Diverting water away from your home is a vital part of a healthy foundation. No one wants a leaky or flooded basement, but these problems don’t occur overnight. Instead, it’s years of rainy days and poor water prevention that leads to cracks in your foundation and eventually the need for foundation repair.

While the team here at A-1 Concrete Leveling and Foundation Repair in Nashville is full of foundation repair experts, we’d rather help you take measures to prevent damage from happening in the first place! Along with concrete leveling and foundation repair, we also provide several water solutions, which we are going to be sharing with you today. If you think your home could benefit from improved water control, contact us today!

Waterproofing Basement Walls

We offer basement waterproofing, that helps protect your basement, foundation, and possessions from damage. Waterproofing is also important for the health of you and your loved ones, as a damp basement can lead to mold growth, which causes respiratory irritation.

Downspout Extensions

If your downspouts aren’t draining properly, you will have water pooling near your home and potentially damaging your foundation. Can your downspouts handle the deluge of water we get here in Nashville each spring? Can they direct it away from your home? Even if you have gutter guards or regularly clean your gutters, if your downspouts aren’t in tip-top shape, your foundation may be at risk. Our team will come out and take a look at your downspouts and let you know exactly what you need to ensure the future safety of your home. 

French Drains

French drains are a more complex drainage system that diverts water underground through a pipe set in a trench filled with gravel or rock. The pipe is perforated, allowing it to fill with groundwater and then direct that groundwater away from your home. French drains have no moving parts, which means that once they’re installed, you’re unlikely to need to repair them. The team at A-1 Concrete Leveling and Foundation Repair in Nashville has more than 30 years of experience installing drainage systems, and we are more than happy to talk with you about your options.

Catch Basin

Standing water is hazardous, and catch basins are an effective solution. They hold the water where you want it to be, rather than where it naturally collects. Our concrete contractors and foundation experts will work with you to create a concrete catch basin, storm drain catch basin, or other drainage solution to fit your needs. Let us help you remove that standing water in your yard, landscaping, or parking lot before it causes damage to your home’s foundation.

Drainage Swales

Drainage swales direct stormwater around and away from your home, and we can create one for you either in dirt or made from concrete. Drainage swells are a great way to find a solution to your water drainage needs without breaking the bank. We offer free quotes as well, so you can compare costs and types of projects before committing to our team.
