Chronically wet basement? areas of poor drainage?

wet basementA high water table, clay soil, underground streams, or a bad slope can all contribute to water headaches for the homeowner or business owner. Over time excess water can cause a variety of problems, from mold, mildew, and rot to subsurface erosion and pavement failure of driveways and parking lots.

Proper excavation techniques and the installation of adequate drainage systems alleviates water headaches. A French drain, also known as a perimeter drain, helps prevent damage to a building's foundation by redirecting groundwater away from the foundation.

An inadequate slope or drainage swale can also contribute to water problems on the property. Reconstructing the slope or swale to provide proper drainage during a worst-case scenario may help avoid further problems.
