With Drainage Issues, A One Size Fits All Approach Won’t Do
When it comes to drainage issues, a one size fits all approach will rarely work. Each drainage problem is unique. Problems will vary based on things like property elevation, water table levels, location, and even time of year. Due to the variety of drainage issues, it is always advisable to contact a professional service to determine the unique nature of your drainage problem and decide upon the best course of action. This course of action will be based on your unique circumstances, which is why there is no such thing as a one size fits all approach when it comes to drainage issues.
Just as each drainage problem is different, it is also true that no two budgets are exactly alike. At AA Action Waterproofing we always take your budget into account and we work very hard to propose the most affordable and effective solution possible for your particular drainage issue. Following is a brief overview of some common drainage improvement solutions. Depending upon the extent of your drainage problem, one or more of these solutions may be advisable to correct the issue and prevent costly repairs in the future.
- Contours, culverts, and swells: These drainage solutions work by diverting water away from your home or office and off of the property. Contours, drainage culverts, and swells can all provide proper drainage for your home or office.
- French drains: A French drain, also referred to as a “blind drain,” is a solution that is best suited for basement drainage problems, especially when there are existing moisture issues that need to be corrected, such as dampness, flooding, or standing water.
- Sump pumps: A sump pump is a device that is used to correct basement and foundation drainage issues. A sump pump is a great solution for both home and business settings as the device lends itself to a variety of structures. A sump pump, which protects the structural integrity of the building, is a very common drainage solution.
- Surface drains: A surface drain is a simple and affordable solution that addresses a variety of different drainage issues.
Any of the above-listed drainage solutions can provide long-term protection against potential water damage. None of these solutions should be attempted by anyone who is not a skilled drainage repair professional. If you suspect that you may have a drainage problem, contact AA Action Waterproofing to determine which long-term solution will best protect your property investment.
