As an excavation and drainage contractor, D. Kyle Stearns may recommend grading to prevent wet basements. Heavy rainfall or snowmelt may result in a wet or flooded basement if your property has not been properly landscaped. D. Kyle Stearns is a ‘wet basement prevention’ specialist. There are a number of reasons you experience water accumulation in your basement. Many of our rural clients have called us out because water leaks into their basements after a period of wet weather. Clogged gutters cause rainwater and roof runoff to spill water right next to your foundation. Sometimes water will be diverted toward the foundation due to incorrect grading. Land that slopes inward toward the house causes water flow right to your foundation. Poor site drainage that is not corrected can actually lead to foundation collapse.
D. Kyle Stearns Contracting does it all. Our heavy-duty excavating equipment can dig culverts and ponds, recontour your hillsides, and special drain pipes can be installed to remedy your flooding issues. As a full-service excavation company, we inspect and correct the grading around your house. To resolve drainage issues, we install Curtain Drains, Foundation Drains, Catch basins, Culverts, Rain Gutters, and Underground gutter drains. If you have a wet basement, ponding, puddling, erosion, or other issues, give us a call. D. Kyle Stearns Contracting is the leading drainage contractor serving Storrs CT and towns in surrounding areas. Call 860-450-1592 for a consultation today.
