A grading problem that can't be fixed???

Hi L:
A grading problem that CAN'T BE FIXED??!! And on a house one year old!!! Whew...... this sounds ungood.

I can't imagine what grading problem on new construction can't be fixed. My first house, a 1906 Victorian, had the surrounding grade gradually rise until the house acutally sat in a depression. Now this is what you would call a tough fix.....I wound up jacking up the entire house and extending the concrete foundation up about 16".....but certainly not a 'can't fix'

You must fix your grading problem. Fighting the natural flow of water is one of life's greater challanges, and one I don't recommend.

Perhaps if you can explain your grading problem some possible fixes might be available. :-)

Take care

Bruce M
