Yard Drainage Services Around Columbus Ohio
Our experts at WALLFORCE Foundation Support Systems have been helping homeowners around Ohio protect their home from sustaining water damage for years. Without properly planned and installed yard drainage systems water can easily build up in the soil around the foundation of your home. This water build up will lead to what we in the industry call hydrostatic pressure, or the pressure imparted on your foundation's walls due to the density and weight of water permeated soil. This pressure can cause a variety of problems in the foundation of your home such as wall cracks and bowed walls. It can also lead to soil erosion underneath the foundation slab causing floor cracks as well. It is important to contact a professional if you notice large puddles of water or any signs of foundation damage. Our experts have years of experience installing yard drainage systems for homeowners who are experiencing flooded yards and foundation issues.

What Yard Drainage Systems Do We Install
While there are a variety of methods and thoughts out there on how to properly protect your home from water damage we have selected these. With years of testing and first-hand knowledge, we have found that the installation of downspout extensions or french drains is an effective and safe way to protect your home. Take a look below at how each system works to protect your home and your family.
Downspout extensions work exactly how they sound. When it rains your gutters primary job is to redirect the flow of water away from your home. However, with most gutter systems only a mall angle is attached to the bottom of the downspout directing water away from your home. The issue this causes is when that downspout pours directly into the dirt around your home. This dirt will eventually erode away creating a pocket where water can pool around the exterior of your home. By installing a downspout extension water can be safely directed further away from the exterior of your home preventing groundwater buildup from occurring in the soil around your foundation.
A french drain system typically consists of a trench filled with gravel or rock containing a perforated pipe that redirects surface and ground water away from an area. It works by taking on water from topsoil and the surrounding ground and diverting it away from the home. These systems are typically used to prevent ground and surface water from penetrating or damaging your foundations. This system is proven to keep water and hydrostatic pressure from building up agains your foundation stopping bowed walls and cracks from appearing.
