Native Kansas Citians are well aware of the fickle nature of weather in the area. From the downpours of spring, to the droughts of summer – and everything in between – KC weather plays havoc on property. From flooded lawns (where constant downpours have drowned out new grass year after year), to cracked soil from dry weather that allows a sudden downpour to follow the deep soil cracks straight to foundations, causing flooded basements, mold and mildew damage in and outside homes.
More serious drainage issues occur during the many flash-flooding bouts that strike KC – most always when least expected – bringing inches upon inches of rainfall onto a vulnerably low property. With no place for rainwater to go but where gravity beckons, serious property damage is almost certain for the lowling property on the block.
