Exterior Drainage Solutions

AN OUNCE OF PREVENTION IS A POUND OF CURE!

Flooding, underground water, and inclement weather can negatively affect your exterior foundation, regardless whether you have a brick, poured concrete, stone or cinder block home with or without window wells. Ground water gets trapped along the perimeter of the house, packs into your soil and even the "clay bowl" that your home's foundation sits on. There are effective measures to take to minimize exterior erosion, and these include:

  • Speedy drain/sub soil drainage installation
  • External sump pump with discharge line to daylight
  • River rock, gravel & stone trenching options
  • Diversion through trenching, and PVC discharge either connected to an internal or external pump

See below an example of a speedy drain solution connected to an internal pump protecting the entire side of a home and adjacent window wells.
