Consequences of Poor Foundation Drainage
If the water runoff around the home’s foundation isn’t draining properly, cracking can occur due to unleveled soil. With time, the soil may erode, causing a shift in your foundation as the soil is less stable. Clogged gutters and downspout drains that improperly angled will exacerbate the problem. Groundwater can also penetrate through the soil if it collects too closely to the exterior foundation drain.
Excess moisture, wall damage, wood rotting, peeling paint, may occur due to poor foundation drainage. In a worst-case scenario, the structure may sink into the ground and even collapse.
Don’t let this happen to your house! Call the foundation drain professionals at World Class Services to restore your foundation drainage issues. We are available 24 hours a day for emergencies.

Why Proper Foundation Drainage is So Important
With time, gravity and climate fluctuations will cause the streets in your neighborhood to shift or slide toward the homes nearby. This results in pressure and cracking to the foundation of these homes as the soil around the foundation expands.
Here are the components of a proper foundation drainage system:
- Ample distance between trees and the structure or foundation
- Gutters and downspouts that are well-maintained and directed below the soil surface
- Footing drain pipes to collect water and direct it away from the foundation
- Drain pipes placed alongside the foundation footing
- Conforms to local building codes
Your downspouts should adequately direct water away from your house and your home’s foundation. If you need professional help, call World Class Services for prompt foundation drain service.
