Water control, french drains, waterproofing, ridding your property of unwanted water around your house, under your house, and getting in your house.

“Our house was built in the middle of a hill, so every time it rained, water would run through our garage and basement. We could not keep it dry, and everything downstairs had that dank, moldy, mildew smell, basically making all that space useless… not to mention the potential, and inevitable damage to our foundation. Bedrock came out to inspect and implemented a creative, custom solution to our water problem, saving us $$thousands over the competition, which involved waterproofing and french drains. They corrected our problem immediately, and we couldn’t be more pleased with their professionalism, and courtesy. I would not hesitate to recommend Bedrock for all your foundation repair and drainage correction needs!”

-Shelley & Alan Martin, Denison, TX

For water standing around the house, water getting under the house, and water getting in the house, REMEMBER…
If you haven’t fixed the drainage, you haven’t fixed the foundation.

Why?
Water is the source of foundation settlement, foundation upheaval, the rotting of wood in the house, mold problems, mildew, and creates a very unhealthy condition in and around your home.

You must reach the source of the water and redirect, capture, and relocate it. The source of the water, really, is in the clouds, but since we cannot control the weather, we must capture the water at some point before it reaches your home.

There are 3 main sources of water penetration at the home:
surface drainage, subsurface drainage, and poor cross-ventilation.

Subsurface drainage problems involve:

  • a high water table

  • underground springs

  • hydrostatic pressure

Almost all subsurface drainage correction involves the installation of a FRENCH DRAIN.

Engineers refer to a french drain as “lowering the water table”.
Essentially, a french drain is no more than a ditch full of rocks. The surrounding soil around the ditch is full of moisture, and the moisture falls into the ditch full of rocks. At the bottom of the ditch is usually a pipe that will discharge the collected water downhill, or to a pump if there IS nothing downhill to discharge the moisture. As water ‘percolates’ into the ditch, it lowers the water table.

A Bedrock drainage correction expert knows how to locate the ditch, how deep the ditch should be, and how large the ditch should be to effective and successfully collect the moisture.
However, one must remember that even though drainage corrections have been implemented to handle moisture from most situations, even the best drainage correction plan does not usually stop water from a major flood or extreme conditions.

If extreme conditions are evident at the time of the Bedrock inspection, then extreme measures can be taken to eliminate the problems, but remember that extreme measures also involve extreme costs.

To get to the source of the subsurface water, one must also look at the adjacent SURFACE DRAINAGE. All subsurface drainage corrections must correct any surface drainage defects that might be evident.

SURFACE DRAINAGE CORRECTIONS may involve many different solutions. Some of these are:

  • installing surface drains and piping,

  • waterproofing,

  • grading,

  • installing soil,

  • installing a drainage canal,

  • roof gutters,

  • downspouts, and downspout extensions

  • removing obstructions to drainage.

All of the above drainage corrections may involve the same property, including subsurface drainage corrections. One must remember that not all drainage problems are solved with one drainage solution.

CROSS-VENTILATION

The underneath of a house should be properly ventilated to prevent the buildup of moisture on the wood members. Just as condensation can build up on a car windshield, with changing temperatures and changing humidity, condensation can build up on the wood members under a house, and eventually destroy it.

The moisture buildup can also create mold and mildew under the house, eventually creating a musty smell inside the home and an unhealthy living condition. The solution is proper ventilation under the home, that essentially ‘blow dries’ the structure under the house.

Sometimes crossvents can be installed to insure a good cross flow of air across the substructure. If obstructions do not permit the installation of crossvents, then a properly designed forced air system can be installed. In most cases, a good engineer familiar with these techniques can be employed to design the system. (see Bedrock Engineering, LLC here.)

Also remember, that good ventilation is needed in the attic of a home, and also inside the home. If a home is air tight, and receives little fresh air, it is an environment that will nurture molds and mildew. That ‘musty smell’ inside many homes is full of bacteria and viruses that can be eliminated greatly with just a little fresh air!!!
