Is there any reliable company that installs foundation watering systems for residential homes? How much does it cost around?

Angie's list has deals on foundation watering inspections and recommendations. But essentially you just need to put soaker hoses around the perimeter of the foundation, about 14 to 16 inches away from the foundation, not right up to the structure (we had foundation repair work so the warranty stipulates the foundation must be maintained in this fashion in order for the warranty to be valid, even if you have automatic sprinklers). We set ours on a timer and run it three times a week in the summer for 30-45 minutes, unless its been raining like today!
