What is a French Drain?

A French drain is basically a ditch or trench in the ground that’s filled with gravel and houses a perforated pipe. This serves to redirect water, both under the ground and on the surface, away from your house. The drain will not only protect your home and its foundation from damage caused by constant moisture, but will also decrease the standing water around the outside of your house. This is an effective way to protect your home’s foundation from all of the water that could end up leading to structural issues over time.

Why You Should Install a French Drain?

French drains work so well because they create a path for the water to flow away from your house, protecting it from water damage. The ground around your property will be able to dry quicker with a drain system that is diverting all of the excess water. In addition to installing a French drain, the team at FloGutters can also install a rain barrel if you want to reuse the rainwater runoff from your roof. This is a great way to conserve and reuse water for your landscaping, basically giving you free water to work with.
