French Drain Systems

Improper drainage is the main cause for foundation failure throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth Area. Our soils are 30%-40% expansive to the contraction rate and when proper drainage is in place can limit those percentages and overall movement on the property. The best drainage solution for a property is a French Drain System, our FDS are dug below the grade beam of the structure so we’re not just gathering surface water but as well as ground water to keep the solis around your property at bay and not over saturated. We fill the top portion of the FDS with 1in-1 1/2in river rock to allow appropriate water flow into the drain pipe while keeping grass/brush/debris out and from clogging the system.
