French Drains Installation
Having pools of water collecting in your basement, yard or on the sides of your home is one of the worst things that can happen to your home. If this persists, damp or structural damage is likely to occur if the problem is not handled correctly.
What are French Drains?
French drains are an effective solution for directing the water away from your building. Here, weeping tiles are used. They are well perforated pipes that are used for drainage. These pipes are fixed in trenches in the areas of concern, and they easily direct the water away from the home. A sump pump sometimes enhances French drains where necessary. French drains are a suitable method of controlling the flow of water if your yard or basement has a particular area that holds pools of water. Weeping tiles can also be used as part of a full exterior or interior waterproofing solution.
French drain installation
French drain installation is a procedure that can free you from the frequent collection of pools of water in your home or yard. We excavate a ditch at the point where the water collects, then fix a French drain pipe, usually known as weeping tile. This is enclosed by gravel and lined with landscaping fabric for maximum stability and protection. The water that ultimately gathers will be led down through the gravel, and traces its path into the piping. The pipe will be brilliantly designed to convey the water away from your property. Aquatech Waterproofing can install French drains both on the exterior and interior of your building, depending on what area is affected.
