Many homes need a drainage system. If your building doesn’t have adequate drainage, it can result in over-accumulation of water close to your foundation. This can put continual pressure on your foundation, and eventually cause it to heave, or shift upward. A proper drainage system will prevent this from happening by directing water away from your building. Generally, a simple surface drainage system consists of a flexible pipe and various area drains. If the ground around your building does not slope enough so that the water naturally drains, you may need a sump pump in order to ensure that your drainage system works properly.
