Driveway Grates | Simone TV: Episode 22
In this episode, Daniel explains what you can do to protect your garage and home from storm-water. This episode is all about how Driveway Grates work to protect your home.
Remember a few sites visits ago, we came here to pour the driveway. Now, you might have seen this grate here come all the way down going along through there. The reason for this driveway grate is the slope. Can you see the slope of the driveway but it actually falls all the way back down into the house? You have to make sure that the water has somewhere to go. The grate runs all the way in front of the garage door because we do not want any water traveling back inside the house.
I know a lot of builders may not do the driveway for you and you may do your driveway after hand over. If you are doing your own driveway you may want to look over or even ask your builder to build a few drainage points. These will be hooked up for later if you’re doing your own driveway. You definitely do not want any water coming down and going into your house. I just get down here what is happen obviously the driveway falls here and actually dips this slightly just back down that way. It actually falls a little bit like a dish here so the water can actually collect in here and not go inside your house.
Alright guys, I’d like to know in the comments below what you did in your scenario. There are a few different options that you can actually do. Finally, I’d like to know if this tip helped you.
In conclusion, if you know anyone that could actually do their driveway tag them and share this with them. Thank for watching.
