One of the main keys in avoiding basement or crawl space flooding is to manage the water in your yard. You can do this by:


  • Installing better yard drainage to get rid of excess water. This will stop your yard from flooding and causing soil expansion. Less soil expansion means less pressure on your basement or foundation walls.
  • Waterproofing your crawl space or basement. The best waterproofing is a system that takes care of drainage, and waterproofs the inside and outside walls. This protects your foundation from cracking and flooding.
  • Extend Your Downspouts – Carrying water away from your home is extremely important in keeping your basement dry
