If you have foundation water damage, we highly recommend that you take steps to protect your Dallas Fort Worth property. The best way to do that is by installing a yard drainage system. It’s quite common to discover foundation damage on concrete slabs or pier and beam houses due to flooding in the DFW area. That’s because the metroplex can get heavy rain. Even moderatey heavy rain and 2-3” of precipitation over a few days can become a problem. Whether you’re worried about relatively small amounts of moisture or the possibility of your house flooding, call us. We’ll evaluate your residential or commercial structure right away.
About Yard Drainage Systems And Averting Foundation Water Damage:
It’s wise to install them on your Dallas, Fort Worth property because they direct surface and ground water away from low areas in your lawn. When foundations are exposed to excessive amounts of moisture, they erode and become uneven. What’s more, the harmful effects of water can cause cracks in slab foundations and actually push them upwards. Homeowners with pier and beam foundations will find that moist crawlspaces eventually develop wood rot and mildew. That’s why you’ll want to stop drainage problems as soon as possible. Whether you have 4-5” inches of standing water in your yard, or soggy soil around your house foundation, take action. Remember: It costs more to repair a foundation than it does to install a yard drainage system. By being proactive, you can save yourself money and trouble.
