What Is a French Drain System?
A French drain is a system that is used to collect and remove water from an area. French drains are often installed in basements and crawl spaces to prevent water from seeping in and causing damage. French drains typically consist of a perforated pipe that is buried beneath the ground. The pipe collects excess water and directs it away from your home.
Crawl Space French Drains & Interior Drainage Systems
Crawl space French drains are installed beneath your crawl space to keep it dry. If you have a wet or damp crawl space, water can seep in and cause mold growth, wood rot, and other problems. A French drain will collect the water and direct it away from your home before it has a chance to cause damage. Interior drainage systems are installed on the inside of your basement walls. These systems are used in conjunction with French drains to collect water that seeps through your basement walls and direct it to a sump pump. Sump pumps are then used to pump the water out of your basement and away from your home.
The Benefits of French Drain Installation
There are many benefits of having a French drain installed in your basement or crawl space, including:
French drains can help to prevent water damage by collecting and directing water away from your home.
Standing water is one of the leading causes of mold growth. By having a French drain installed, you can help to prevent mold from growing in your basement or crawl space.
French drains don't detract from the look of your home because they are installed underground.
The Budget Waterproofing French Drain Method
We follow a foolproof French drain method to ensure that your crawl space or basement stays dry. Our method includes the following steps:
- 1. We start by excavating the area around your home where the French drain will be installed.
- 2. Next, we install a perforated pipe in the excavated area.
- 3. The pipe is then covered with gravel and surrounded by a drainage fabric.
- 4. The area is then backfilled with dirt and tamped down.
