Downspouts & Extensions

During a rain storm that pours 1-inch of rain, 1250 gallons of water fall on the roof of a 2,000-square-foot house. Without proper gutters and downspouts, the water is directed toward the perimeter of your foundation. Downspouts without extensions can deposit large amounts of rainwater in a small and concentrated area. Gutters and downspouts commonly cause problems with both drainage and foundation structures because the landscaping and soil near a house can form a basin for water.

Downspout extensions & rerouting allows water to drain in a controlled manner and away from your home. Downspouts can empty into a subsurface drain or into outlet spreaders & discharge water in a thin layer of a grassy area away from your house foundation.

In many instances, downspout extensions and rerouting are all that is needed to fix your drainage problem.

French Drains

French drains are extremely versatile for solving all kinds of drainage problems, both inside and outside your home. French drains allow water to drain as it moves through soil and gravel. Exterior French drains can be installed around the foundation and tied into the rest of your drainage solution and help decrease the amount of water pooling around the base of your home.

They essentially spread water over a large area through a buried perforated pipe. French drains can either stand alone or be combined with a dry well as a part of a complete underground drainage solution.

Your home may have had a French drain installed when it was built, but it was either incorrectly installed or has deteriorated, and that is causing your drainage problem. French drain materials have evolved over time and we only use the highest quality building materials in ours.
