Exterior Foundation Waterproofing, Florida Homes, Slab Construction

Water coming in bedroom after heavy rains. Needs Footer Pipe (French Drain) that runs around the exterior foundation.

Florida homes usually do not have a footer with block and floor. Instead, they have a footer that slab concrete floor sits on. But usually the footer is only 6 to 8 inches thick and usually the slab is below grade. This allows water to enter across the slab into the home.

Because lots are very level here, a sump pump is needed to lift the water up and away from the footer. Also install footer pipe (French Drain) perforated pipe surround by gravel and encase it in fabric because of the sandy soil.
