How French Drains Work
If your home sits on a hill, water may flow downhill and away from your foundation. But if your yard is relatively flat, you need to carve a channel that leads water away from the house or to relieve water pressure in areas with high water tables.
French drains do just that. The concept involves removal of soils in specific areas and replacing that newly formed channel with filter fabric, perforated pipe, and drain rock to control the flow of water. The Perma-Dry French drain system diverts the water far away from the foundation or prevents the build-up of water in your basement or crawl space.
Why do you need a French drain? Simple—it keeps your home safe and dry. Additionally, you can:
- Protect your home from structural foundation water leaks.
- Prevents the build-up of water in the crawl space.
- Relieves the high water table under the basement floor.
- Diverts water away from sensitive areas around your home prone to washing out (yards, driveways, play areas)
- Creates a dryer healthier living space less prone to mold and mildew.
