Determining The Best Drainage Solutions For Your Home
Every home is different, with its own set of problems and advantages. When it comes to basement drainage solutions, every home has its own set of needs and requirements. If you suspect that you may have a drainage problem in your basement, don’t try to diagnose or correct the problem on your own. Properly identifying and eliminating basement drainage issues takes a level of experience and expertise that only a professional will possess. For this reason alone, it is best to hire a professional service to combat your home’s drainage issues and offer you the most effective long-term basement drainage solutions. In the end, trying to go it alone or DIY your basement drainage solutions will only result in hefty repair costs down the road.
In order to propose the best drainage solution for your unique situation, the drainage expert pros you select must first identify the source of the problem. Of course, your budget is another important factor in your personalized drainage solution plan. A conscientious drainage professional will not offer you a solution that s/he knows to be well outside the limits of your proposed budget. At AA Action Waterproofing, we identify the source of your basement drainage problem, taking into account your property’s unique location and situation, and then work within your budget to come up with the most effective long-term solution.
Some common, highly-effective drainage solutions that we may offer you based on your unique circumstances include:
- Swells, contours, and drainage culverts: These often-used solutions work by diverting water away from your home and directing it away from your property for an effective long-term solution to your drainage problem.
- French drains: A French drain is basically a little trench that is excavated along the inside of your basement walls to correct drainage problems. An effective solution for a variety of drainage problems, a French drain is affordable, easy-to-install, and blends seamlessly with the rest of your basement décor.
- Sump pumps: These hard-working drainage devices pump water away in order to protect the structural integrity of your home. Often installed in conjunction with a French drain, a sump pump can help to correct a variety of basement and foundation drainage issues.
