Drainage System Installation: Nashville Experts - Ground Up Foundation Repair

Foundation Drainage in Middle Tennessee

A foundation drainage system instillation means a strong foundation and a dry basement. If your home isn’t waterproofed on the outside, water can easily enter the foundation through small cracks. Ground Up Foundation Repair installs exterior drainage systems in Nashville, Murfreesboro, and the surrounding areas of Middle Tennessee.

With the season changes, the amount of water in the soil that surrounds your home can change with it. Beneath the surface of your home is a water table. This is the point at which you can hit water when digging. The water table changes according to the amount of rainfall within any given season.

In certain parts of the country, the water table can actually rise to within a few feet of the surface during particularly wet times of the year. When water drains it will take the path of least resistance.


An exterior foundation drainage system installation can eliminate worry about water issues in basements in Middle Tennessee.

A drain tile system is a method of transporting groundwater away from the basement. It is important to keep water from collecting near the foundation. Water that is trapped near a house’s structure, or even beneath the structure, is the number one reason foundation repair is necessary.

  • Waterproofing Membrane
  • Dimple Drainage Board
