If you haven’t had to deal with any flooding or storm damage, consider yourself lucky! Maturing landscapes, erosion, patios and pools being added all change the way our lots deal with the water they receive. A lot of times these obstacles will create places that hold water and/or don’t drain as well as they use to. Our crews have been busy with foundation drains, sump pumps, French drains, interior sheetrock, flooring and baseboard repairs. Being proactive can save you thousands when it comes to this type of water damage as well as reduce mosquito activity.
Drainage inspections are a must if you’re moving onto a new property or have been noticing standing water around your current one. You should include an irrigation evaluation as well. Rain as well as neglected sprinkler systems can cause similar damage if not maintained and monitored.

These are just a few things to keep in mind as we’re going through the rainy season here in Texas. Remember it is a good idea to address repairs or bring in a professional before you find yourself searching for towels to dry those floors or having to throw a pump in the flowerbed to keep water from getting too deep. As always we thank you for taking time out to read and hope the information we covered this month serves you well!
