When do you need a French drain?
*When you have a problem with surface water, such as a driveway that washes out or soggy areas on the lawn.
*If water is getting into your basement due to surface water not draining away from the house.
*If you are planning on building a retaining wall on a hillside.
How does a French drain work?
*French drains provide a channel for water to flow through. The water flows through a gravel-filled trench and into a perforated
pipe that is located at the bottom of the trench. The water empties a safe distance away from the house and is diverted to:
*A low-lying area of your property that is located away from the house.
*A drainage ditch.
*A dry well.
Vapor Barrier (creates a moisture between concrete and finished basement walls)
WHY YOUR BASEMENT LEAKS:
**Surface water collects and builds up in a pocket around the foundation causing
**Water is then forced through the joint where the floor and wall meet.
**When a water problem is left untreated, hydrostatic pressure will begin to force
water through the foundation and cracks in the floor.
