Don’t overlook having a well-functioning drainage system for your yard. Water damage is a huge issue that can happen and cost you a lot in expenses if you don’t take care of it immediately. Estimates say that the average cost to repair water damage is close to $3,000, but it can reach $8,000 in severe circumstances.
Some consequences of not inspecting your drainage system include:
- Wood rooting and mold build-up
- Damage to your structure and foundation
- Yard Erosion
- Asphalt and concrete damage
- Water infiltration
- Pest infestations (they love water sources)
It’s always better to be safe than sorry. Take the initiative to take care of your yard drainage, no matter where you live!
