House border

House border

House border

Dear sirs,

The condition of house that we live in has weakened as the structure surrounding it has cracked and weakened in many places.
(I mean drainage of house water fall area. )

It was some 15 yrs old construction and I want to make it stronger. Is removing the old one and making the new with stone chips a better idea? I have heard that with stone chips p, it is stronger.

Please suggest.

RE: House border

Sorry, but your post makes no sense. Please expand on your problem, but please keep in mind this site is not a free engineering advice site for non-engineers

RE: House border

Stone chips is not going to help much. Suggest you install some type of rain gutter and direct the gutter downspouts away from the house. Grade the ground around the house away from the house.

Adding a couple of images to your post will be helpful.
