Final Grade and Sod for $3,800 in Edmonton
Christine hired River Valley Final Grading to complete the final grade and install sod on their new property. The final grading of your property is very important. Having your property graded reduces erosion and improves drainage on the property, which in turn will help to protect your home. In particular, your basement is the most prone to water damage. Without proper grading, water can drain towards your house, damaging your home’s foundation and in turn your basement. This damage can lead to even more damage such as mold and mildew, which can be hazardous to your family’s health.
If you have noticed a musty smell coming from your basement and any of these signs it’s best to call a pro for an inspection. You most likely have a leak resulting from exterior damage to your home. Catching it early will prevent more damage and costs down the line.
