How a French Drain Will Help
The French drain helps prevent your foundation from deteriorating by keeping water from around it. When there is too much water around the foundation of your home it will become extremely heavy. The weight of the water starts to affect the soil under the foundation. When the soils gets wet it starts to expand and the soil will start to shift. This is what our contractors hope to avoid by installing a French drain that collects much of the water. It can be very damaging to your foundation and create additional structural problems for your house.
How Are French Drains Installed
Whether you have a pier and beam foundation or a slab foundation, we can install French drains around both of them. Our concrete contractor will dig a trench around the foundation and install a drainpipe inside. When installed on a slab foundation, it will prevent cracking. Since water under your foundation can create hydrostatic pressure, it is necessary to divert some of the water and avoid the pressure that can cause cracks in your foundation. It can also push your slab foundation upward; therefore, installing a French drain is a great way to avoid this from occurring. If you have a pier and beam foundation, we will install the French drain to help prevent water from going into your crawl spaces. The moisture that gets inside your crawlspace can begin to affect your home's foundation and should be avoided when possible. Allowing us to install a French drain today just might be the solution to your foundation issues.
