Drainage Problems in Tampa
The biggest problem with homes in Tampa, Florida, is the floor elevation is lower than the exterior yard elevation. This can lead to a number of different problems with drainage around the home like, flooding and erosion of soils around your home. When these conditions exist it’s very important to make the necessary repairs to Waterproof the Foundation and more importantly control the Drainage so that water doesn’t have enough time to build up under the slab of your home. Poor Drainage can trigger a deadly Sinkhole on your property.
Signs of damage to look for:
- Damp floors
- Discoloration in tile or hardwood flooring.
- Curling of hardwood flooring.
- Bottom of walls getting wet.
- Mold odor and standing water around the structure.
The picture on the right is damage from moisture coming up from the floor. If moisture comes in contact with the bottom of your concrete floor it will transfer through the concrete causing the tile to pop free and hardwood flooring to discolor and rot. In extreme cases it will travel up the wall. When you first notice discoloration in your flooring or in walls its a sign that something is wrong. Don’t wait! Call us for your free inspection! Foundation Masters, LLC will give you a permanent solution and back it with a lifetime transferable warranty.
