French Drain Installation in New Jersey - Services You Can Trust

Protect Your Home with the French Drain Installation Experts

Are you frustrated with constant basement and crawl space flooding? French drain installation can help! 

 With a free consultation and expert installation, Basement Waterproofing Solutions can ensure you never have to worry about flooding, water seepage, foundation cracking, or musty odors again.

What is a French Drain?

Installing French drains in your NJ property requires trench work, gravel layering, and perforated piping that collects groundwater and surface water. This advanced engineering solution will ensure all excess moisture is diverted away so that you can keep your home safe from flooding without any hassle or stress.

We install French drains by positioning the piping in a sloping trench and coating it with gravel. The gravel will filter any water that usually finds its way into your basement and funnel it into the pipe away from your property.

 It’s an innovative, cost-effective way of combatting exterior water drainage problems.

Interior French Drain System

One of the downsides of an exterior French drain in NJ is that mud and silt can block the pipes anytime. If we determine your home is at risk of this, we can install interior French drain systems.

The difference is that the pipe is installed around the perimeter of your basement using 3/4 inch-crushed stone, with the system terminating at a sump pit.

 Many homeowners prefer interior systems because the work is less labor-intensive and disruptive. Additionally, the chances of your French drain experiencing a blockage are far lower.

What to Expect

Are you ready to make basement flooding a thing of the past?

 Our team of experienced experts has provided reliable basement waterproofing services and installed French drain systems for over half a century. Here’s what you can expect during the process.

  • We begin by inspecting your home to determine your best system. Generally, we suggest that exterior French drains should only be used in homes on a hill.
  • Once the work begins, we’ll cover your belongings with plastic sheeting and install HEPA filters to prevent dust infiltration.
  • Your contractor will drill weep holes into each mortar joint and CMU block before placing a bed of bluestone gravel in a trench.
  • Next, the four-inch solid ADS triple wall perforated pipe will be installed, with the pipe pitched toward the sump pump and pit. Another coating of gravel will cover the pipe and fill the trench.
  • We’ll install a poly drainage board at the bottom of the CMU block and over the trench, followed by a vapor barrier.
  • Finally, we’ll ensure that your sump pump is fully installed and checked before concreting over the gravel.

 If you’re wondering whether you could benefit from a French drain, here are some of the leading signs:

Is French drain installation worth it?

Your basement is one of the most vulnerable areas of your home. If left unattended, water damage can erode the foundations of your home, which can cost tens of thousands of dollars to repair. Moreover, high humidity and pooling water can lead to mold growth, harming long-term health.

A French drains a long-term investment that pays for itself in comfort and cost.

    Excellent service. This was the second time we hired them. Our French Drain system was seriously damaged by a flooring contractor. They performed the repair in less than a day at a fair price. Highly recommend.
    Our basement had block and mortar cracks in areas along two walls. Never had water penetration, nor bowing. Called three foundation repair companies for their assessment & solutions. Was not comfortable with their input: seemed excessive and didn't solve the aesthetics issues. Then, I hired a structural engineer, who told me what was really needed, and asked him for names of people he trusts. I called Sal.
