Exterior Drains in Chester VA

Do you have standing water on your Property?

Are you tired of seeing standing water in your yard or having a muddy property overall? It can be so inconvenient to have a muddy yard especially when you have kids or pets that want to play outside or even when cutting the grass. 

There can be many contributions to accumulation of water on a property including:

  • Downspouts draining water onto property
  • High water table
  • Condensation and sump pump discharge pipes
  • Low spots and uneven properties 
  • Natural underground springs 
  • Improper grading and very flat properties with poor drainage 

Every property is different and takes a very thorough evaluation to identify exactly where a drainage solution is needed. Whether it is a solution with french drains, channel trench drains, catch basins, regrading, or sump pumps, we will let you know why your property is having water issues and how they need to be addressed to have a dry and usable yard again.

Is An Exterior Drain Going To Help?

There’s no doubt that exterior drains are an important part of your home. They help keep water away from the foundation and prevent flooding. An exterior drain is a system of pipes that carries water away from your home’s foundation. The system includes a series of perforated pipes that are buried around the perimeter of your home. These pipes are connected to the main drainage pipe, which runs to a lower point on your property. Water enters the perforated pipes and is carried away from your home through the main pipe.

Water Accumulation Effects
Without a Proper Drainage System

  • Water in the soil around your foundation can cause the soil to expand and put pressure on the foundation walls. This can lead to cracks in the foundation and damage to your home’s structure.
  • Water that seeps into the basement can damage belongings and create an ideal environment for mold growth. Molds can have various negative effects such as triggering allergies and respiratory problems.
  • Flooding is a very common problem if you have no proper drainage system. Floodwaters can damage your home, belongings, and your surroundings. This will then result to bigger problems such as accidents, health risks, and damages in your property.
Tiger C Construction helps your home protected from these possible problems. By installing an exterior drain, you are lessening the chance of these problems. exterior drains are important in every home. not just to avoid possible damage but as well as prevent flooding.

Our Exterior Drainage Solutions

Whether your property gets more underground water or surface water accumulation, both issues are addressed in similar ways. Every solution generally entails excavating a trench to redirect the water to a specific location to drain the water by gravity or into a sump pump if the property is too flat. The purpose of any drainage system or excavation is to “catch” the water before it accumulates in the specific areas to then redirect it elsewhere. We also install trench channel drains for garages that receive water!

Don’t worry about how your yard will look after we finish the job, we will be sure to clean up the excess soil and we will even put back any grass that was removed back over the areas of excavation. Proper drainage of the property can help reduce the chances of water getting into your crawl space or basements as well. If you are already experiencing water in your crawl space or basement, call us to schedule a free inspection to discuss whether an exterior or interior solution will be best for your home!

This company is great to work with. I had a water issue in one room in my basement. Every single person I dealt with, from the owner, the owner’s son, the guys who came to do some of the work and the sweet girl who answered the phone went above and beyond. If you have a waterproofing issue, this is the company to call.

We had a fantastic experience with the entire Tiger C team. They are so knowledgeable, responsive, quick and thorough. The work was precise and they cleaned up really thoroughly afterwards—our yard looks nicer now than when they started. Can’t recommend them enough for any foundation waterproofing needs.
