Bailing or Phisics?

            We sure have had a lot of rain these past three days; rain enough to test the water tightness of anybody’s basement.

            Most problems stem from the fact that the ground settles around the foundation over time, causing water to flow back in toward the foundation walls. Filling in these low spots, and actually mounding it some, will cause the water to obey the laws of physics and keep its distance from the wall.
            Even better, if the problem is severe, lay some plastic on this incline and anchor it down with 1-2” stone.
