French Drain

Drain Systems                                                                       French Drain FAQs

At Basement Waterproofing Solutions, we’ve been designing and installing comprehensive waterproofing systems since 1961. A significant component of many of our interior and exterior solutions is a French drain installation.

You might be wondering … What exactly is a new or replacement French drain?

In simple terms, a French drain is a perforated channel for water to flow through, preventing rain water from flooding your basement and ground water from creating pent-up hydrostatic pressure, which can cause water seepage as well as serious foundation damage.

With the French drain installers of Basement Waterproofing Solutions, you’re guaranteed all the benefits of this unique drainage solution—along with the personal touch of a family-owned business that’s three generations strong!

Do I Need a French Drain for Basement Waterproofing?

When it comes to effective basement waterproofing, no two homes will require the exact same type of waterproofing systems. However, many homeowners across Staten Island and New Jersey do indeed benefit from a French drain installation.

Here are a few scenarios that point to a need for a new or replacement French drain:

  • Water seeping in between the basement floor and foundation wall seam.
  • Water seeping in through a crack in the basement floor.
  • Water seeping in around lally columns.
  • Leaking walls, especially those made of cement/cinder block, brick, or fieldstone.

All of these instances are evidence of water being pushed up through the ground and into your property—and they shouldn’t be left alone for long!

Custom-Designed French Drains

Compared to many local waterproofing companies, Basement Waterproofing Solutions offers far more comprehensive expertise. Instead of one-size-fits-all systems, our French drains come in three types: low-profile, mid-grade, and premium. One of our French drain installers will inspect your property, share the pros and cons of each system, and help you choose the ideal solution for you.

No matter which French drain ends up being the best for your property, you’ll enjoy the confidence of our BBB accreditation, Basement Health Association membership, and authorized dealer status with Basement Technologies. Better yet, you’ll be protected by our lifetime guarantees.
