French Drain Installation

Once the drain is installed, the area is backfilled and the system is left alone unless it clogs.


Once completed, the area, save for a 2 in (5.1 cm) gap around the edge, is concreted over. This gap exists to allow water in from the foundation walls. This can be installed very quickly—one to two days by an experienced crew. The system is easy to maintain once installed.

What Does it Cost For Drainage & Water Management in Dallas, TX?

In the Dallas area, the average project cost starts at about $5,000.

Most Dallas homeowners simply need gutters and downspouts that work, coupled with a french drain system to address problem areas. If water gets trapped underneath your pier and beam home, interior drainage and a sump pump to discharge the water is often recommended.
