We install a system of pipes, channels, or other structures to control and redirect the flow of excess water away from a property. This is typically done to prevent damage to buildings, landscapes, and other structures caused by pooling or runoff of water. Drainage systems can also help prevent soil erosion, maintain plant health, and prevent water from pooling in low-lying areas.
There are several types of drainage systems, including surface drainage systems, subsurface drainage systems, and French drains. Surface drainage systems, such as gutters and downspouts, collect and carry water away from the surface of a property. Subsurface drainage systems, such as sumps and drain tiles, collect and direct water from below the surface. French drains are trenches filled with gravel or rock that are used to collect and divert water away from a property.
