Unseen PressureGround water can be a big problem for a basement. If it accumulates and fails to drain away from the foundation, it can exert enormous pressure on the fundamental structure of your home. Wall cracks, leaking or bowing walls, crumbling cement or concrete – these and other problems can be avoided by having Real Dry install a pressure relief system in your basement along the perimeter of your foundation.
We carefully excavate a precise trench just inside your basement walls while simultaneously examining the condition of the footings beneath your foundation. After confirming the integrity of the underlying structure, we install a carefully selected mix of triple washed, 3/4 inch stone to create a drainage bed that swiftly and efficiently eliminates any water from your basement. This system, in concert with the professionally-installed drainage piping that accompanies it, utilizes the most powerful and efficient force in the known universe – gravity – to instantly alleviate all of the pressure being exerted on the foundation of your home.
