Charleston French Drain Installation Contractor
A french drain is a trench dug into your yard that will direct water away from your homes foundation that is filled with gravel and crushed rock. The water flows to the french drain in a plastic drain pipe, and is absorbed into the ground through the gravel and crushed rock. The french drain must be dug far enough from your house to prevent any of the water from flowing back towards the foundation or crawl space. Once you have decided to Charleston Deck and Exteriors build a french drain system in your yard to properly drain the water away from your home, the next step is determining where to allow the water to flow. In most cases, the best place to flow the water is toward the front to the street.
