French Drain

What is a French drain?

A French drain is an outdoor piping system, installed in order to create a drainage path for water that must essentially be disposed of at a safe distance from a building or a house.

In other words, a French drain acts as a protector against water seepage, and helps to control levels of indoor moisture and humidity.

Are you in need of a French drain?

The French drain is recommended for buildings located in wetlands, that is to say, land area saturated by water either permanently or seasonally.  

Water infiltration issues can lead to major complications such as: a persistent moisture; the formation of mold and of mineral efflorescence; and the formation of fissures, which are caused by water pressure applied on the foundations of the building.

If you have already proceeded with the installation of an outdoor French drain and water continues to seep in: an interior French drain might be your best option.

The installation of an interior drain involves the cutting of the concrete slab in order to proceed with the installation of a drainage system below the foundation walls, therefore collecting and distributing water away.

How to prevent common problems encountered with French drains?

In order to prevent common issues related to French drains, which are, clogging and flood damage, it is advisable to hire a professional to carry out an annual examination, and to proceed with the maintenance of your drain.

Ensure that your French drain is not cluttered with sediments and debris by working with a professional.

While most of the external French drains can operate for 30 to 40 years, it is substantial that you proceed with frequent examinations. To find out if your French drain is still in good condition, be on the lookout for foul odors and humidity levels inside your house or your building.

In case of an emergency, Fraka Décontamination strives to meet your needs as quickly as possible. Our team of experts work according to strict industry procedures.

Foundation waterproofing

What is foundation waterproofing?

The land surrounding your building naturally has high humidity due to snowmelt, to precipitation, or simply because your building is located near a flood zone.

Thus, it is important to ensure a proper sealing of your foundation in order to protect the walls against moisture.

Why you should proceed with foundation waterproofing

Several factors come to influence a building’s capacity to preserve dry foundations. Among them: the slopes of the land which can alter the flow of water, the depth of the foundations, as well as the quality of the concrete.

Waterproofing an existing foundation allows the long-term resistance of the concrete slab. The impervious membrane will prevent the eventual crumbling of the concrete, help to reduce moisture concentrations in the basement, and also contribute to avoiding other moisture-related problems, as well as future water seepage.

What is the process behind foundation waterproofing?

The installation of a waterproof membrane usually comes alongside with the installation of a drain system (French drain).

Once the bottom sides of the foundation are cleared out by means of excavation and after having located the flow of water: experts will proceed to the coating of the well-dried walls with a bituminous waterproofing substance. Once coated, a membrane will be installed and the excavation will be backfilled to its original state.

In case of an emergency, rely on our team of experts to assist you in waterproofing your foundations.
