Protect Your Home: Deal With Downspout Discharge
One of the easiest (and least expensive) ways to keep your basement dry is to properly manage your drainage downspouts. During heavy or extended periods of rain, rainwater from your roof’s gutters is directed down to the area close to your foundation. Water that is allowed to pool in this area will inevitably find its way into your basement. Luckily, the foundation repair pros at Rapid-Dri Foundation Solutions can help you control downspout discharge with a few simple solutions.
Drain Water Away From Your Home
Directing water from your downspouts into a drain pipe is a fairly common solution to controlling rainwater runoff. The team at Rapid-Dri Foundation Solutions will simply dig a trench and lay a solid drain pipe inside of it. Water would be deposited at least 10 feet away from the foundation into an emitteror drain grate. The only downside to this solution is clogging or freezing in the winter.
The Catch Basin Approach
Another very effective method of controlling downspout discharge is the use of a catch basin. We will place the basin directly beneath the downspout. It will serve as a collection point before transferring the water to a drain pipe and out away from the foundation. A grate that covers the basin serves as a filter to prevent debris from clogging your underground pipe. Catch basins come in a variety of styles and colors, making it easy to match the new component to your home.
