French Drains & Basement Drainage Systems
What is the number one threat to your home’s health and longevity? Moisture! Unmitigated moisture can wreak havoc on your foundation, crawl space, and interior spaces, often showing up as mold growth, rotting wooden beams or joists, insect infestations, structural damage, and other hazards. Thankfully, there are ways you can protect your property in Nashville, and basement drainage systems from United Structural Systems offer a great solution. These systems might include French drain installation, which is a different concept than a trench drain, to keep your Nashville home dry and free of mold, pests, and other moisture-related problems. We also have other waterproofing solutions to safeguard your home. You deserve to have peace of mind knowing your home, belongings, and family are out of harm’s way.
There are many different types of drainage options out there and we work a lot with drain tiles, which are also known as French drains, typically installed around the perimeter of your basement. These French drains, unlike the standard trench drain, capture and move water towards your sump pit, where your sump pump can easily remove it to the outside. USS also provides other interior and exterior basement waterproofing, for a comprehensive water mitigation strategy. When it comes to French drain installation in Nashville, it’s best left to the experts. This is not a good DIY project, since there are so many factors to consider when designing a drainage system. But you can count on our team to properly assess things like your soil conditions, slab grade, footing type, and other considerations, in order to customize the ideal drainage plan for your property.
