Exterior French Drain

French Drains For Both New Construction and Existing Homes

A traditional approach to home water protection is to install a French Drain. With new construction, the drain is installed after your home’s foundation is built, but before it is backfilled.

French drains are simply a water management system comprised of a perforated plastic pipe buried below the frost line and angled so that it captures water moving through the soil and directs it away from your home.

French Drains can be installed around existing homes too, and they can be serviced or renewed after they become clogged and less effective after many years of service.

Today, Interior French Drains are often shown to be less expensive and provide equal or superior results.
