French Drain System Installation in Chicago, IL

Are water problems finding their way into your home? Are you dealing with a wet basement floor, flooding in your yard or along walkways, drainage problems, or a musty smell in your basement or crawl space? A number of solutions are out there to deal with groundwater issues, but one of those solutions is known as the French drain.

A French drain is a draining system that involves digging a trench in your yard at a slope to get water to move away from your house. Like a Pied Piper for unwanted groundwater, the force of gravity does the work of coaxing excess water away from your house. A French drain system can be lined or filled with gravel. Some French drains also involve the use of a perforated pipe. Unfortunately, French drains are not always effective at keeping water out of basements, especially for homes without a sloped yard. Some people don’t like the look of a French drain around their house.

How Efficient Are French Drains?

French Drain

French drains are only effective for a short period of time. In the long-term, French drains fail to serve their purpose. French drains get clogged with various particles that enter the drainage system along with water. Particles like small rocks, sod, debris, dirt, mud, and other small objects found in the ground clog the drains altogether. There are various reasons as to why French drains are not very efficient for the money they cost.

Tiring & Destructive

French drain installation is a very extensive process, requiring a great deal of labor. Moreover, when a French drain gets clogged, the reinstallation process requires excavating the lawn or yard again for the drain to be taken out. This process destroys the landscape, like gardens or any other decorations that might be there.
