Bonjour, Wet Basement. Meet the French Drain.

Drain System Step 1 Drain System Step 2 Drain System Step 3 Drain System Step 4
Not all wet basement solutions are created equal. How do we know? Meet the StayDry French drain. It's the one that gives other French drains a bad name.

The Hydroflo French drain system—the only one we use at StayDry—is not the box system preferred by companies that cut corners. Here's how we do things:

  • We remove the concrete from the basement floor and dig a large trench
  • Then we install the separating fabric, drain tile, and stone
  • After this, we securely place a diverter on top and bend it near the wall
  • If we're drilling weep holes, we place them at every core and mortar joint to relieve water pressure
  • Finally, we put in new concrete, thoroughly clean up our mess, and do a final walk-through to ensure everything has been done right
