Irvine Drainage Kings
Yard drainage is one of the vital aspects of any home with a yard and lawn. It is highly frustrating for homeowners to deal with outdoor problems such as improper yard
drainage. You may feel that your lawn becomes a messy swamp every time it rains in your area. The water buildup in your yard takes excessive time to dry out and by the time it does fully dry out, the next rainy day may just be on your head.
The collection of water can have detrimental effects all over. Firstly, standing water is a breeding ground for insects such as mosquitos, which spread deadly illnesses like malaria and dengue. The water also attracts houseflies which are one of the most disgusting insects ever as they spread dirt and germs everywhere. Therefore, it is a major health risk not to have a valid and proper outdoor drainage system installed.
On the other side, the collection of water can cause damage to the foundation of your house. The gutters tend to start overflowing, spreading contaminated, dirty water all over your yard and lawn instead of getting drained into the sewers. When water causes lateral pressure against the foundation walls of your house, there may be bulging of walls, leaks, and cracks as a result. With collective water, mold happily grows around the dampened areas, especially if the water seeps deep inside your walls and reaches dark, moist areas like your basement. The landscape of your house will be severely damaged and paying for these repairs will be as costly as building a new house from scratch.
The water and excess moisture will cause your soil to sink and become heavier which would ultimately exert more pressure on the foundation of the house. In winters, trapped moisture in the soil can freeze and form ice crystals, eventually putting additional pressure on the infrastructure.

Perimeter drainage system installation:
Just like you have internal drainage systems attached to your sinks, washing machines, toilets in the house, similarly your outdoor area should always have a sturdy perimeter drainage system. It prevents water from seeping into your house’s foundation and places like your basement by attracting water from heavy rains, rising groundwater, or melting snow even.
Its purpose is to take the water away from your house. It is composed of a plastic or PVC pipe installed all-around your house’s perimeter, underground. The pipe has thousands of tiny holes through which the water enters which is drained away by the pipe to the sewer system. It is also skillfully covered with graduated gravel to prevent soil from entering into the pipe and clogging it up.
With adequate sloping and fully functional perimeter drains are the key to preventing the seepage of water. This is the job for professionals only.

French Drainage System Installation:
French drains are also quite commonly installed and preferred in Irvine and the Inland Empire. It is composed of a trench that is filled with rock or gravel and a perforated pipe that collects and takes the surface and groundwater away from your yards. This prevents any sort of damage to the foundation of your house. These drains also are great for use behind retaining walls as they significantly help in reducing groundwater pressure.
The installation of a French drain system with catch basins is quite technical and complex. Hence, it can be only handled well by a professional company like ours. To install it, the basement floor’s perimeter is jackhammered with the removal of concrete. A stony layer with a perforated pipe is laid down. A sump pump is also installed to redirect the water away from the foundation of the house. In the end, a 2-inch gap around the edge is left and the rest is covered by concrete.
