Why Invest in Water Management in Muskogee, OK?
If your home has inadequate waterproofing or poor drainage, water can build up around the foundation. These conditions can make your home vulnerable to serious health issues and financial concerns. As the water increases, it creates pressure against the foundation walls causing bowing, leaning and cracking. As water finds its way into your basement, it promotes mold growth, mildew, and flooding. Also, water can damage your home’s structure and lower the value of your home. At FRS, we offer waterproofing solutions to protect your home’s foundation in Muskogee, OK.
Homeowners can help alleviate most water-related issues by maintaining proper drainage around the home. Some water prevention tips include:
- Cleaning gutters
- Installing downspout extensions
- Sloping landscaping away from the foundation
- Planting trees and shrubs at least 6 feet away from the foundation
These factors cause water-related issues in and around your home. It’s important to look for obvious signs of water damage caused by too much water. Common signs include:
- Sticking doors and windows
- Wall or brick discoloration
- Premature aging of concrete
- Flaking or chipping foundation
- Interior wall cracks
- Mold growth
- Allergens and respiratory issues
- Weak foundation
- Wood rot
- Water seepage
All these conditions can lead to foundation settlement over time. Hire a professional to assess your home for signs of water problems.
Water Management Solutions for Foundations in Muskogee, OK
To manage water and moisture issues, FRS offers a water management system that includes interior waterproofing, exterior waterproofing, and a drainage system.
The exterior waterproofing system collects water around the foundation and keeps it from entering the basement. The area is excavated, then the foundation walls are sprayed with a polymer waterproofing material. Next, a drain pipe is installed. Sump pumps are also installed to collect and direct water away from the foundation.
With the interior waterproofing system, a seal drain tile is placed next to the footing. This system can be installed with a wall vapor barrier to guard the basement against mold, mildew, and allergens. The drain also collects water from underneath the foundation and drain it into a sump pump system.
In addition to our interior and exterior drainage system, we offer surface drainage solutions. This system consists of a catch basin and grates, drainage pipes, strip drain, pop-up emitter, drywells, atrium gates, and a channel drain. All these components work together to capture water runoff and discharge it away from your home. Also, it protects your basement walls from hydrostatic pressure caused by too much water in the soil.
