There are a number of reasons you experience water accumulation in your basement. Underground water and runoff from rain and snow adversely affect the structural integrity of foundations. Sometimes water will flow toward your foundation due to incorrect grading. Faulty grading that is not corrected can actually lead to foundation collapse. Roof runoff is another cause of damp basements. If rainwater is allowed to flow off a roof without gutters, the water can seep into the ground outside the foundation. This can lead to flooding and can damage the foundation. A foundation drain is an exterior perforated pipe buried in a trench lined with crushed stone. Rain water cascading off the roofline will be collected in the foundation drain pipe, drawing the water safely away from the foundation.
Whether your property needs to be graded, your gutter drains need to be extended, or an external foundation drain is needed, Kyle can do it all.
