Ann Arbor, Michigan, is in proximity to several major lakes. So when it floods, Ann Arbor and surrounding areas can become subject to flooding. But it doesn't take lake water to flood your yard. Sometimes flooding can develop in your yard due to improper grading or poor water channeling. As a result, your backyard could quickly become a marsh. A solution to a damp backyard is a French drain installation in Ann Arbor.
French drains help channel water away from the base of the foundation so that to help keep them dry. Water buildup around a foundation can seep in and cause flooding in a crawl space or basement. This water buildup can cause a mold problem and even encourage pests.
Our French drain installation is a powerful tool to keep basements and crawl spaces free and clear of excess water. Through buried piping funneled through the yard, excess water is carried away from the house, typically to the street.
