French Drains in Union, KY

What is a French Drain?

French drains are an outdoor drainage solution consisting of a perforated pipe buried beneath loose pebbles. The basic idea is that, since water will always seek the path of least resistance, this apparatus is a straightforward method for protecting foundations or other sensitive areas in your property from flooding during heavy rains. 

Do I Need French Drains?

Standing water can destroy your home from the ground up. If the ground under your home is chronically wet, you can expect the resulting mold and mildew to cause issues with your air quality, as well as your foundation. 

If the ground in the crawl space under your home is persistently damp, a deep French drain around the perimeter of your property can be an effective solution. Although sometimes an interior drain is both more affordable and more effective.

If your yard remains soggy long after a rain, you may want to look into getting a French drain to help you better enjoy your property, and avoid future frustrations. 

Or maybe you’re installing a retaining wall on a slope, and want to prevent water from pooling at the base or flowing towards your foundation. A French drain behind the wall should do the trick.
