Drain System Installation in Durham
Sometimes it doesn’t need to rain for water to seep into the basement of your home. With the high humidity we get in North Carolina, the expansive soil remains moist and continues to soak up water, and the more water it accumulates, the more hydrostatic pressure that soil exerts against your foundation and basement walls. Cracks in basements are inevitable, and you’ll eventually need a drainage system to divert water from your foundation.
For 35 years, Regional Foundation & Crawl Space Repair has helped folks in Durham find the ideal drain system solutions to protect their homes from water damage.
Which Drain System Is Best For You?
Your basement is different from every other basement in your neighborhood because of the slope of your property and the contents of the soil that surrounds your foundation and basement walls. Because of that, the perfect drain system for you needs to be designed specific to your property. We offer five drainage systems, and our experts at Regional Foundation & Crawl Space Repair can inspect your home to determine which one is the right drain system for your Durham property:
- • TrenchDrain™ Grated Drainage Pipe
- • WaterGuard® Below-Floor Drain
- • WaterGuard® IOS Perimeter Drain
- • DryTrak® Baseboard Drain Pipe
- • GeoDrain (strip drains) Thin Floor Drain System
TrenchDrain™ Grated Drainage Pipe
When you have an entry that floods consistently, The TrenchDrain™ Grated Drainage Pipe solution is the perfect drain system to divert water from the floor toward a perimeter drain or sump pump system.
WaterGuard® Below-Floor Drain
We install the WaterGuard® Basement Drain System below your basement floor and above the footing of your foundation. The drain rests on top of a bed of crushed stone or gravel. This is a common drain system in Durham homes.
WaterGuard® IOS Perimeter Drain
Iron bacteria in your groundwater smells terrible, and the iron ochre slime will clog your basement drainage system. If your property suffers this problem, we recommend the WaterGuard® IOS Perimeter Drain with large channels and openings to facilitate the easy diversion of the dense groundwater.
DryTrak® Baseboard Drain Pipe
The foundations of most homes are three-piece. If your house is built on a monolithic foundation—one piece—we recommend the DryTrak® Baseboard Drain Pipe system, which we install above the basement floor to eliminate the need to jackhammer into the basement floor or foundation.
GeoDrain – Thin Floor Drain System
GeoDrains are used to manage subsurface water. Geospacer drainage is an engineered geotextile that is made from a polymeric core that is fully wrapped and laminated. GeoDrains are an alternative to stone systems or french drain pipes for collecting water.
