At LRE Foundation Repair, we offer the following drainage systems to help protect your yard and your home from excess water damage.
French Drain: A French drain is a large perforated pipe that collects water and disperses it far away from your yard.
We use the EZ-Flow French Drain as it typically outperforms more traditional drains that are built with gravel.
Downspout Drainage: Installing a proper downspout can help prevent your yard from flooding. As your gutters do their job to collect your roof water, they need to connect to a downspout so that the water is properly drained from your yard.
We install the RainChute, RainChute EZ, and LawnSpace Outlet for proper drainage and to help prevent the roof water from flooding your yard.
Trench Drain/Channel Drain: A trench drain is a surface drainage solution that prevents water from collecting at slopes in your driveway, doorways, or stairways. It collects water and properly channels it away from your home.
Catch Basin: A catch basin can be placed in the ground to help eliminate standing water and move the water through to an underground drainage system to improve yard drainage.
Percolation Trench: This type of trench is an excavated trench that is filled with gravel or stone and helps channel storm water runoff far away from your yard to prevent flooding.
LRE Foundation Repair can install a proper yard drainage system to prevent your yard from flooding and to protect your foundation from damage. Many Florida residents have benefited from our services since 1989, and we're ready to help you.
