Crawl Space Drainage
If you’re reading this article, you understand that having any crawl space drainage issues is a serious problem. A dry crawl space is important, so let’s get to the meat of the matter. For starters, crawl space drainage is something that should be left to the experts.
First, your crawl space is also your foundation and you don’t want to take the risk of it being damaged. Additionally, 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? Consequently, that cheaper option always ends up being more expensive after additional repairs are made.
Crawl Space Drainage Options
Crawl space drainage includes a good sump pump, which is located in the low spot of your crawl space. In general, 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. To clarify, French drains are a below surface drainage solution that will connect to your sump pump. More importantly, this connection removes 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. However, nine times out of ten, the best way to permanently dry out your crawl space is to seal it off.
