Regrade completed in Wilson, NY to correct negative pitch and to remove overgrown vegetation to prevent damage of foundation. Regrade with topsoil and added a lawn scape bubbler pot to shed water away from the foundation. Homeowners couldn’t believe the transformation around their home. Great job guys as always!

One common problem that must be corrected around your foundation is negative pitch (soil sloping toward your home). Allowing water to collect near the foundation will saturate the soil and can create pressure that pushes on your foundation.

Among other issues, soil under a deck will compact over time. Compacted soil may allow water to saturate topsoil, which can allow water to enter your basement or crawlspace. Also, concrete pads or concrete steps can compress the soil under them allowing them to drop and have a negative pitch. The majority of homes that I visit have trees, bushes, or shrubs planted right next to the foundation. Overtime as the plants become larger with substantial root base and the need for water, can affect the topsoil grading and compaction more and more causing negative pitch.

The first line of defense to keep your basement dry is to make sure gutter water dumps away from your foundation. Fix the negative pitch or low spots around your basement with topsoil, so the watersheds away from your foundation. Add window wells to maintain proper drainage and grade. Add window well covers to help keep water and debris out of the window wells.

Waters Basement Services, Inc. gets this question quite a bit: Why do basement walls crack and bow?

Basement walls have earth pressure pushing inward against them. Hydrostatic pressure is the reason for cracks. The ground around your foundation moves a few times a year. In winter when the ground freezes frost expands the soil. Also, wet soil expands in spring and nay rainy season. If drainage is poor and the soil adjacent to the basement walls becomes saturated, or frost penetration becomes severe, the force pushing against the walls may become extremely high. In summer when the ground becomes dry from lack of waters soil will contract. Hydrostatic pressure build-up can lead to floor cracking and heaving. The majority of cracks will begin at a corner of a basement window.

These are photos of before, and after wall cracks repairs our guys have done in Grand Island, Lockport, and Williamsville, NY.
