Our drainage repair services include repair of downspout drainage systems, installation of new drainage systems, and surface drainage solutions.

The drainage system of any residence is essential to the strength of the foundation and the welfare of the basement and everything in it. Malfunctions with the drainage system can lead to moisture in the basement and movement of the foundation. Water that is not properly carried away from the residence can collect in and outside of the basement walls and can cause very serious foundation problems. Correction of drainage problems can avert further, more costly problems with the foundation. We can catch and fix the problem before it becomes serious by making sure that the water is carried away from the residence and basement walls.

French Drainage systems

A French drain is a simple yet time tested way of removing water that has collected in your yard. A French drain is constructed of PVC pipe that has holes in the side. The pipe is covered by a geotextile sleeve that prevents soil or roots from growing into the pipe. The pipe is laid into a 6” wide trench and encased in gravel. Once the gravel is installed, small voids are created in the soil that attract water to the system. Water then flows into the system and through the pipe, away from the affected area. Two inches of soil covers the French drain and grass is grown over top.


French drainage systems are installed in areas where constant wetness or standing water occurs. French drains can completely eliminate wet areas and restore normal drainage patterns to large areas of your yard.
