Making new slope from house


Hurricane Irma flooded my yard. I live on a lake and it was bad but never made it in 'my house'...problem is my porch drops down about 5 inches from the door and another 8 inches until you hit the ground. There is NO SLOPE the first 20 feet out....almost the same in the front.

Can I just add concrete on top of the current porch and put lots of fill dirt around the porch and walls of the house (it's solid brick walls). Currently, the water almost flows into walls after a certain point.

Re: Making new slope from house


In Tulsa and Shreveport, I've seen some properties with a concrete wall/fence
around them.... 2 feet tall maybe.....guess it works better than sandbags.
