Drainage problems are certainly an issue in Texas, especially in the DFW area. As Drainage Contractors, we have seen it all. Our North Texas clay soils can’t absorb water near as quick as sandy soil can and once clay particles are completely saturated, the remaining water pools and creates drainage issues. Every year, some backyards turn into lakes, often causing expensive repairs to the pool, patio and even foundations. Extended water saturation without proper drainage can hurt your home’s foundation and substantially devalue your house if you ever decide to sell it.
Below are five symptoms that make a home’s landscape drainage problems apparent:
- Heavy Rain
- Supersaturated Soil
- Underground Springs
- High Water Tables
For many Texas residents, drainage solutions usually mean attempting to build a French drain.
A French drain, also known as a weeping tile, trench drain, filter drain, blind drain, rock drain, or sub-surface drain, consists of gravel or a rock bottomed ditch to redirect any surface water away from a foundation. Installing a French Drain can be tricky. That’s where our decades of experience with Clogged Drainage issues helps.
Many Texas homeowners who try using a French drain as a Yard Drainage solution still find their homes flooded during the next rainfall. More comprehensive Water Drainage solutions may be required.
