How French Drains Work

A French Drain is a gravel-filled trench with a slotted pipe. These elements work together to direct both surface and groundwater away from your home and transport it to a specified area of your property. French drains are typically used near your Glenwood home’s foundation to help prevent water from entering the foundation and from flooding your basement. These drains direct surface water toward the lowest part of your property by allowing water to enter a perforated pipe. But unlike other drain systems, water is allowed to enter the drain at any time through the perforated pipe instead of a single opening. French drains help prevent water from pooling in the specific areas of the property.

French Drain Installations

The first step to any drain installation is to determine the location. When working with our on-staff drainage system designers, we will help you choose the right spot for your new French drain. We will also make sure your property is properly graded and the depth is right for optimal drainage. Our staff will also check to make sure there is nothing underground that could prevent the installation and check with city codes to make sure the drains are allowed in your specific area. After everything is checked, our team will start to excavate your property and put the French drain into place. After the drain is installed, we will fill it with gravel before covering it with topsoil and new sod to blend it in with the rest of your property. Your new French drain will keep your property safe and dry throughout the year so you don’t have to worry about water entering your home!
