Drain Services to Keep Your Home Water-Free

Having water pool up in your yard when it rains not only makes your lawn unusable, it could potentially cause major damage to your home. If this is happening to you and you want to take steps to protect your home from flood damage, it may be time for a visit from your local Tampa drainage contractor at LRE Foundation Repair.

Low elevation, abundant foliage, and poor drainage can lead to basement and crawl space water damage, and these issues are unfortunately all too common for Tampa area homes. Your home needs drains and gutters installed and repaired properly in order to prevent flooding and moisture issues. Our Tampa drainage contractors have seen it all when it comes to flooding and water damage risks, so we know how best to address each issue. LRE’s experience lets us offer installation and repair on a variety of effective drainage systems like downspouts, French drains, and percolation trenches that can be custom designed to solve your water problems.

Contact us for a free yard evaluation. One of our friendly drainage contractors will come to your home for an on-site, no-obligation inspection.


How To Fix Drainage Issues


We start by discovering exactly what kind of water issue your home has. An LRE Foundation Repair representative will visit your home for an inspection, keeping a close eye on all drainage issues, including some of the most common ones like:

  • Bad grading: A yard with poor grading allows water to enter your home's foundation or pool into puddles because the slope is incorrect. A yard slope should protect the foundation and eliminate water stagnation by having the grade angled away from your home.
  • Abundant plants: The root systems of plants increase the density of soil and force water to drain towards them to be used slowly over time. This makes it harder for water to be absorbed by the soil, which means that having a large number of plants and foliage in your yard can lead to water damage and flooding in your basement, crawl space, and foundation.
  • Ineffective gutter systems: Gutters are necessary for gathering water from storms and relocating it away from the vulnerable foundation. Gutters and downspouts that don’t reach far enough away from the home, or deposit water in bad areas, can sometimes be worse than no drainage system. This is because it can overload the ground in one area and allow water to seep into the foundation.

LRE Foundation Repair has the expertise to help protect your home from water and eliminate drainage issues. Take a look at some of the systems our Tampa drainage installation experts can design for your home:

Exterior Drainage in Tampa, FL

French Drain

A French drain is an underground pipe with many holes in it that is made to spread water safely throughout your yard. A variety of water issues are solved by the French drain’s unique design. LRE has designed an effective replacement to the normal stone-and-pipe drain with our EZ-Flow French drain system. The EZ-Flow French drain costs less, is easier to install, and protects your yard much better than a stone-and-pipe drain will. Our system makes perimeter drains, retaining wall drains, and landscape drains easy to install and effective at their job.

Gutter Downspout Extension in Tampa, FL

Downspout Drainage

An effective gutter and downspout system will divert water from your roof and drain it away from the foundation, preventing severe water damage to your home. LRE has recessed, above-ground, and underground downspout extensions available that can prevent water from draining around your foundation. These include our RainChute, RainChute EZ, and LawnSpace Outlet lines.

Exterior Basement Drainage System in Tampa, FL

Trench Drain/Channel Drain

If you need to prevent water from entering your home through a door or stairwell, then a trench or channel drain is the right solution. These drains are designed to keep your home dry by collecting water bound for your basement or garage and diverting it to your sump pump or other perimeter drainage system.

Despite the similarity in name, trench and French drains solve very different water issues for your home. Our clients always ask us what makes the two types of drains different and why they might both be needed. French drains are designed to remove water that saturates your lawn and has sunken below the surface, while a trench or channel drain diverts water as it pools up on the surface.

Learn more about the trench drain system.

Percolation Trench

One of LRE’s most effective ways to deal with overflowing water from rainstorms that can cause flooding or soil erosion near driveways and sidewalks is with a percolation trench. Gravel and stone are loaded into a shallow trench that helps divert water away from your foundation similar to a French drain.

Learn more about percolation trenches.

Catch Basin

Catch basins protect your home and increase yard drainage near standing bodies of water. A grate is installed at the top of the catch basin, which collects water and the debris and sediment it carries and drains it into a drainage system installed below the surface.
