Preventing Property Damage from Poor Drainage

Last updated 5 years ago

Home foundations are designed to withstand extreme pressure and resist erosion, but poor drainage can slowly erode the strongest parts of a foundation and compromise the underlying soil. This short video clip covers some simple tips for preventing foundation damage from poor drainage.

Not only can poor drainage lead to pools of water which attract insects, but they can also penetrate soil and tiny foundation cracks and cause major long-term damage. Preventing this is as simple keeping your gutters and downspouts free of debris and applying protective sealant to the driveway and patios.

To keep your home safe and protect its resale value, hire a foundation specialist from Structured Foundation Repairs, Inc. to inspect signs of foundation damage and drainage problems. To schedule service for your home or business in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, call (972) 484-1200 today.
