Curtain Drains

At Robin's Nest, I specialize in installing Curtain Drains to effectively manage and redirect unwanted water away from your property. Curtain drains, also known as French drains, are essential for preventing water accumulation and protecting your home and landscape from water damage.

What is a Curtain Drain?

A curtain drain is essentially a trench filled with gravel covering a perforated pipe that acts like a gutter system to remove unwanted water from your property. The trench is lined with filter fabric to ensure that the perforated pipe remains free of clogs from dirt and silt over the years, ensuring long-term effectiveness and durability.

When You Might Need a Curtain Drain

You might need a curtain drain if you have:

  • Pooling Water: Areas of your property where water tends to pool, creating muddy, unusable spaces.
  • Basement Water Issues: Water issues in your basement. Curtain drains work great in conjunction with your home’s footing drains to keep your basement dry.
  • Protecting Structures: A need to remove water away from retaining walls and driveways to prevent structural damage and maintain the integrity of these features.

My Curtain Drain Installation Process

  1. Assessment: I begin with a thorough assessment of your property to determine the specific areas where water management is needed and to design an effective curtain drain system.

  2. Planning: Based on the assessment, I develop a detailed plan for the trench location, depth, and length, ensuring optimal water redirection away from your home and critical areas.

  3. Excavation: Using precise excavation techniques, I dig the trench to the required specifications, ensuring a proper gradient for effective water flow.

  4. Installation: The trench is lined with filter fabric to prevent clogs, then filled with gravel and the perforated pipe is installed. The pipe is covered with more gravel and then with soil to blend seamlessly with your landscape.

  5. Testing and Final Touches: After installation, I test the system to ensure it effectively redirects water. Final touches include restoring the surface and ensuring the area looks clean and natural.
