The French drain is a great invention, designed to solve a problem that plagues many Denver homes. Particularly if your house has a basement, it is worth your while to have a plumbing expert inspect your property to see if a French drain can benefit you. Here are the basics on what a French drain is and how it works.
Basement Water Dangers
One of the greatest hidden dangers to a house is standing water against its basement or crawlspace wall. To you, this problem might just look like an inconvenience, with small puddles left near your house after a rainfall. But beneath the surface, that water could be causing moisture damage to the walls supporting your home’s structure. In time, cracks and small holes will appear. You may even get standing water inside your basement itself, resulting in dreaded mold and mildew growth. In order to keep your family safe and avoid expensive repairs later, you should seek to get water away from your house as soon as you are aware of the problem.
Help with Planning
At Plumbline Services, we have been dealing with basement moisture problems in the Denver area for years. Our experts can quickly size up your home’s needs and give you convenient, up-front pricing on all service costs. In many cases, a French drain can protect your home with a minimum of expense and disruption to your property.
How a French Drain Works
A French drain is simply a carefully positioned bed of small rocks, located just under the surface of your yard. The bed of rocks slopes to an appropriate drainage area, directing water away from your house quickly during rainfall. The drain is invisible above ground, and your yard will look even better than before, due to the absence of standing water. This low-tech, low-cost solution is far preferable to the mold removal and foundation repair services that water damage requires.
While many drainage solutions entail expensive landscaping and significant alteration to your property, a French drain is very simple to install.
