Once we have determined that French drain installation is the best course of action for your Omaha home or commercial property, we’ll calculate the necessary size and placement of your trench by analyzing your soil conditions, the issue you need resolved and your groundwater and surface water conditions. Then we can begin the installation; excavating soil, compacting and sloping the bottom of your trench, lining the trench with textile and filling it with gravel and a perforated pipe that will quickly direct your surface water and groundwater away from your home. We finish off the drain installation by topping your drain with a permeable material of your choice, such as river rock, soil mix, sand, gravel, pavers or sod. These materials will block solids from entering your French Drain, preventing clogging, while still allowing water to filter through.
