Drainage Correction


Drainage Correction for the Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex

Drainage problems are certainly an issue in Texas, especially in the DFW area. Every year, some backyards turn into lakes, often causing expensive repairs to the pool and patio. 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
  • Sprinklers
  • Underground Springs
  • High Water Tables

For many Texas residents, drainage solutions usually mean attempting to build a French drain.

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.

Many Texas homeowners who try using a French drain as a drainage solution still find their homes flooded during the next rainfall. More comprehensive drainage solutions may be required.

Crawl Space Drainage System

In order to drain water from your crawl space floor and walls, drainage trenches and drainage piping may need to be installed around the perimeter of your crawl space. Power Jack will use a combination of crawl space drainage techniques to keep your crawl space dry, even during flooding and heavy rains.

Power Jack Drainage Solutions

Power Jack offers all types of drainage solutions to help prevent and repair these issues in order to alleviate any drainage-related foundation damages that devalue your home and flood your yard.

Some techniques include a simple re-grading of your lot to improve run-off as well as building more complicated area/grate drains and occasionally French drains. Our trained professional field representatives can make the right recommendation for your particular home after a complete no-cost inspection of the home.
