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.

I called Tiger C Construction for an estimate because the company had good reviews and a clean record. However, it was the way they explained every phase of the process and how the solutions would resolve the problem that sold me. The workers showed up and did the job exactly as advertised; I was extremely happy with the results. They totally transformed my home's structure and crawl space to the point where it is level and moisture free. Overall, the entire job from start to finish was an enjoyable experience; I highly recommend this company.

Overall I was pleased with Tiger C. They did an inspection agreed with me on possible solution, installed everything on time. My only disappointment was after I had made a deposit on the work to done, but not completed, I received a coupon in the mail offering 5 % off any job, when inquired about the coupon, I was told they could not honor it. Maybe its just little thing, but don't send stuff out if you are not going to stick by your offer. 175 dollars is still a big chunk of money, even if the fine print say you have to present coupon before inspection.

It is refreshing to be able to make an enthusiastic post in support of a contractor. Tiger C did a great job for us. They installed a new trench drain along the end of our house, installed a yard inlet, installed new below grade drain tiles for our downspouts, and they completely reworked our crawlspace. The crawlspace work included new perimeter drain tile inside the foundation walls tied into a sump, new crawlspace access door, and complete encapsulation. We no longer have drainage issues outside and the previous water and moisture issues in the crawlspace are behind us. These folks are knowledgeable, hardworking, responsive, and honest. Highly Recommended!

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 over the areas of excavation. Proper drainage of the property can help reduce the chances of water getting into your crawl space waterproofing Richmond VA or basements as well. If you are already experiencing water in your crawl space or basement waterproofing Richmond VA, call us to schedule a free inspection to discuss whether an exterior or interior solution will be best for your home!
