As you make plans for your next home improvements, don’t think only of the cosmetic. Consider also practical updates.

Does water pool in your yard or in your basement? If so, French drains can help alleviate the problem and stop secondary issues such as mold and erosion around your home’s foundation.

If you’ve been wondering how to deal with excess water, French drains should be on your short list of options. It isn’t the ideal answer in every situation, but in many cases it can be at least part of the solution.

French Drains for Basement Waterproofing

When designing a plan for basement waterproofing, a French drain is often included. A French drain may be installed along the foundation to form a space that reduces the pressure created by underground water.

Basement waterproofers may also install French drains in the interior by removing some of the concrete, digging a trench and filling it with gravel. A corrugated plastic pipe is also placed in the trench and the concrete flooring replaced.

Depending on your basement and the severity of the issues you’re having, the French drain may take care of the problem or may be one piece of the puzzle required to keep your basement dry and reduce the risk of needing a foundation structural repair in the future.
