Listol Grading Design

If you’ve ever had to deal with a flooded basement, you know what a nightmare it is. When buildings flood in a movie, it’s usually played for laughs. “Oh man, what a mess!” Sadly, in reality this isn’t the kind of thing you can just clean up before mom and dad get home from Aruba. Everything the water has touched needs to be dumped – any furniture, carpeting, clothes, you name it. Electronics need to be dried and safety checked, and the entire area needs to be dried and disinfected to prevent mold. This is why Listol grading design is the unsung hero of a safe home and secure investment.

Most home flooding (when not the fault of a burst pipe or sewage back up) is the result of poor grading design. When heavy rain or a rapid thaw after the winter causes water to pool and gather around the home and seep into it through any openings. This happens when the design of the home doesn’t account for the flow of water. When there is no natural sloping or safe drainage points to encourage the water to a less harmful place.

Often, only a little work needs to be done to make the grading of a home functional. Adding an angle here, a patch of soil there, a little bit can go a long way. Sadly, it can be difficult for a lay person to identify exactly what needs to be done. Our professional designers however are more than equipped for the task. With years of experience under their collective belts, they know exactly what to look for and how to help.

Don’t look back years from now, when you’re recouping for a flooded basement, paying thousands of dollars in clean up and wish you invested in Listol grading design. Get the job done now and save yourself the grief!
