Water in Yards in Iowa and Nebraska
A lot of water can come down during a rainstorm. Water in your yard should dry out within one to two days after a heavy storm, but if your yard continues to remain wet, then you may have a serious problem. Stop dealing with water problems and contact a waterproofing company.

Often gutters are clogged with leaves and debris. You can prevent most water drainage problems simply by cleaning out your gutters. Also, repair any underground broken pipes and plumbing issues.

What Causes Water in Yard Problems?
Whether it's over-watering or poor soil conditions, we can correct your drainage problems. Too much water around your home can cause several problems, such as:
- Foundation failure: The soil expands, causing heaving and foundation damage.
- Wall damage: As the soil expands, it creates pressure against the foundation walls. This causes cracks and bowing or leaning walls.
- Sticking doors and windows: Foundation problems cause soil pressure, making windows and doors hard to open and close.
- Mold growth: Too much moisture creates mold and mildew, including insect infestations.
Poor drainage conditions can damage plants and foundations as well as create puddles in your yard. Also, standing water can lead to pest infestations. There are several factors that can cause water issues.
Some factors include:
- Improper land grading
- Low spots or depressions in the yard
- Compacted soils
- Leaky pipes
- Groundwater close to the surface
- Poor drainage
- Runoff water
- Poor soil composition
If your home has any of these issues, we can help. Don't ignore pooling water in your yard. At Jerry's Waterproofing, we offer basement waterproofing solutions to eliminate water in your yard.
Solutions for Water in Your Yard in NE and IA
At Jerry's Waterproofing, we offer several waterproofing solutions such as basement drainage, TUFF-N-DRI waterproofing membranes, and sump pumps. Our basement drainage keeps your basement dry by collecting and draining groundwater before it enters the basement. It also helps reduce hydrostatic pressure and provide an escape route for water. A sump pump is installed in the basement floor to help collect and drain groundwater.
Our waterproofing membranes are specifically designed to protect your home against moisture. They contain an elastic membrane that resists hydrostatic pressure, condensation and leaks. Also, it bridges cracks and insulates homes. We can install this system on poured concrete and block wall foundations.
