FRENCH DRAINS INSTALLATION
They are known by many names (blind drain, land drain, French ditch, sub-soil drain, etc.), but serve the same essential purpose. French drains are constructed in one of two ways; they either contain a trench that is filled with rock/gravel, or consist of a perforated pipe that juts out of the ground at a designated area. Their role is to divert groundwater away from a specific spot, so as to prevent flooding. As one might imagine, they are typically employed in low lying areas or regions prone to high amounts of rainfall; French drains are used in residential and commercial applications, and require perfect placement and construction. Since the main goal is to keep groundwater from penetrating building foundations, the plumbing contractor must know exactly where to position the ditch and/or protruding pipe for maximum drainage effectiveness.
FRENCH DRAINS REPAIRS
There is little room for error in this respect, which is why using the services of a professionally trained plumber like USA Plumbing Plus is highly recommended.
For almost 23 years, we have provided quality French drain construction services to home and business owners throughout the St. Louis area, and employ expertly trained technicians with the knowledge and experience you would expect from a leader in the field. All of our crew members have undergone extensive training and certification, and have worked on and managed hundreds of French drain projects for our residential and commercial customers.
Basement leaks and excessively wet landscapes are a sure sign that your property is having drainage problems, ones that should never be avoided for any reason. For all you know, your foundation could be suffering serious issues; given the right circumstances, too much moisture can be downright catastrophic. If all goes well, meaning our crew does not run into any unexpected surprises on-site, USA Plumbing Plus can usually have a French drain construction project completed in a few days at the latest. Some commercial and industrial properties often require multiple drains, especially if we determine the need for more during the initial assessment. With an average cost of between $900-9,000, French drains certainly are a sizable investment. However, given what is potentially at stake (like a flooded basement or damaged foundation), the future costs could be much, much higher. This is by no means an ultra budget-friendly project; to avoid the hassle that comes with hiring an inexperienced and unqualified contractor, be sure to contact the experts at USA Plumbing Plus as soon as possible. We take our time to make sure every job is completed to perfection, and that our customers are 100% satisfied.
