Interior French Drain

Water in Basement? An Interior French Drain and Sump Pump Could be the Answer!

Water is one of nature’s most powerful forces! Once it makes its way into your basement, it’s there to stay. More than an inconvenience, water in your basement:

  • Damages your walls and foundation, lowering the value of your home.
  • Destroys items in storage, everything from paper records to heirlooms you’ve packed away.
  • Encourages the growth of dangerous mold.

Don’t wait until its too late. An interior French Drain and basement sump pump could be the answer. If your home’s foundation is built on cinder block walls, water could be filling up the hollow spaces inside those blocks before finding a way into your home.

It’s simple. Our experienced crews dig a trench along the inside walls of your basement. Weep holes are drilled into the base of the walls to release built up water pressure. A perforated pipe is placed in the trench to direct the water toward a sump pump, installed at the lowest end of the French Drain system. The sump pump pumps the water out of the basement.

The entire installation is sealed beneath high-strength concrete, making it very important that the job is done right the first time.

Is a French Drain the Same as Waterproofing?

A French Drain system is technically different from waterproofing. It is a Water Management system, taking water and handling it in a way that prevents damage to your basement foundation, walls, floor, and belongings.

Interior French Drains are so effective that, once installed, you can be confident in putting your basement space to better use. You might even consider basement remodeling.

Interior French Drains and Sump Pumps increase the value of your home and come with transferrable warranties, giving you the assurance that your investment is truly worthwhile.
