FRENCH DRAINS

French Drains, often installed near the foundation of a home, are an effective way to channel water away from a home to prevent water damage. They are more effective than surface drains because they are able to collect water over the entire length of the drain opposed to one dedicated area. The force of gravity helps to guide the water along a path to a desired discharge point. More often than not we install a french drain instead of a swale because it is able to mitigate groundwater recharge & standing water much faster.

GRADING

Proper grading slopes away from your home. This slope is imperative to ensure proper drainage of water away from your home’s foundation. Proper grading can prevent leaks, cracks, wood rot, & other major foundation problems.

STORM WATER MANAGMENT

Effective stormwater management reduces the amount of runoff & runoff pollution by slowing runoff & allowing it to soak into the ground slowly. When stormwater stays close to where it falls , less soil erosion occurs & fewer pollutants are carried to surface water. By reducing the speed & amount of water running to streams & other bodies of water, stormwater management helps prevent excessive erosion. Stormwater runoff is the main cause of surface water pollution. Slow the flow!

FOUNDATION DRAINS

Foundation drainage problems lead to millions of dollars in damage for homeowners every year. Water always takes the path of least resistance through the ground & often times, your foundation! Foundation drains attract water in the soil around your home & property, collect it, & then the water is carried away from your home, preventing flooding & residual water damage. 
 

EXTERIOR WATERPROOFING 

Exterior water proofing is a preventative measure to keep water from entering into your home’s basement/ crawl space. Exterior waterproofing methods control water that enters your home & works to prevent it from entering your home in the first place. Choosing to waterproof the exterior of your home will protect the structural integrity & prevent dampness, mold, & mildew. This is a life long solution worth the investment!
