Especially during hurricane season, exterior drainage is important to keep water from puddling in a yard. A homeowner in Sanford, FL was experiencing water piling up in his yard after rains and it was damaging his lawn. It was also unsightly. Because of this, he called Florida Foundation Authority to have us provide an expert repair.
Our inspector, Zeke Fowler, visited the home and did a thorough inspection of the issues at hand. He determined that the drainage issue could be mended by rerouting the downspout lines to the street instead of onto the lawn.
Our experienced crew went to the home and performed this repair. This involved extending the downspout conductor lines to empty into the street. In order to do this, they dug under the concrete and put the lines under it and into the street. They backfilled the soil to make it look like we were never there!
Additionally, we also used our PolyRenewal system to level a section of the concrete sidewalk to prevent water pooling in one area.
The homeowner is very happy with the work we completed and no longer needs to work about water pooling in his yard.
