Our Methods of Drainage Correction
Drains, Gutters, and Sump Pumps
The more common and cost effective method of removing excessive surface and subsurface migratory water is done mechanically. Our team does this by re-grading portions of the existing soil, cutting a swale, and redirecting the run off water. Secondary solutions can include gutters, surface Drains and French Drains. Sump Pumps can be installed for those situations that will not allow natural discharge of captured water.
Equally important to drainage correction is maintaining an adequate moisture level within the clay based soils. In Central Texas and San Antonio it’s common for the surrounding soil to be made up of expansive varieties of clay. Unfortunately, clay is affected by drought which can cause shrinkage within the soil. In some cases the installation of Dripline Irrigation can help control the seasonal soil volumetric changes, thus reducing the cosmetic effects it may cause within the superstructure.
Our team, when on site, can discuss and help resolve many of your drainage and moisture control systems and recommend the best approach for your particular needs.
