FAQ: Foundation Pooling

What can I do to prevent recurring pooling against my foundation?

From Andrew in Charleston, IL

If you’re having standing water or puddling up against your home’s foundation, that really needs to be addressed quickly because that can lead to serious foundation problems in a really short amount of time.

Most of the time, homeowners can correct these problems themself by adding some additional dirt to get the water away from the house, and also looking at your gutters and your downspouts to make sure they’re running at least 10 feet away from the house.

These simple solutions are also something that Helitech would be happy to look at for a customer and take care of it for them.
