basement waterproofing french drain

Water intrusion is a common problem that many homeowners face with their basements. Foundations naturally sit low to the ground, allowing water to travel into your basement more freely.

While it may be a common issue, water intrusion should never be ignored. If left to sit, water will damage the structural integrity of your home leading to wood rot, decay, and a crumbling foundation. If entirely neglected, this could compromise the entire house. Additionally, excess water can result in mold and mildew growth, leading to air quality issues down the road.

If you constantly endure water intrusion in your basement, it's time to seek out a solution. French drain systems are a common course of action that many homeowners take. Let's examine all of the numerous benefits, as well as how you can schedule your installation today.

Benefits of a French Drain for Your Delaware Home

A French drain is a classic solution to water intrusion and is commonly used by homeowners seeking an affordable, quick fix for their basement. It should be noted that a French drain does not waterproof your home, it simply remedies a bad situation in a functional way. If your basement faces serious water intrusion, you may need more advanced services.

French drains work by diverting excess water to a drainage point. They're usually installed as a trench that runs along the interior border of your basement. This trench will collect the water through perforated tubing and redistribute it outside of the basement, via a sump pump.

This method has many benefits:

  • Quick Installation: A French drain can normally be installed within a week, making it the perfect option for homeowners looking for fast relief.
  • Affordable: The tried and tested method of installing French drain systems means it won't come at a huge price.
  • Simple Materials: Nothing will break down over time due to the simple nature of this installation.
