Helpful Foundation Tips
Keep your lawn lush and green
To keep your foundation in good care, year-round soil saturation is essential. A simple rule of thumb is to keep the grass and plants around your house lush and green. Feel free to speak to us about soaker houses and soil stabilization.
Watch out for erosion
Foundations can also be protected by stopping erosion due to excess water. Sometimes the bottoms of your gutter spouts may come loose, shooting water straight down to the edge of your foundation. This causes erosion close to your foundation and will lead to damage. Be sure to look out for damaged gutters, pooling of water close to your home, or any area where soil has been washed away from your foundation.
All in all, it’s always important to protect the soil surrounding your home from erosion. Grass and other forms of landscaping will help prevent erosion.
