Protect Your Property from Standing Water
What is a French Drain?
French drains are used to prevent water from penetrating or damaging building foundations and other structures.
A french drain is a trench filled with gravel or rock or containing a perforated pipe that redirects surface water and groundwater away from an area. A French drain can have perforated hollow pipes along the bottom to quickly vent water that seeps down through the upper gravel or rock.A French drain goes by a number of names:
French Drain • Weeping Tile • Trench Drain • Filter Drain • Blind drain • Rubble Drain • Rock Drain • Drain Tile • Perimeter Drain • Land Drain • French Ditch • Sub-Surface Drain • Sub-Soil Drain • Agricultural Drain
The Hazards of Standing Water
French Drain Installation
French drains are an effective method to drain saturated areas and divert the water to areas where it will be better able to absorb or evaporate.
If water problems are left unaddressed, your home’s landscape and structural integrity can suffer greatly.
Superior Stoneworks can assess your drainage issue and recommend a solution for your residence or commercial property.
