Nashville Sump Pump Installation & Repair

crawl space sump pumpHaving a reliable defense in place when the water table rises and Nashville’s winter rains and occasional snow hit is an important part of owning and maintaining property in the area.  Without a gravity drain or sump pump system, your foundation and your belongings are at risk.  If water is allowed to sit in your basement or crawl space, mold growth could compromise your health.

The expert team at Olshan in Nashville is prepared and trained to mitigate these types of damages by installing a quality sump pump system.  This is often an essential part of an effective waterproofing repair plan. It is also a great way to help prevent a wet basement.  Fixing a bowing or cracked basement or crawl space wall is not enough – protecting that repair investment with mitigation measures can ensure you don’t ever have to worry about wet concrete so long as our quality solution is working properly.

Gravity Drain – Water Discharge Alternative

gravity drainNot every basement or crawl space in Nashville may require a sump pump. A fully-trained and qualified Olshan technician will review your existing home inside and out, as well as your landscaping and area water drainage threats, and let you know whether a gravity drain or sump pump might be the right answer.

A Gravity Drain system uses a natural slope on your property to discharge water from your home.  The types of properties that might qualify require an adequate slope, and often requires excavation from under your home’s footer and exterior landscaping.  Our professional technicians can assess and explain the pros and cons of both systems to you when they provide your estimate.

Gravity Drain Installation includes:

  • 1 Yr Workmanship Warranty
  • 4” Corrugated or Solid Pipe, which is dependent upon your unique drainage situation
  • Exterior Drainage 
  • Properly graded slope
  • Pop-Up Drain Emitters
Note: Gravity Drain product & service may vary depending on repair plan configuration

Dear Olshan,
We recently had some sump pumps and waterproofing installed in our home.  We were so excited to have this done, and the team that came out to our home was lead by Treavor.  He was a good leader and had a good crew.   They arrived on time each day, and worked well as a team.  They cleaned as they went and made sure everything was put back as they found it or better.  We really appreciate them as a team, and the work was #1 to us.  Thanks Olshan for a great job well done and the wonderful team you sent to do the job.  I will recommend ya’ll to my friends and other neighbors.  Thanks again for the Great job well done.
