Many foundation repair inspectors overlook this relatively easy method of repair and instead recommend dozens of steel piers or concrete piers. Proper drainage and drainage solutions are crucial to the foundation, resulting in foundation repair or house leveling. Let’s examine whether drainage can cause foundation repair. The soil beneath a concrete slab, or a pier and beam house, swells when moisture is present. The swelling causes upheaval in the foundation. Poor drainage causes uneven stress on the concrete slab, which leads to the concrete slab bending, even before it cracks. As the concrete slab bends, even before it breaks, damage can occur to masonry, Sheetrock, and tile flooring. We may provide drainage correction recommendations through our comprehensive site visits that are very cost-effective. LRE Foundation Repair Of Dunedin can offer drainage correction as a part of a foundation repair.

Picking LRE Foundation Repair Of Dunedin for drainage solutions is the most intelligent choice you can make.
Area Drainage Systems
Area drains are used to drain low areas where water collects and saturates the soil, causing uneven foundation movement. If low areas cannot be filled, LRE Foundation Repair Of Dunedin replaces drain heads at the lowest points where water stands and an underground pipe system carries the water away.
French Drain Systems
With most installations, a French drain moves water away from the house – and away from the foundation – so as to avoid causing water damage to the building. A properly installed drain surrounds the whole perimeter of a home at footing level and runs along all four walls as well. It is always wise to invest in a French drain to protect your foundation. They can be very costly to repair with foundation repairs!
Swales are gently sloping trenches used to drain large quantities of run-off water. If the property has enough slope, swales are simpler and less expensive alternatives to the area and French drains. It’s easy to test if you need a swale—wait until an hour after rainfall and see if you have standing water within 10 feet of your home’s foundation. This indicates a problem in that standing water can cause the soil to expand which, over time, can put pressure on your foundation and cause extensive damage that would be much more difficult and costly to repair.
