We do new construction and site remediation for drainage control. We are familiar with all types of property drainage issues, and can offer realistic and practical solutions to avoid the serious consequences that poor drainage can cause.
Drainage issues usually involve the accumulation of standing or ponding water on the property. It can also involve the over-saturation of the soil. Drainage problems can result from any number of factors. The natural slope a homeowner’s property (or even the adjacent property) in certain areas can cause rain water and runoff to accumulate in certain sections, resulting in problems with drainage. At All Seasons Earthworks we can sculpt the property for proper run-off. If the property cannot be sculpted to address run off, we can install any one of french drains, curtain drains, or footing drains.
Sometimes, what you don’t see can hurt you. Hidden drainage issues are a perfect example of that. In Edmonds, drainage issues account for a large percentage of problems with basement leakage and foundational erosion. At All Seasons Earthworks, we are experts in detecting and resolving drainage issues that can be effecting the structural integrity of your home. When it comes to drainage and drainage systems, Edmonds residents have trusted our expertise for over 15 years!
Drainage issues affecting your home’s foundation and structure can be traced to a number of different causes. One of the most common causes stems from the improper or incomplete compaction of the soil when the foundation is initially laid. Often, if a grading contractor does not adequately compact the soil, the soil will settle over time, resulting in differential settling—basically, an uneven settling of the home’s foundation. This will result in cracks, leakage, and drainage problems impacting the foundation of the house.
In other instances, well-meaning landscapers fail to grade the property around the house properly, or inadvertently put plants and shrubs too close to the walls and foundation of the home. Both of these situations can cause problems with drainage. Edmonds homeowners may notice pooling or ponding of water around the outside walls of their home. They may notice a greater amount of runoff near the exterior of their home, in one area or another. Sometimes, the drainage issues are more subtle, and no collection of water is initially apparent, but symptoms start to appear. Homeowners may notice water seepage in their crawlspace or basement. They might also notice a damp, musty smell. Mold or mildew can become an issue and can start to pose a serious health threat. Cracks may appear along the walls from the differential settling of the foundation, and over time, the structural integrity of the home could be at risk.
