Addition Drainage 2014

With the addition siding and cafeteria deck complete it was necessary to address the addition entrances. These are areas of high traffic and in their current condition mud was tracked all of the house due to improper water control. With Cafeteria being the next major project on the list we wanted to make sure water was kept off the Cafeteria walls to avoid future issues. Both entrances were completely dug up to get the grade lower and allow space for concrete to be poured. Instead of a small concrete pad the entire area is now concrete to allow for easy water evacuation and also avoid and presence of mud. Under the fire escape is now a drainage basin which collects all water from multiple gutters. When the water collects in the basin it is drained 50′ away down the hill to avoid any washing out near the house.
