Completed Drain with Pavers

Perimeter Drain Installation In Progress

Drainage systems are installed to allow moisture that collects below slabs or structural floors to be removed from these areas prior to causing structural related problems. In many instances the drain originally installed in the structure is inadequate or was not properly installed. Poor drainage conditions around a structure can result in water or moisture problems inside a structure. The result of an improper drainage system can be:

  • Flooded basement
  • Crawlspace area has standing water below a structural floor
  • Mold growth below floor or on walls
  • Wall cracks and moisture wicking through the wall
  • Routine or continuous running of sump pump. High amount of discharge from pump.
