• Sound Glamorous

While the term French drain might sound glamorous, this powerful drainage method effectively takes its name from Henry F. French, a 19th-century American lawyer and assistant U.S. Treasury secretary. French popularized the use of this drainage style to such an extent that it took on his name. If you have issues with excess basement moisture or flooding, find out how these drains work and discuss with your Pro Drainage Solutions 888-348-7353 if this is a drainage solution that is right for you.

• Subterranean System

French drains are a subterranean system of perforated pipes that direct water away from your building's foundation, either using the organic slope of the land or a sump pump to redirect the water. They are constructed by digging a trench, installing a perforated pipe, and layering gravel, sand, or incredibly strong synthetic fabrics (known as geotextile or landscaping textile) around the pipe to keep undesirable debris from lodging in the perforations or entering and clogging the pipe itself.

Understanding the French Drain

Pro Drainage Solutions offers these drains systems to disallow water seeping down your basement walls or up through the seams in the floor, rather water is funneled into the drain and deposited away from the building. French drains are one of the most practical forms of basement waterproofing on the market.

French Drain Exterior Draining System

There are two basic styles of French drain Systems Pro Drainage Solutions provide in Maine. The first is an exterior draining system. This indicates that the trench for the pipe is dug just outside the foundation wall so that it drains and redirects water totally from the outside of your building. This type of French drain can work very well, but does have a big downside. If it needs service, the whole area around your home will have to be excavated.

French Drain Interior Draining System

The second style is interior that Pro Drainage Solutions wants to mention. This means that the trench for the pipe is dug along the inside perimeter. If we're working with new construction, this should be done prior to basement finishing. If you need to install a French drain in an established building, the perimeter of the floor will need to be cut and removed down to the footing so that the French drain system can be installed. This drain collects the water from below your foundation before it has a chance to find its way into your property. Internal French drains are usually installed with a sump pump to pump the excess water out of the basement area. Once the whole system is installed, the trench is covered in cement for a smooth finish.
