Waterproofing, French Drains, Sump Pumps

If water is seeping into your basement, installing a french drain and sump pump will solve the problem! When water enters your basement, it will be collected by the french drain and directed to the sump pump, which will push the water back outside where it belongs.

Yard Drainage

French Drains

Another ideal way to direct water away from your home is by installing French drains. French drains are trenches that lead water towards the lowest surface, enabling it to flow through gravel into an installed drain. After seeping into the drain, the water will follow a path leading it away from your home and into an emptying area. Installing DIY French drains is possible, yet very complicated and maintenance costs can become a nuisance. Therefore, hiring Santarella to install your French drains assures that your yard drainage solution is done professionally, effectively and cost-efficiently.

Underground PVC Pipes Connected to Gutter Downspouts

Gutter downspouts lead roof runoff away from your home. However, without installing underground PVC pipes, you run the risk of leaking that water into your basement if your downspout is not far enough away from your home's foundation. Therefore, you can avoid this possibility by connecting PVC pipes to your gutter downspouts to extend the roof runoff's path away from your house.

Foundation Grading

If your current grading consists of uneven surfaces and is causing flooding to your home, then grading is the easiest and best solution. By raising the grade level surrounding your home or in your crawlspace, stormwater will travel away from your home towards sewers and street gutters. This alone can prevent flood damage, mold growth, and foundation deterioration, saving you money and improving the health of your home and family.

Rain Gardens, Swales and River Stone, and Landscaping

both building a rain garden and strategically planting trees on your property not only enhances your home's beauty but also collects yard runoff. This yard drainage solution consists of plants and other objects, such as gravel and river stones, that allow soil to absorb water quickly. Swales are channels that connect downspouts to rain gardens. Overall, rain gardens offer the best of both worlds because they solve yard drainage issues and add to your landscaping's beauty.

Window Wells

Installing a window well to your basement's exterior will not only let light into your lowest level but will also prevent water from seeping into your window. This semi-circle yard drainage solution collects rain water and avoids letting runoff pour into your home through your basement windows.

Dry Wells

Dry wells are storage chambers that lead excess stormwater through drain pipes into the soil. Some people try to install a DIY dry well in their yard. However, dry wells are complex, and there is expertise required in the planning and installation to ensure they are an effective long-term solution for your property.

Rain Water Storage Tanks

Unlike most yard drainage solutions, rain water storage tanks save runoff once it is collected. These tanks store rain water that drips off of a roof and into pipes. Rain water storage tanks prevent runoff from seeping into your home and enable you to utilize the rain water for other uses, such as watering your garden.
