You may require our drainage and house leveling services for a few reasons. Perhaps your home is on a plot of land that that has a tendency to accumulate water without adequate drainage. You may have experienced a flood in your home or underneath your property due to a plumbing malfunction or act of God. Either way, we can help. You may be wondering how drainage issues can impact your foundation. If water can erode mountains, you can only imagine what it can do to your foundation. A continuous flow of water or moisture will wreak havoc on your foundation, ultimately causing thousands of dollars of structural damage.
What is Drainage Correction?
Drainage correction is a term foundation professionals use to describe any treatment that impacts how water drains on your property. In some cases, the problem lies within the home. We may need to install a humidifier or sump pump in your crawlspace. In some cases, we install a French drain to direct water away from your foundation. This tactic prevents water from permeating the concrete slab. To help you manage ground water that may accumulate from rain, an entire sump pump system can be installed. The pump along with the basin and battery back up sump pump is more than enough to keep your crawlspace and foundation free from water build up.
Benefits of Drainage Correction
Proper drainage of water from your property not only helps to preserve the foundation of your home but it also prevents mosquito infestations. Summers in Texas can be brutal. The intense ultra violet rays combined with annoying mosquito swarms can make summer a nightmare. Some mosquitos carry the West Nile Virus. Protect your family from mosquito born diseases by getting a hold of your drainage issues. Once we are able to control the water flow on your property, your home is less likely to shift off its foundation. Believe it or not, drainage correction is great for your flower beds and vegetable gardens. Excess water has a tendency to flood and suffocate vegetation.
