French Drain Installation in Northern New Jersey

Standing water around your Bergen County home can do serious damage to your landscape as well as to your home and hinder indoor air quality. Installing a French drain will protect your home from standing water as well as create a pleasant landscape.

Benefits of Installing a French Drain

A French drain is a very practical solution for moving water away from your house. The benefits of a French drain include:

  • Improves Indoor Air Quality: When water seeps into you basement it attracts air pollutants such as mold, mildew and dust mites. A French drain will improve indoor air quality because it moves water away from your home and controls water vapors.
  • Prevents Shifting and Cracking of Your Foundation: Even when water doesn’t seep into your basement, it can still cause damage by sitting up against your foundation and softening your soil. As a result, your foundation will begin to shift and crack. A French drain will protect your foundation from shifting and cracking..
  • Maximizes Your Drainage Options: With a French drain, you can direct the water away from your house to any destination. You can direct the water to the street, but you can also direct it towards a flower bed or garden.
  • Enhances Your Landscape: A French drain is installed in the sub-surface of the ground. This means that you can replant grass over the drain. Along with the drainage options you have, you can complement any landscape design using a French drain.

French Drain Materials and Installation

The materials needed to install a French drain include piping, stone or gravel and landscaping fabric. There are landscaping tools needed as well and that’s why it’s always best to hire a professional landscaper to install your French drain.
