Yard Drainage & French Drains
Do you have water pooling up in your yard? If so, you may want to install an effective yard drainage system. At ALL SEASONS WATERPROOFING AND DRAINAGE, INC., it’s what we do, and we do it very well, on time, and at a reasonable price.
Not only will your yard look better and be more useful, but having a yard that drains properly will prevent water damage to your home’s foundation. Furthermore, a proper drainage system and gutters with the correct type of extensions will often eliminate water seepage into a basement or crawl space.
What is a French Drain?
A French drain is normally put in at the lowest point of your yard to ensure it captures and redirects water. However, a drain system can be installed elsewhere if the troublesome water is not located at the lowest spot in a yard. The drain tile system will have a drain port positioned so it will not allow the water to flow back toward your home, foundation or basement.
The drain tile system itself is buried into the ground. Since the the drain uses gravity to help it carry the water away, it is necessary to install your French drain on a downward slope of at least ¼ inch per foot. The professionals at ALL SEASONS WATERPROOFING AND DRAINAGE, INC. have the equipment and knowledge to ensure that the drain slopes properly.
Hire A Contractor or Do-it-Yourself
A drain tile project is pretty simple to plan but requires a lot of manual effort. Experience matters in producing a result that is going to work. Often the do-it-yourselfer may encounter some problems along the way, for example, tree roots, driveways, sidewalks, large rocks, or underground utilities. Installing the French drain yourself can be more time-consuming and costly than hiring a professional. We have often had customers work for weeks on their yard drainage only to call us and have the problem fixed in a day with our experienced crews.
