A Homeowner's Guide to Drainage Correction

Every home site needs proper drainage. If your site doesn't have adequate drainage, it can result in over-accumulation of water close to your foundation. This can put continual pressure on your foundation, and eventually cause it to heave, or shift upward. A proper drainage system will minimize this by directing water away from your foundation. Generally, a simple surface drainage system consisting of flexible pipe and various area drains will be sufficient to remedy the problem. If the ground around your building does not slope enough so that the water naturally drains, you may need a sump pump to aid the drain in its discharge.

For more information about drainage correction, contact the experts at Structured Foundation Repairs, Inc. We use engineer-approved methods to repair foundations in the Dallas and Ft. Worth area, and we are fully insured and bonded for your protection. To schedule an evaluation, call our team today at (972) 484-1200.

Will Your Homeowner's Insurance Cover Your Foundation Repairs?

When your home has been in need of repairs or has damages, it's easy to assume that your homeowner's insurance will cover all necessary repairs. When it comes to foundation problems, however, this is rarely the case. Here is a quick overview of what every homeowner should know about foundation repairs and homeowner's insurance.

What does a typical homeowner's policy cover? Most homeowner's insurance policies do not cover structural damage to a building, and hence exclude most types of foundation damage from coverage. However, for an additional fee, you can usually add a "dwelling foundation" rider onto your homeowner's policy. It is important that you are aware of what is covered by any riders that you choose to purchase.

How can I tell what my foundation rider covers? By law, your homeowner's policy must list the types of perils that are covered under your policy. Many policy riders cover foundation damage that is caused by water leaks and burst pipes, but foundation damage that is caused by settling or shifting foundations is generally not covered. Damage to your foundation caused by earthquakes and flooding is also excluded from coverage. However, you can purchase policies that cover these perils separately.

How do I know if I have a problem to begin with? At Structured Foundation Repairs, Inc., we specialize in foundation repair and drainage correction. We provide timely evaluations, expert repair, and professional installations to residential and commercial customers in the Dallas and Ft. Worth area.

Common Causes of Foundation Problems

Most of the time, the source of a problem with a slab foundation can be traced to soil conditions around the home. If the soil around your foundation does not have the right amount of moisture, it can cause your foundation to move. These are the most common ways in which soil can affect the condition of your foundation:

Not enough water. If the soil around your foundation is not getting enough water, it will begin to dry out. As the soil dries, it begins to contract. Over time, your foundation can settle. As your foundation settles, it can cause cracks to appear in bricks and tile, as well as causing doors and windows to stick.

Too much water. If the moisture content of the soil around your foundation increases, it can cause the soil to swell. As the soil expands, it pushes upward on your foundation. This can result in cracking, shifting, and other problems. Most often, excessive moisture in the soil comes from inadequate drainage, which allows water to pool near your foundation instead of being channeled safely away from it. Another source of excessive moisture can be a plumbing leak. Contacting a Master Plumber to test your sewage system for leaks may be beneficial in locating the underlying problem

Uneven water distribution. Your foundation is not usually affected when the moisture content of the soil underneath your foundation is consistent with the moisture content of the surrounding soil. When part of the soil around your foundation is either wetter or drier than the soil surrounding it, however, it can cause uneven swelling and shrinking. This can lead to heaving, settling, and overall foundation issues.

When you notice signs of trouble with your foundation, it's important that you have it evaluated by a qualified professional.
