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.
