Foundation drainage

Is a process of redirecting and removing water that has accumulated around the foundation of a building. When water accumulates near a foundation, it can cause damage to the structure, including cracking, settling, and shifting. By properly installing a drainage system, water is directed away from the foundation, preventing damage to the building’s foundation.

There are several types of foundation drainage systems that can be used, including surface drainage, subsurface drainage, and interior drainage. Surface drainage systems, such as French drains, are used to collect and redirect water that has accumulated on the surface, while subsurface drainage systems, such as footing drains, are used to collect and redirect water that has accumulated below the surface. Interior drainage systems, such as sump pumps, are used to collect and remove water that has entered the building.

Proper installation of foundation drainage systems is essential to ensure they are functioning correctly. A professional foundation repair contractor can evaluate the specific needs of your building and recommend the best type of foundation drainage system for your property.

In summary, foundation drainage is a process of redirecting and removing water that has accumulated around the foundation of a building.

Different types of foundation drainage systems are available, such as surface drainage, subsurface drainage, and interior drainage and it’s important to have a professional to evaluate and recommend the best type for your property.
