French Drain Installation

French Drain Installation Contractors NJ:

French drains help protect areas of your property from stormwater and groundwater intrusion, or to distribute water in a septic drainfield.

The drain consists of a trench filled with gravel or rock. Inside, a perforated pipe moves water away from the area. The gravel size often varies from course on the inside to finer on the outside, helping to prevent soil from clogging the drain. The trench is generally sloped at about 1″ per 8 feet.

French drain installation can divert excess water into low-lying areas, drainage ditches, dry wells, or nearby streets.

You may want to consider hiring a french drain contractor to install a french drain for your property if:

  • You’re having problems with surface water, like a soggy lawn or washed-out driveway
  • You have frequent water intrusion into your basement
  • You’re building a new retaining wall on a hillside

NJ French Drain Replacement Contractors:

There are several types of French drains, where are used for slightly different situations:

  • Curtain French drains. A curtain French drain, also known as a “shallow French drain,” uses a perforated pipe surrounded by gravel. The gravel or other aggregate material is open so that it collects water. It’s then covered up with soil, often with grass or vegetation above it. Curtain French drains are often as shallow as 2 feet. In areas where the drain passes near trees or shrubs, to reduce the risk of root infiltration.
  • Deep French drains. Also known as a “footing drain,” this type of French drain installation helps keep water out of your basement. The drain runs around the perimeter of the house, intercepting water before it can get into the basement. These are often installed during construction, but they can also be added later by a French drain contractor. This can be a complicated process, since tall basement walls may require extensive digging to access the footing level. Landscaping, decks, and walkways may also be disrupted, adding to the total cost. In some cases, the French drain may need to be paired with a sump pump basin, if there isn’t enough slope.
  • Interior French drains. Interior French drains also intercept water before it can enter your basement. To install one in an existing building, interior basement walls may need to be removed. The water generally flows into a sump pump basin, where the pump can send it in to the yard or storm drain.

French Drain Repair in NJ

Need a French drain contractor for repairs? At A1 Sewer & Drain Services, our experienced French drain contractors can fix almost any common problems, helping you keep your basement or drain field free from water intrusion and resulting damage.

French drain cleaning for clogs and obstructions is a common service that we provide. Tree roots, clay, soil, gravel, and other materials from outside the drain pipe can infiltrate a French drain, making it less effective at rerouting water. Annual french drain cleaning can help prevent major clogs that could lead to basement water damage.

To clean the drain out, French drain contractors will often use an electric sewer snake. These augur-like devices can enter through the drain opening, breaking up debris so that it can be washed out of the drain pipe.
