Arlington Foundation Drainage Services
Prevent Water Damage; Call G. L. Hunt Foundation Repair
North Texas is notorious for soil that contains heavy concentrations of clay. Clay has poor water absorption qualities, and that means it can create hydrostatic pressure on your foundation when the water that falls on the soil has nowhere to go. This pressure can cause all kinds of issues for your foundation, including cracking, shifting, bowing, and other issues that can be disastrous if not handled correctly. If your property doesn’t have proper drainage around your foundation, the problem can get even worse, as your foundation will quickly become waterlogged thanks to water runoff or uncontrolled roof water.
At G. L. Hunt Foundation Repair, we proudly offer Arlington foundation drainage services that protect your property by keeping the foundation beneath from having to absorb too much water. With proper drainage, the excess water will be directed away from your foundation and out to storm drains or other infrastructure that can handle it properly. All of our installations are held to high standards to ensure proper function, maximum protection, and superior value no matter the size or scope of your project. From simple single drains to complex networks with multiple drain locations, count on us to make sure everything is done right and your home remains safe from even the most torrential downpours.
The team at G. L. Hunt Foundation Repair is committed to keeping your foundation integrity intact! Learn more about protecting your home with a foundation drainage system by calling (817) 438-2052 today.
Types of Foundation Drainage
Foundation drainage is an important part of your property but it is also far simpler than you might think as well. Anything that collects water and directs it away from your home is a type of foundation drainage, and not all of these features are specifically for drainage or even buried out of sight. In most cases, the installation of one of these drains is fairly simple and can be completed in roughly a day or two.
We can help with the installation of all of the following:
- Surface drains
- Grate drains
- Channel drains
- Subsurface French drains
- Seamless gutters or downspouts
Signs Your Foundation Drainage is Inadequate
Is the drainage on your property adequate? Believe it or not, drainage is actually a shortcoming for many properties found throughout the DFW area. With soil that is so resistant to water absorption and the potential for sudden and intense rainfall, many properties are ill-equipped to handle a sudden deluge of water that might threaten their foundation or outdoor patio.
You might need additional foundation drainage if any of the following are true:
- Any portion of your property slopes toward your home’s foundation
- Water consistently pools up in certain areas of your property
- You frequently find puddles around your foundation after heavy rains or running your sprinklers
- You are noticing cracks in your patio where it meets your lawn or other landscaping
If you want to prevent serious damage to your foundation, increasing drainage and water handling capacity is something you should consider doing as soon as possible.
