How Drainage Systems Prevent Foundation Issues
Water pooling in your lawn is more than just an eyesore. It is actually important for proper drainage. If you have water that isn’t draining away from your home, it could pool around your foundation. This creates thousands of pounds of pressure against your foundation walls, imperiling the entirety of your home’s structure. When you notice water pooling on your property, contact the Dallas drainage systems experts from G.L. Hunt Foundation Repair for a solution.
Our Different Types of Drainage Systems in Dallas
Listed below are the types of Dallas yard drainage systems and foundation irrigation systems that can help prevent further damage to your home's foundation.
Surface Drainage Systems
Surface Drain - uses a 9”x9” or 12”x12” drain connected to a flexible PVC pipe to channel the water away from the home.
Subsurface Drainage Systems
French drains - one of the most common Dallas drainage systems. French drains are gravel-covered trenches that redirect water to a pipe located at the bottom.
Collection Boxes - These 12”x12” boxes rest just below the ground. They trap water and move it away from the home.
Popup Valve - This spring-loaded cap opens or closes depending on the flow of water. This prevents pools of water from accumulating.
Slope Drainage Systems
Landscape Grading - the grade of a landscape refers to its inclination in regards to a horizontal plain. A positive grade slopes away from your foundation.
Downspouts & Gutter Installation
Gutter & Downspout installation - a great way to prevent water from accumulating near your foundation.
Additional Drainage Systems & Products
Sump Pump - is a pump that is designed to automatically remove water that has pooled around or below a foundation.
Combo Drain - the combination of a French and surface drain to carry away water.
Solid Drain - utilizes a corrugated pipe with a catch basin affixed. These drains can move larger quantities of water than other systems.
Automated Foundation Irrigation System - helps prevent the problem of inconsistent moisture near your foundation. These pipes use timers to consistently maintain the level of moisture around your home’s foundation.
