Trust Rapid-Dri Foundation Solutions to Alleviate Hydrostatic Pressure
Hydrostatic pressure is a term used to describe a high or rising water table. In Michigan, water tables can fluctuate depending on rainfall amounts, snowmelt and drought. When the water table rises too high, water can actually come up from the floor in your basement or through cracks in the wall seam.
Hydrostatic pressure can do a number on your foundation and basement. It can cause retaining walls to buckle, interior walls to crack and your foundation to shift. During periods of high hydrostatic pressure, your basement is prone to flooding, especially when heavy or prolonged rains occur.
As an experienced foundation repair specialist, Rapid-Dri Foundation Solutions has helped many homeowners deal with hydrostatic pressure and its disastrous consequences.
How to Fix Hydrostatic Pressure Problems
There are both external and internal solutions to hydrostatic pressure, but at Rapid-Dri Foundation Solutions, we recommend an internal system because it is easier and less expensive to install.
A true solution to the problems caused by hydrostatic pressure is a sump pump. As the real workhouse of any waterproofing system, it pumps and removes standing water from a basement. At Rapid-Dri Foundation Solutions, we make use of industrial-grade sump pumps designed to last for years without issues.
Our professionals can install or replace an existing pump to guarantee your home will be protected during periods of high hydrostatic pressure. No more cracks, no more shifting foundation and no more flooding. We can typically complete sump pump installation in a few days, with minimal mess and hassle.
