Drainage Issues? Trust the Experts!
Poor drainage can destroy your home! It is very important that water can flow away from your structure. If storm water is allowed to pool near your foundation, you are asking for a wet basement and the possibility of a basement wall collapse.
Trotter Company installs all types of drainage:
We can install all sizes of drains from 4 inches to 48 inches in diameter.
For permanent solutions from qualified drainage repair contractors, contact Trotter Company. We offer drainage repair quotes in Georgia, including areas like Marietta, Atlanta, Decatur, and nearby.
Water In Basement
Trotter has solutions.
- Downspout Drains
- Channel Drains
- Catch Basins
- Gravity Drains
- Concrete Flumes
- Backfill Restoration
- Backfill on Stud Walls
These drains come in various sizes from two inches to twelve inches and even larger.
The area around the catch basin must be contoured to direct the water into the catch basin.
Many times we are able to install the smaller drains and customers can’t tell that we worked in their yard! We do very neat work.
If you have thick sod, we can usually cut the sod and replace it, and you will never know we were there, other than now the water runs away from your home rather than toward it.
Many times we will configure the flumes to work as a sidewalk and most people never realize they are part of the storm water drainage system.
As time passes, this soil settles and can trap water against your basement walls. First it may lead to wet basements. Then, the basement walls gradually develop long horizontal cracks, and if ignored, eventually the walls collapse. Backfill settlement is the number one cause of wet basements and caved-in basement walls.
Warning: basement walls CAN collapse!
Also, many times the area will continue to be a problem due to seepage from behind the veneer (brick, stucco, stone, etc.) from other areas. In our experience, a much better solution is to lower the grade in the problem area and direct the water away from the foundation.
In some rare cases, due to the neighboring yard’s elevation, the stud wall must be replaced with a masonry wall and then the exterior grade can be safely raised.
