A foundation damaged by poor drainage can cause a home to shift, lean, and sink into the ground. Cracks can appear on the exterior and interior walls, and in the worst-case scenario, portions of the building could collapse. Some property owners may dismiss this as a purely aesthetic concern. However, over time the foundation damaged by poor drainage will slowly decrease property value and the quality of living in the home.
The Situation in Richardson
At Permatech Foundation Repair, we establish meaningful relationships with our clients by ensuring we do our jobs well so that they trust us to handle future repairs to their property. We were glad to hear an old client, a Richardson homeowner, who contacted us because he was having drainage problems on his property that led to damage to his outdoor landscaping and the exterior of his home.
Upon assessment, the team decided the perfect solution for this was to install a 110' drain line and eight 9" catch basins to solve their problem, with a pipe leading directly to the street.
Installation of Drainage Pipes and Catch Basin
The installed system can now protect our client’s home from water damage caused by poor drainage. A good drainage system like this minimizes the instances wherein groundwater rises and puts hydrostatic water pressure on the house's foundation, which could ultimately cause damaging cracks that lead to basement flooding.
On the other hand, the eight catch basins scattered around the low side of the property will also help the homeowner maintain a proper drainage system that has the ability to catch debris, preventing pipes downstream from becoming clogged (which leads to flooding). Their neighbor's property is slightly elevated, so when rain pours, the rainwater will go directly to the drainage systems we installed. We also tied in the downspouts to collect the water that falls off the roof.
This homeowner can say goodbye to the water damage that he could've possibly experienced without calling PermaTech!
