French Drain System - Exterior Drain Tile

The French Drain System, otherwise known as Exterior Drain Tile, is a common drainage system used in a variety of climates to prevent ground water and surface run-off from damaging foundations, potentially leading to interior moisture issues. The French Drain System is basically a trench that is dug around the exterior foundation; perforated hollow piping is laid in the bottom of the trench and is then covered with gravel or rock. The rock acts as the system's first line of defense, redirecting surface and groundwater away from the foundation. The inlaid piping is the back up, quickly venting any water that seeps down through the rock.

Our team at Rite-Way Waterproofing always evaluates all the areas of your home for current and future water issues. Even if you know your home already has Exterior Drain Tile installed it can sometimes become the culprit of your water issues - improper installation, clogging, or damage from tree roots or driving over it with heavy equipment can lead to poor functioning and water back-up. Fortunately our Rite-Way technicians are experienced and have a keen eye for recognizing when a French Drain System is required or when the current system may be failing.

Contact us for pricing on a French drain for your home or business. We can give you a price/estimate based on the linear footage you provide over the phone. If the pricing is in line with what you are looking to spend then we can send out a professional to walk you through the rest of the process, write up a contract and get your job scheduled to be performed by Rite-Way Waterproofing.
