French drain systems redirect groundwater away from the house and lowers the hydrostatic pressure against your basement walls. Due to the high water table around The Great Lakes, Michigan homes are at a greater risk of flooding. Michigan has more annual rainfall than most states, and the excessive moisture in the ground causes soil to shift and crack basement walls. Homes build on clay and other expansive soils need drainage systems that adequately prevent water from leaking through basement cracks.
StayDry is committed to helping Michigan homes remain water-free. Our complete line of basement waterproofing services include french drain installation, sump pump repair and replacement, interior and exterior waterproofing, and crack injection. We believe in doing a job correctly the first time, and we offer an obligation-free consultation to those who want to effectively waterproof their home. Flood and water damage prevention is much cheaper than water damage repair. To have a StayDry agent come to your home and inspect your basement for free, call 800.782.9379.
How French Drains Can Save Your Home
If you have a soggy yard, then a french drain is the perfect solution. Exterior french drains divert water away from your home into a storm drain or septic tank. Interior water drains catch the water pressing against your basement walls and move it into a sump basin. When the sump basin is full, a sump pump empties it. Sump pumps are critically important because if the sump basin overflows, it will flood your basement.
When a home floods, it is likely due to a faulty drainage system. New homeowners should call a professional basement waterproofer to make sure that their basement is equipped to handle Michigan precipitation. As a family-owned business, we provide honest consultations to those looking to save money in the long run. We don’t cut corners, and we believe in doing a job only once. Call StayDry today to protect your home against flooding and water damage.
Fortify Your Walls With Crack Injection
Once a basement settles, it causes the walls to crack. Horizontal cracks are indicators of severe structural damage, and calling a StayDry consultant will help you prevent additional damage. Vertical cracks, on the other hand, are less serious, and we will seal them with our high-pressure polyurethane injection system. Unlike our competitors, our sealant is guaranteed to last a lifetime. Filling your cracks while they’re small will prevent them from expanding and letting moisture into your home.
