Yard Drains (French Drains): French drains can not only be installed inside the basement of your home, but they can also be installed on the outside of your home. Exterior French drains simply direct water away from your home which prevents subsurface water from accumulating and adding stress to your foundation causing it to become weak and even cracked. Yard drains are easily and quickly installed by an experienced waterproofing expert and will cause minimal disruption to your lawn and landscape.
Driveway Drains: Driveway drains are another type of drainage, but vary in the fact that they are installed in a driveway. They serve the same purpose as a yard drain by directing water away from the home and towards a drainage area. Driveway drains have metal grates that keep debris, such as leaves and sticks from clogging the drainage pathway. Depending on the path of the water, a driveway drain can be a great, attractive solution to prevent flooding and water damage to the home.
Downspout Lines: Downspout lines or downspout drains connect directly to your home’s downspout and direct water away from the home. If gutters and downspouts are overworked or inadequate for the amount of rainfall, then water will begin to accumulate in one or more areas of the soil causing swelling. This swelling of the soil can affect the stability of the home’s foundation and cause damage. In addition, the subsurface or surface water present may be able to slip in to the foundation through cracks which will cause interior flooding. Installing a downspout line is one preventative option a homeowner can take to prevent water seepage into the home and costly foundation damage. Downspout lines are easy to install and like other exterior waterproofing methods, cause minimal disruption to your home’s yard and landscaping.
