Drainage Information

There’s no substitution for proper drainage. We at Aqua-Bright know that especially well. A good drainage system can save you money and make your home look better. It also helps the health of your lawn, and in these spring months you want your lawn looking the best it possibly can. And floods are the most common natural disaster in the United States. From 2002 to 2011, total flood insurance claims averaged more than $2.9 billion per year. In high-risk areas, there is at least a 1 in 4 chance of flooding during a 30-year mortgage. However, losses due to flooding are not covered under typical homeowner’s and business insurance policies.
Many unforeseen weather events, such as hurricanes and tornadoes, can cause this kind of flooding. And in the past few years, these once rare weather events are becoming more and more frequent. You have to save yourself the trouble of a flooded yard and basement by having a proper drainage system installed onto your house. It’s the best investment you could possibly make.

Other basement waterproofing companies work from the inside out, after the water has done its damage. Aqua-Bright believes water should never get into your basement. Our crews hand excavate around your home’s foundation, and then take the necessary steps to ensure water stays out. These steps could include installing French drains or connecting down spouts to underground drainage systems. We also waterproof the exterior as an added measure against moisture.
If necessary, we can regrade your lawn so water flows away from your house and eliminates the problem of standing water. This method is common with commercial drainage systems. The Aqua-Bright method prevents the problem of water damage from occurring again. Our trained crews leave the property exactly as they found it, and work quickly and safely.
Keep water out of your basement, call Aqua-Bright today at 410-489-9009 or email us.
You may need our drainage services if you answer yes to the questions below:

  • Do you have standing water in your yard for days after it rains?
  • Do you have water constantly in the edge of you plant beds?
  • Is your sump pump constantly running?
  • Do you have water leaking into your basement?
  • Are your downspouts and sump pump eroding the soil/mulch from around your foundation?
