Why would you go with a foundation repair company to repair your drain, instead of choosing to call your regular plumber? Most of the times regular plumbers do not have the equipment to be able to dig deep enough to be able to work directly in your drain. That is why their services are usually limited to working on more superficial objects. Like sinks, faucets, and toilets. The reason that we work with drainage systems is that we have the equipment to be able to dig as far as we need to dig, and we also like doing it because we know that a damaged drain could bring a lot of trouble to other areas of your home that we work on!
Most of the times regular folks will have no idea that they have a drainage issue. The thing that kind of gives it away is that other appliances or things in their home start failing. Obviously, it would be great to be able to spot the problem before things start falling apart. The best thing that we can offer to take care of this, is to give us a call so that we can provide our free inspections and estimates. It does not cost you and it is a great preventive measure.
Working Below & Above Ground
A lot of times we are going to have to work simultaneously above and below ground to be able to spot and fix drainage problems. If you happen to have a leak in your drain that we are going to need to fix, then what we have to know is if that leak is what is causing the problem or if the leak is the result of the problem. Again, that is something that is easier said than done, but our crew is fully capable of providing the right service!
Drainage Issues Affecting Retaining Walls
People will be encouraged to build retaining walls to obviously keep the soil from eroding onto or even away from their property if that makes sense. They can also be a great way to make sure that the water that flows through and underneath your home has a clear path that it can follow. A lot of times drainage problems will spill an excessive amount of fluids in a direction in which they are not supposed to be headed. So, having your retaining wall torn down by a pile of waste is something that you need to make sure that you avoid!
Drains & Foundations
We have talked a little bit about this relationship and how drains and foundations may go hand and hand. This relationship is very visible in a lot of crawl spaces for example. You have an outlet of your water supply system within the same crawl space where you have piers and beams. If this space floods thanks to a drainage issue the excessive amount of water can affect your home’s foundation. We want to help you avoid all of that in just one call!
