Frequently Asked Questions

Poor drainage leads to erosion as well as foundation issues. If your lot is on a hill, poor drainage will rapidly cause excessive erosion on hillsides. Suppose water is pooling and flowing towards the home. In that case, it will cause excessive weight loads to be applied laterally to the foundation wall, which encourages bowing and cracking in the foundation. Wet dirt is significantly heavier than dry dirt.
At Schmitt Waterproofing, we use various methods to control the water around homes, including dry creek beds, French drain systems, and catch basins. We will implement the necessary design for a drainage system to make your drainage problems go away depending on your issues.
We can remove and place back most landscape finishes around homes back to original condition, making it appear as if we were never there. We often remove and reinstall sod to complete drainage system installations. We can also seed and place straw in areas where grass has not been able to grow.
