Excess water near your foundation can cause the structure to move due to shrinking and swelling of the existing soils (especially clay soils), causing foundation damage with tell-tale cracks in your ceilings and walls and worse.
The solution? A dual underground drainage system typically called a “French Drain” may be your answer. It is designed to catch water from gutters and downspouts in one drain pipe, and to catch surface and excess lateral, subterranean ground water in a second pipe, so your foundation is not damaged by either of these water collections. Then it uses gravity to carry the excess groundwater from around your building’s foundation to an acceptable permeable area.
They are highly customizable and used for both remedial drainage in a foundation repair project and as a prevention in new construction. Most important of all, they can be the simple key to saving your foundation’s integrity and saving you many thousands of dollars!
