Numerous risks result from not having a proper drainage system on your property, so this is where our French drain installation comes into play. Thankfully, French drains help resolve that vast majority of drainage-related issues that affect the home.
French Drain Systems
A French drain, also referred to as a perimeter drain, a curtain drain, an agricultural drain, or weeping tile is comprised of a trench filled with gravel and a perforated pipe. French drains can help direct surface water and groundwater away from a specific area and toward another specific area. The area that we’re typically trying to divert water away from is the home’s foundation so that we can avoid potential erosion issues or foundation issues. French drains can also be installed for sump pumps, retaining walls, and downspouts.
