Photo Album: Exterior Drainage Upgrade will Keep a Business Dry in Worthington, OH

Album Description

Maintaining a safe workplace is crucial for business owners. When the owners of an internet technology firm in Worthington, OH, noticed water pooling near their building’s foundation after heavy rains, they wanted to find the best way to correct this problem.

Water draining from the gutters and downspouts can easily collect near the building and seep inside. Not only are short downspouts a problem, the grading of the soil could have a negative impact, as well. If the soil is sloping down towards the foundation, water from the saturated soil could leak inside and cause various damage.

The business owners contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online, and we updated the property’s exterior drainage system. We installed new downspout conductor lines and buried them underground. The lines also were directed away from the building to keep water as far away from the foundation as possible. The ends of the buried downspout conductor lines were camouflaged with YardWell outlets, and the soil was regraded to slope away from the building.

The owners now have peace of mind knowing these reliable installations have helped create a safe and dry place of business.
