1. Cuts Down on Erosion of Your Driveway

Rain water and snow piling up on your driveway causes erosion because most driveway materials are

 

Drainage and basement waterproofing in York PAsemi-permeable, meaning they allow water and moisture to seep in. This is true of cement, asphalt, and stone.

Rain and snow bring oils, de-icing salts, gasoline residue, and fertilizers. These all work to eat away at the driveway, weakening it and leading to cracks, uneven pavement, and an unhealthy situation in your yard. All of those contaminants spill over into your lawn, garden, and basement.

 

2. Keeps Your Yard from Flooding

Too much water floods your yard. Your lawn can be overwhelmed by water, killing the grass, your trees, flowers, shrubs, and can cause a bad situation with your basement (more on that later). Installing a drain in your driveway helps remove that excess water, move it safely away from your home and keep your yard and basement safe.

 

3. Protects Your Foundation
