Maintaining proper drainage at the perimeter of your foundation can prevent many ways of foundation damages.
Proper Soil Grading. Grading will help to channel water away from the building. Irrigation sprinklers should be pointed away from foundation walls.
Drainage Solutions. Surface water should not be allowed to pool near the foundation. Damage to the concrete, settlement and mold are some of the potential problems that can come up for buildings with poor drainage.
In addition to functional gutters and downspouts, some of the ways to direct water away from the building foundation are the installation of area drains, catch basins or trench drains. We can provide you with the right solutions to keep water where it belongs.
French Drains. French drains are used to attract, collect and divert underground water away from areas which could be damaged by the presence of water.
A typical French Drain is constructed by: Excavating a trench strategically placed and filling trench with ¾" gravel around a centered 3" PVC perforated pipe. Additionally, all gravel is to be wrapped with "Soil Separator" fabric to prevent soil particle accumulation in French Drain. French drains are also used behind retaining walls to relieve ground water pressure.
Sump Pumps. A sump pump may be homeowners' first line of defense against water accumulation at areas such as a basement or crawlspace where it can cause damage.
We offer different solutions, using different drainage components, such as: pop-up drain, channel drain, round grates drain, catch basin drain, atrium grates drain, different pipe drain, french drain, square grates drain, lawn scape outlet, etc.

Protect your Foundation, Lawn, and Landscape with a Drainage System!
Divert stormwater away from your building’s foundation and can be installed in any area on your property that collects water. French drains are constructed with a perforated pipe, then gravel and filter fabric surrounds the pipe, similar to foundation drain systems.
Are used in landscape areas, planter beds, window wells, or where debris like mulch and leaves might clog a flat grate. These grates are engineered to fit various sewer and drain pipes and fittings.
Pop-Up drainage Emitters act as the discharge point of a drainage system, opening easily when needed to allow water to flow freely from the pipe and away from structural foundations. The patented spring-loaded cap opens with the hydrostatic pressure of water flowing through the drain pipe, then closes as the flow diminishes.
Are used in landscape areas, planter beds, window wells, or where debris like mulch and leaves might clog a flat grate. Choose from our wide selection of round, square, poly, or brass atrium grates.
Are connected to storm drainpipes. They are plastic or matel structures (either round or rectangular) with metal grates on top. Catch basins capture debris that could clog the pipes in a drain system.
Are a sustainable solution for stormwater runoff. Used independently or as part of a larger stormwater management system, Flo-Well units collect, retain, and discharge stormwater on-site, offering a gravel-free alternative to a traditional dry well. Units are modular and can be connected in series or stacked to meet a variety of project needs.
Trench drains / Channel Drain
Are used to capture stormwater flowing over a larger area like a driveway. Trench drains convey rainwater to the City’s storm drain system. These garden drains are best for areas such as:
• Garden edges and Garden drainage
• Pedestrian uses
