Protect your home from water intrusion

Proper drainage is crucial to maintaining the integrity of your property’s foundation and preventing costly damage. At Ward Construction, we specialize in comprehensive drainage solutions designed to protect your home from water-related issues. Serving Alameda, Contra Costa, Solano, and Marin counties, our expert team is dedicated to providing reliable and effective drainage systems tailored to your specific needs.

Drainage Systems and Beyond

One of our key services is the installation of sub-surface drainage systems, a highly efficient method to redirect water away from your foundation. These systems consist of a trench filled with gravel and a perforated pipe that guides water away from vulnerable areas. By effectively managing water flow, drainage systems help prevent water accumulation that can lead to foundation settlement, mold growth, and other structural problems.

Customized Solutions for Every Property

Every property is unique, and so are its drainage needs. That’s why Ward Construction offers customized drainage solutions that address the specific challenges of your site. Whether you’re dealing with surface water pooling, inadequate slope, or problematic downspouts, our team will assess your property and implement the most effective strategies to ensure optimal water management. Our goal is to provide you with a system that keeps your foundation dry and stable.

Expertise and Quality You Can Trust

With decades of experience in the industry, Ward Construction has built a reputation for excellence in drainage solutions. Our highly trained crews use established and proven techniques to deliver results that exceed expectations. We work closely with you, from the initial consultation to the final inspection, ensuring that every detail is handled with precision and care.

Foundation Repair

Our Bay Area foundation repair operations are comprehensive. We repair, lift, replace, and level all types of foundations.


Retaining Walls

It is often necessary to install a retaining wall to prevent soil movement.  Our team installs solid, well-designed retaining walls to prevent landslides, mudslides, and ultimately, foundation problems.


Proper drainage around homes is critical for stabilizing the soil and preventing damage to the foundation from excess water.  Your foundation is designed to be supported by dry soil, not wet soil. We design and install drainage systems and retaining walls, to keep your home safe and dry.


Our leveling services address uneven floors and misaligned structural components by restoring your foundation to its proper position, preventing further damage, enhancing the overall stability of your home and relieving stress on the structure so it will perform better during earthquakes.

Seismic Retrofit

Seismic retrofitting involves strengthening your existing foundation and structure to better absorb and distribute the energy generated by an earthquake. This reduces the risk of catastrophic failure, ensuring the safety of your home and family during a seismic event.


What People are Saying

Ward Construction installed a drainage system. They provided a detailed review of the foundation and explained several possible solutions. They also gave me a detailed estimate and time line for the work. It was completed as described. The team is responsive to calls and questions, and met with me to explain details. It was a very good experience and I highly recommend this company for any job related to foundation work and drainage.

Ward Construction installed a French Drain along the site of my house in late 2022, right before the epic rain in December/January. The drain worked, the basement is dry and I am very happy. His team was professional, fast and cleaned up well. I would recommend Ward Construction to anyone.
