French Drain Installation in Knoxville
During periods of extremely heavy rainfall the downspouts on your gutter system take on large volumes of water - if the capacity of the gutters and downspouts can not handle the volume often times overflow will occur. In addition, many yards have grading where water will puddle. Installing a "French drain" can alleviate the pooling effect created during a storm. A French drain is a trench filled with gravel, rock, or containing a perforated pipe that redirects surface water and groundwater away from the home.
At Atlantis Waterproofing we will custom design an effective drainage system that fits the particular nuances of your Knoxville yard. Since every yard is a bit different it is important to ensure the yard drainage system will move water away from your foundation and basement in order to ensure no damage occurs. French drains include a trench, perforated pipe that redirects water efficiently. The trench is filled with gravel or rock so water can move into the pipe and flow smoothly away from a foundation to a proper drainage area.
