Foundation Drain Installation Merrifield
Groundwater can have a deteriorating effect on your home’s foundation over time, whether it be from your home being built on a high water table or heavy rains and floods seeping into the soil and down to the foundation. However, water damage to your foundation can be prevented by installing a foundation drain installation. Much like gutters for your roof, foundation drains direct excess water away from the foundation of your home.
This water often comes from within the ground during heavy rainfall, rising up from the soil beneath your house through hydrostatic pressure. Without proper drainage and redirection, that water will reach your foundation, eventually resulting in your basement flooding. It can also lead to your foundation growing cracks, and a much higher likelihood of further water damage to your home.
