainage. Installing a storm drain can offset any loss in natural drainage that may occur after construction.
- The best way to find out if existing buried downspout drain lines are working properly is to walk around your house with an umbrella during a heavy rain storm. Lines buried more than 10 years are more likely to be partially clogged or compromised and are in need of replacing.
