Do you want extra assurance that your home’s foundation will stay leak-free? Patriot Gutters LLC can help you preserve your foundation with the installation of a French drain. This exterior drainage system is specially designed to direct water away from your home and prevent its re-entry. Also known as a perimeter drain, sub-surface drain or weeping tile, the basic concept remains the same. It’s a trench that houses a pipe, and the trench is then filled with and surrounded by rocks and gravel. Once it’s set up, both surface water and groundwater will flow away from your home through the trench. If necessary, it can also be perforated for quick draining.
French drains come in a multitude of shapes and sizes, depending on how much runoff or groundwater it needs to handle. Based on your gutters, lawn gradient, rainfall, the water table around your home and other outlying factors, your Patriot Gutters LLC expert can help you determine the best kind of French drain for your property.
