Drainage Around Your Home

Drainage Problem - No Ground Slope Away From The Base Of Walls

Ground Not Sloping Away - Drainage Problem

A common drainage problem picked up by ABIS inspectors during our pre-purchase building and pest inspections in Brisbane is ground or paving around the perimeter of the home not sloping away from the base of walls. If water, after rain, does not drain away from the base of walls then the area remains wet which often leads to foundation movement or timber pest problems. If this is type of drainage problems is in your Pre-Purchase Building and Pest report you should take into consideration the cost of improving the drainage so that water does not pond at the base of walls.
