Importance of Proper Drainage – Foundation Repair Tip Of The Day #30

Did you know that adequate and proper drainage can often helps to mitigate foundation settlement issues and incompetent soils?

In today’s #FoundationRepair #TipOfTheDay Justin discusses how adequate drainage could have prevented our team from having to come out to install 16 push piers to lift and stabilize this 3200 sq/ft garage in De Luz, CA. This garage had settled over 4.6 inches in some areas! Proper drainage reroutes water away from the foundation and prevents water from reaching the soils that support the foundation. With the presence of clay, the soils supporting this garage are contracting and expanding as the moisture levels fluctuate.

We hydraulically drove the steel push piers to competent, load-bearing stratum to ensure that this homeowner would never have to worry about his garage’s foundation settling in the future.
