French Drain Installation
Contractor in West Chester, PA
Are you experiencing leaking in your home? You probably need for it to be waterproofed, like any older West Chester houses. But what exactly does that mean? When your house was built, a big hole was dug out in order to build the foundation below ground level. The soil being disturbed or removed is called “hard pan”. This soil had been there for thousands or even millions of years and was naturally compacted.
After the footers, foundation walls and concrete floor are constructed the basement is then backfilled using the same soil. The soil filled back is now called “soft pan”. This soft pan soil around the house allows moisture or water to flow under and around the foundation slab and walls more easily. This is called a “false water table”. The false water table is now allowing water to fill up around the basement causing what is called hydrostatic pressure until eventually the masonry fails and water starts leaking into the basement.
We Provide You The Best Waterproof Solutions
There are two ways to waterproof your house, with the first and most common way being from the inside using a french drain (hydrostatic pressure relief system). This way is usually more affordable than doing it from the outside, so it is often preferable. Waterproof One is already known around West Chester for basement waterproofing, and we actually specialize in french drain installation as well. In fact, we have been successfully installing french drains for customers since before 1990!
