What does foundation drainage mean?

Foundation drainage refers to any system designed to divert or direct water away from a foundation. Such drainage includes systems installed outside the edge of foundations as well as systems that are installed under foundations.

Why is foundation drainage important?

In many areas the ability of soils to support a foundation is affected by the amount of water in the soils. Too much water can cause soils to be muddy, and a foundation can sink. Too much water, and expansive soils will lift a house up. Good foundation drainage helps to keep excess water away from a foundation and helps to avoid problems.

How do I know if I need foundation drainage?

If after an hour of the rain stopping do you still have standing water within 10 feet of your foundation? If your answer is “Yes”, then you may need drainage improvements.

How can Extreme Foundation help?

Extreme Foundation will evaluate what foundation drainage solutions you currently have in place. We will then measure such things as the slope away from the foundation, as well as other (often hidden) signs that will help us to determine and then formulate a detailed foundation drainage solution plan for your home or business.
