The beauty of French drains is that, with proper placement and installation, they can resolve a myriad of water issues. They work to divert excess water during heavy rains to more desirable places than against your foundation, into your basement, or carrying away your topsoil. The process of installing French drains involves assessing the property to determine where to put the trench so that it captures the rainwater and takes it where it should go. Once the location is determined, the trench is dug and the pipe is laid in it. It is then covered, usually with gravel so that water runs into the trench.
Customer service is exceptional.
