Woodland Hill, CA (PRWEB) September 11, 2013
The saying when it rains it pours has never been more true as regions across the country, from the Southeast to the Pacific, have experienced an increase in drainage complications from the extreme precipitation and heavy flooding that has characterized 2013. In a recent consumer study, NDS, Inc., the leader and innovator in residential storm water drainage systems, found that of the 88 percent of homeowners that are responsible for maintaining their yard, 40 percent have had a drainage problem. To help meet homeowners’ needs and decrease damaging drainage issues, NDS has launched a new microsite – http://www.ndspro.com/home-drainage-systems/ – that offers comprehensive, DIY drainage systems that serve as solutions to help homeowners easily diagnose and overcome a variety of drainage problems.
The Do-It-Yourself Drainage Solution
Designed to showcase real-life applications, NDS’ new microsite displays a clickable house and yard that features eight of the most common drainage problems: water on the patio or pool deck, downspout runoff, water on the driveway, water in the basement or crawl space, water in the planter area, water on the walkway, water in the yard and neighbor runoff. Homeowners can scroll over and select their problem, learn more about the causes and consequences and then locate the NDS drainage system and products necessary for the fix.
Because only 35 percent of homeowners with drainage problems make an attempt to fix them, the NDS microsite also lays out the potential challenges homeowners might face if they ignore the problem, which include property damage, a decline in aesthetics and usability and even health concerns.
After the homeowner chooses their drainage issue, NDS offers possible product solutions that range from high capacity, to medium and low capacity and is based on the amount of precipitation in their area. Each solution outlines a complete drainage system and includes information on drainage effectiveness, material cost and physical labor required, so homeowners can make an informed decision on potential next steps. Installation instructions are included and while the NDS product solutions are easily manageable as a DIY project, the microsite also offers resources to assist in locating qualified contractors through the various NDS product distributors across the country. The new microsite also provides informative articles and videos illustrating the best plan for their needs.
“Our research shows that many homeowners are not effectively solving their drainage problems, or are using a quick fix that eventually leads to more costly damage,” said Sharon Vessels, director of marketing at NDS. “NDS created this new microsite to make drainage issues approachable. We create the products necessary to rebuild and restore, and want to provide homeowners with an easy, DIY support system to get the job done right the first time.”
