French Drain

French Drain Installation in Greater St. Louis, Springfield, Edwardsville, O’Fallon

How Efficient Are French Drains

A French Drain creates an easy passage for water to travel through. It redirects surface and groundwater away from the basement foundation so that it is saved from water damage. Water travels freely through the pipe, and then it is released at a safe distance from the foundation. The trench bottom of the french drain is slopped in a certain way in the direction you expect the water to move.

Installing French Drain

French Drain Installation

French drains are not installed deeply in the ground the way a footing drain is installed. The primary purpose of a french drain is to keep the basement dry. In the installation process, the landscapes, flower beds, shrubs, and walkways, etc., are repositioned or even removed around the perimeter, so it pretty much messes up the landscapes. But you can rest assured as our expert technicians can handle such delicate matters with ease and perfection. You will not have to suffer from any faulty installation.

Why Internal Drainage System is a Better Solution than A French Drain?

We recommend installing our internal drainage system more than the french drain. There are several reasons behind it. For starters, even though a french drain is suitable for driving basement water away and keeping it dry, it gets clogged over time. Dirt, dust, and other particles may get stuck, and you might have to reinstall french drains after every ten years.

If we compare the french drain with the internal drainage system, the latter is the better option. In this healthy drain system, the whole setup is done in an interior perimeter of a basement to capture water and redirect it outside.

Internal drainage system installation is not something complicated and doesn't require extensive work. Moreover, the maintenance work is easy to maintain as well. Only yearly maintenance work will keep the drainage system in good condition.
