Foundation Protection Through Drainage Solutions

Due to the terrain of coastal living, we’re often contacted when a homeowner or business identifies a problem with standing water on their property. That problem is taken even a step further when standing water tends to pool near or around the foundation of a home or business.

In this particular case, Bob was experiencing these drainage issues around his property and reached out to our Drainage Department for solutions. Our JB Lawn Sprinklers Drainage Technicians evaluated the issues, then worked with Bob and to develop a plan.

The finished product has been highly effective and was complimented on the effects and efficiency by Bob. We wanted to document our findings and process in this blog to make others aware of their options when it comes to drainage solutions. 

Developing A Comprehensive Drainage Solution

Planning Makes Perfect

The first thing we do when it comes time for a drainage consultation is to evaluate the property as it currently stands. From there, we ask the homeowner or business owner to point out where they’re experiencing the most trouble. Then, we examine the property to look for improperly sloped areas and areas of concern.

Using our drainage design background and certifications, we map out a plan that will provide solutions for the homeowner, business owner, or HOA. 

Lastly, we sit down with the customer to verbally and visually explain our vision through diagrams and experience.

How Our Drainage Technicians Helped Bob’s Property

Excessive amounts of water against the foundation of a home can have a negative impact on the structural integrity of the foundation.

During our observation of Bob’s property, we determined they needed additional means of moving stormwater, especially during large storms, to help prevent water from pooling around the foundation of his home.

To combat these challenges, our JB Lawn Sprinklers Drainage Solutions Team installed a new PVC drainage system through the property. Our team was able to work with the Town of Kure Beach and had them install a new drop inlet at the street to accommodate the new drainage system. This drainage system we installed was then connected to the drop inlet installed at the front of the property. This new installation has done wonders for Bob and he’s noticed a huge difference in the feel of his property. This has certainly given him peace of mind about the foundation of his home.
