FRENCH DRAIN INSTALLATION & REPAIR SERVICES TORONTO
A french drain, also known as a weeping tile, drain tile, or a trench drain is a trench filled with rock or gravel and a perforated pipe that could be either solid or corrugated. They’re primarily used to prevent external water from damaging or penetrating your home’s foundation and are an excellent way to divert water from your home. French drains are installed and designed in a way to tackle a little problem area or to wrap around the entire house. If your home is at the bottom of a hill or you also get heavy rainfalls, then a draining system is a substantial way to protect your crawl space or basement from flooding.
When installed properly and with the appropriate substances, french drains will safeguard your house for years to come. Improper installation can result in problems and may even make things worse. We make sure to use materials that will stand the test of time plus whatever nature can throw at it.
