If you are like most Houston area homeowners, you are unaware of what the adequate grading (sloping) is needed around your home’s foundation.
This is a critical issue because if your land is not graded properly, water can be aimed directly toward your foundation.
Water running towards your home is a completely undesirable situation as it can eventually compromise the integrity of your foundation.
If the area around your home is flat, water can pool and you could develop problems with your foundation. Even worse would be if your yard is sloped towards your home because then you will have even more water rushing towards your foundation, which can definitely cause serious problems if you don’t have a drainage solution.
