A Buried Barn – Massillon, OH

French drain

Gary was referred to Eco-Seal by our friends at Holmes Siding, after they did some work on his Massillon home. The problem? His home was on a hill and water was running down into the back yard, creating a very damp and soggy environment.

Our Eco-Seal team showed up promptly and went straight to work, installing a three-leg French drain system which carried water off of the property.

But we were in for a surprise. Two feet under ground, we found an old foundation that was holding standing water and causing additional problems. An old barn had been on the property, and the remaining foundation had been trapping moisture for over 20 years.

It took us three days to dig the old foundation out, but its removal – along with the new French drain system – means that Gary’s back yard is now as dry as his front.
