Do I Need to Install a Drain in Cumming?
Are you noticing surface water collecting in your yard, or does your drive or walkway flood every time it rains? If you are experiencing lawn or mulch wash out after heavy rains, or have pooling around building structures, you might want to install a French drain or trench drain, which will provide a channel for rainwater to flow through in the direction of your choosing. Adding a Cumming French drain will protect your home from unwanted water and keep your lawn from washing away.
Trench Drains and Channel Drains In Cumming
While French drains deal with water issues that are below the surface, trench drains divert water away from a surface. Trench drains, also known as channel drains, are lined with concrete and are sloped away from buildings to divert water. Trench drains are often used to manage rain water, especially where there are few opportunities for absorption into the ground, such as around pool decks, parking lots, driveways and walkways. There are many applications for trench drains for commercial properties in the area, and they even work well in multi-level structures.
