French Drain Installation in Forth Worth, TX

Solving Your Standing Water Needs

Are you grappling with standing water on your Dallas, Fort Worth property? Is your landscape's beauty being marred by poor drainage? A French drain installation might be the perfect solution for you. At RS Foundations, we specialize in installing French drains, a proven drainage system that can effectively resolve your water issues and protect your home's foundation.

What is a French Drain?

A French drain is a simple yet effective drainage solution. It's a trench filled with gravel or crushed stone and a perforated pipe. This pipe redirects surface water away from your property, preventing water from pooling in your yard and causing foundation issues. This system is handy if your property is prone to flooding or if your ground soil doesn't drain well.

The French Drain Installation Process

Installing a French drain involves several steps:

Site Assessment

At RS Foundations, we prioritize a meticulous approach to French drain design. We start by thoroughly assessing your property, considering factors such as slope, soil composition, and water accumulation patterns. This assessment allows us to identify the source of the drainage problem and determine the optimal location for the French drain installation, ensuring effective water management and addressing your specific needs.

Trench Digging

Next, we dig a trench from the area with standing water to the designated drainage area. The depth and length of the trench depend on your property's specific needs.

Pipe Installation

We then lay a perforated pipe along the trench. The holes in the pipe allow water to enter the system while the pipe transports the water away from your property.

Filling the Trench

Once the pipe is in place, we fill the trench with gravel or crushed stone, exposing a small portion of the pipe. The gravel acts as a filter, preventing soil and debris from entering the pipe.

Surface Restoration

After the French drain is installed, we will restore the surface of your landscape. This may involve laying sod over the drain to blend it with the rest of your lawn.

Dry Well Installation

Sometimes, we may also install a dry well at the end of the French drain. A dry well is a structure that collects water and allows it to slowly seep into the ground, further enhancing your property's drainage.

Protect Your Home's Foundation

A French drain system is not just about resolving water issues; it's about protecting your home's foundation. At RS Foundations, we understand the critical role a well-functioning drainage system plays in maintaining the integrity of your home's foundation. We are committed to providing you with a drainage solution that not only resolves your current drainage problems but also prevents future ones.

"Michael from RS Foundations came to my home in Forney to givr a foundation estimate. I was nervous knowing that these types of repairs can get expensive fast. I was fortunate that I did not need any foundation work, and Michael was completely honest about that fact, and gave me some foundation watering solutions! He was extremely professional and friendly, kept me informed the entire time he was taking measurements. Obviously my situation is a good one, but you can be sure they will be honest with you, which is worth its weight in gold!! Definitely recommend!!"
