How French Drain Systems Work
The purpose of a French drain is to capture water and channel it away from your home. It includes a trench that is filled with gravel, which allows the drain pipe to collect all water and channel it away from your home. French drains can be installed either inside or outside your home, and our representatives are happy to work with you to figure out the best solution for your home. No matter where the drain is installed, our team ensures that it is covered and does not disrupt your home’s look.
The Award-Winning WaterGuard® French Drainage System
At MidAmerica Basement Systems, we offer our customers the WaterGuard® drainage system throughout Illinois and Iowa. It is one of the best in the industry and provides the ultimate protection against water damage.
Traditional drainage systems are typically installed outside the home. WaterGuard® is installed underneath the basement floor along the perimeter edge, so you won’t even know it’s there as it constantly protects your home from water intrusion.
- Prevents humidity and debris from entering basement by filling any gaps with a 3/8” wall flange
- Protects concrete block foundation walls from water by drilling deep holes into the block to drain any hollow voids
- •Anti-clog features to avoid mud or other debris from clogging the system to allow water to flow freely
