Rain, snow, and other elements all cause wear and tear on any form of pavement. One simple way to post-pone the erosion of materials like asphalt or concrete are to install proper drainage systems where flooding occurs. As you can see in the project images, this lot had water being collected in an area slightly lower than the rest of the lot. Any slight variation in the height of pavement will cause this type of flooding and wear down the area quickly, causing unsightly cracks and other problems within. A few, or sometimes just one drain installation can prevent water from pooling up and prolong the life of your driveway significantly.
In residential areas, and even some commercial areas, a drain can prevent water from pooling up in your lawn. If your property is constantly overwhelmed by water, you risk damaging the foundation of your home from cracks, flooding, leaks, and even mold growth if left untreated. The cost of installing one drain is much less than having to repair the entire foundation of your home, and helps prevent the risk of dangerous mold growing within your own home or business.
