Home ยป Crawlspace Drainage Systems

In the Wilmington area, where the water table can pose challenges, Cape Fear Crawlspaces offers expert solutions with our interior French drains and exterior French drains, paired with sump pump services.

Effective water management solutions for your crawl space

The high water table in our area, particularly after rains, can lead to water accumulation beneath foundations and footers, especially in sandy soil conditions. To mitigate this risk and prevent crawl space flooding, we specialize in the installation, replacement, and repairs of French drains and sump pumps for effective crawlspace drainage.

Understanding French drains

A French drain is a key component for redirecting water and preventing water accumulation in vulnerable areas. This system involves a trench filled with gravel or rock, housing a perforated pipe that captures excess water. Once installed, the French drain efficiently captures water from the surrounding soil and directs it into the perforated pipe. The water is then guided away from the area, ensuring effective water management and safeguarding against potential flooding.

Sump pumps for excess water removal

In conjunction with French drains, our services include the installation, replacement, and repairs of sump pumps. A sump pump is designed to remove accumulated water in a sump pit, commonly found in basements or crawl spaces. This proactive measure prevents water damage by efficiently pumping out excess water and averting the risk of flooding. Our expert team ensures that sump pumps are strategically placed to discharge water safely, protecting your crawl space from potential water-related issues.
