Some non-construction-related options you can take to help divert rainwater are to make sure your gutters are clear, extend your downspouts, build a rain garden or add compost to your property. If you choose to extend your downspouts you can use aluminum extensions, splash blocks, a buried drain pipe or drain sleeves. Taking precautions, whether it be an excavation project or a new drain, is very important as extended standing water damage from storms can damage your home’s foundation over time and create a larger structural issue.
