Crawl Space Drainage
If you're reading this article, then you understand that having a dry crawl space is important. So let's get to the meat of the matter.
Crawl space drainage is something that should be left to the experts. The reason for this is two-fold.
1. Your crawl space is also your foundation and you don't want to take the risk of it being damaged. That could lead to major headaches and expensive repairs.
2. You want your crawl space dried out right the first time. Why waste your money on a quick fix or cheap repair that you're going to end up fixing? That cheaper option always ends up being more expensive after additional repairs are made.
Crawl Space Drainage Options
Crawl space drainage typically includes a good sump pump which is located in the low spot in your crawl space. The water will naturally drain into the sump pump which will then remove it from the crawl space.
If your crawl space has a major water problem then a perimeter drain or French drain may be installed along the crawl space foundation walls. French drains are a below surface drainage solution that will connect to your sump pump to remove any water in your crawl space.
Before you invest time and money into crawl space drainage, you'll need to find out where the water's coming from. This will dictate how to best fix your crawl space. Nine times out of ten, the best way to permanently dry out your crawl space is to seal it off.
