When seasonal rains soak your home, water can seep in and wreak havoc. Rotting wood and damaged foundations are major problems that require expensive repairs. Prevention is the best cure! Installing a drain is a simple way to protect your home from flooding.
What Is a French Drain & Trench Drain
A French drain is a long trench filled with gravel and sometimes piping, which functions as a channel to direct water away from your house. Its design is unobtrusive and allows runoff to seep back into the ground, helping to keep your yard and garden healthy.
While French drains address water that is underground, a Trench Drain or Channel Drain addresses water on the surface. A trench drain is installed on a slope so it can take advantage of gravity. Steel grates are used to cover the drain to keep it getting clogged with debris like leaves and sticks. You can even get decorative steel grates that complement the style of your home. While some people choose to dig their own trenches for drains installed in the ground, you can save yourself from causing a potential back problem by having Capital Concrete Cutting Inc. dig your trench. When you need a drain installed in concrete, you will need a professional like us to help. French Drains and Trench Drains are often found:
- On concrete patios
- Around the exterior of the home
- Around pools
- Creating a Rain Garden
