There are innumerable benefits to a high quality drainage system. A drainage system in working order can not only save you money and use water more effectively, but make your home look even more beautiful. Drainage also contributes to the health of your lawn, making it lush and green so it can be enjoyed during the warmer weather. Water damage is also a definite threat to the longevity of any building, and drainage can help to protect it. Aqua-Bright LLC is here to fill you in on information about drainage systems in Maryland.
Flooding And your Home
From 2002 to 2011, the total of flood insurance claims made averaged nearly $3 billion a year. Did you know that in high risk areas, there is a 1 in 4 chance of flooding during a 30 year mortgage? Unfortunately, the losses which flooding often causes are not covered by general homeowner’s and business insurance policies. This is what makes drainage so important for any home.
The Rise Of Inclement Weather
Many unforeseen inclement weather events, which used to be uncommon, are becoming increasingly common. These include severe storms, hurricanes, and tornados. Many of these can often contribute to flooding. It is important that your home is adequately prepared to handle these inclement weather situations with adequate drainage. This investment will protect your yard and basement from expensive water damage which may be difficult to correct later on.
