Has the rain created some major headaches for you?
Did you know that for every inch of rain that falls on 1,000 square feet of your roof produces more than 600 gallons of runoff? Kansas City gets on average almost 40 inches of rain a year!

Year after year, the KC metro area will continue to get hard rainfalls that may continue to cause major issues with your property.
The best yard drainage solutions start with fixing the grade of your soil. This enables the water to drain freely away from the foundation of your home or a problem spot in your yard.
Downspout Water Diversion
Puddling near downspouts is one of the most common issues we see. Ideally, downspouts should kick out away from the home's foundation at about 6-10 feet. A buried PVC downspout extension could be installed to direct the water drainage away from the foundation.
French drains are a trench system that is dug in the middle or along the wet area of a yard. Essentially, a French drain system is a "sponge" that will collect the surface water and direct it to a different location.
