Soggy yard? Wet basement? Excessive moisture, mold, water?
Clogged drainage pipe can wreak havoc on your yard and foundation. An issue that needs to be addressed, protecting your major investment.
Your house exerts quite a load on its foundation and the soil underneath your foundation may be inadequate.
Improperly draining downspouts create standing water saturating the soil right next to your foundation.
When the soil underneath your home or commercial property is altered, primarily from moisture changes, it shrinks or expands and becomes less stable. This moisture change causes pressure from outside your foundation walls from expansive soil saturated with water.
Exterior drain pipe moves water and moisture away from your house and foundation.
Part or all of your foundation may start to sink down which in turn creates strain on other parts of the property to create a variety of issues. Ignoring the issue long enough can lead to eventual foundation wall collapse.
Saturated soil can exert pressure your walls were not designed to withstand....causing bowing in at the top or bottom of the foundation walls, as well as water leaking into the building.
Plumbing/Sewer leaks - A plumbing or sewer leak underneath a slab of concrete will move the soil and create a void, or if the leak continues, cause presssure on the slab from swelling.
Either way, the integrity of your foundation will be compromised.
