Drainage System Plano
In most cases, a homebuilder will try to do what they can to help you avoid any type of drainage problems. Unfortunately, many homeowners are spending a considerable amount on other things and rarely on actually addressing drainage problems like slope issues. The home may be built in a way that makes it impossible for water to drain away from your house. If this is the problem, your problem will be intensified when you have a problem with water flowing off of your roof next to your home foundation. The unfortunate thing is that this problem has been there from the beginning. Yes, when your house was built, you likely already had a drainage problem that wasn't detected until now. There are tons of problems that can occur when you have a problem with your drainage system.
Foundation Drainage Problems
When you have a problem with your drainage system, you will inevitably experience problems with your foundation. The clay soils around your property will become saturated with excess water. The soil will start to expand and this is what will eventually cause the noticeable cracks and lifted concrete in your foundation. You will start to notice a problem with your doors and windows due to upheaval. A bad drainage system can cause problems with the landscaping that you have invested your hard earned money in. The upheaval caused by drainage problems will cause cracks in your interior and exterior walls, thus compromising the properties foundation. Excess water that seeps into exterior weep holes can begin to create mold in your home. This is something that can start slowly and grow very rapidly if the drainage system isn't fixed.
Landscapers and Your Drainage System
We hate to be the ones to tell you that landscapers could be the reason that you are experiencing a problem with your drainage system. Unfortunately, they do not receive the necessary training that teaches them about the distance that they should plant soil and plants. When they install your plants, they often place them too close to your homes foundation and these plants and soil have water that is in the path of your foundation. This is the water that will usually get into your weep holes. You should carefully examine your home's foundation from time to time to see if it slopes toward your home's foundation. If there is a problem with water getting into your weep holes, it is usually due to a landscaping problem.
