Water-related issues can wreak havoc on your property, leading to costly damages and potential health hazards. However, a solution that can effectively manage water drainage and prevent such problems is French drain installation.

It is essential to understand the numerous benefits of installing a French drain system and highlight the expertise of Parks’ Waterproofing, a leading provider in the industry.

Effective Water Management

One of the primary benefits of French drain installation is its ability to manage water flow effectively. By directing water away from your property’s foundation, French drains prevent water from accumulating and causing damage.

This feature of French Drains ensures that your basement remains dry and free from potential flooding risks, safeguarding your belongings and creating a healthier living environment.

Protecting Foundation and Landscape

Excessive moisture can weaken the foundation of your property, leading to structural issues. French drains act as a protective barrier, intercepting water before it reaches your foundation.

French Drains aim to divert water to a safe drainage area. Additionally, they help preserve your landscape by preventing soil erosion and waterlogging, ensuring your plants and trees thrive.

Minimizing Erosion and Soil Compaction

Erosion can harm your property, causing soil displacement and loss. French drains effectively control water runoff, minimizing erosion and preserving the integrity of your landscape.

Furthermore, they prevent soil compaction, ensuring it remains healthy and suitable for plant growth.

Improving Soil Drainage

A French drain can significantly improve the situation if you have poorly drained soil. By removing excess water, French drains allow for proper soil aeration, facilitating healthier plant root growth.

This function, in turn, enhances your landscape’s overall health and vitality.

Reducing Mosquito Breeding

Stagnant water is a breeding ground for mosquitoes, which can be annoying and pose health risks.

French drains eliminate standing water, reducing the chances of mosquito infestation and creating a more enjoyable outdoor space for you and your family.

Eco-Friendly Solution

French drains offer an eco-friendly solution for managing water drainage. By re-routing water away from your property, you contribute to conserving local water resources.

Additionally, French drains can be integrated with rainwater harvesting systems, allowing you to utilize collected water for irrigation purposes.

Cost-Effective Investment

French drain installation is a cost-effective investment in the long run. By preventing water-related damages, you save on potential repair costs that could arise from basement flooding, foundation issues, or landscape damage.

It is a proactive measure that provides significant returns on your investment.

I cannot say enough about Jody and his team of guys. Do yourself a favor and call them, but if you have other jobs schedule them last because they will set the bar so high everyone else will fall short. Jody himself came out a few times, and would text and call during the entire job checking in and making sure everything was going well. My house was actually a negative grade and they had to regrade all around the house, install a dehumidifier in the crawl space, installed new gutters and drains in the yard…they did so well I kept adding jobs! I have never come across this level of professionalism in this industry. I would call them again in a heartbeat!

Jody saved us a ton of money by quickly and accurately diagnosing our wet basement issue as simply under-sized gutters. Instead of digging around the foundation and waterproofing, they installed new gutters, downspouts and drain lines, and our basement is now dry. Honest, professional, experienced, reasonably priced - give him a call before you have anyone start a waterproofing jobs you might not need.

Gail & Casey B.

We are pleased with the job at Granite Falls, NC. 5 star! The basement is dry and condensation is gone, bright white covering. The dehumidifier is hard at work, again thank you. The gutters are redirecting the rain waters. God bless you.

We hired Parks’ Waterproofing to address a moisture issue in the basement of our log home in Buck Mountain. We were convinced during our initial meeting with Jody to go with his company based on the Waterproofing Lifetime Guarantee offered and other services his company provides such as hardscaping & landscaping. During the course of our waterproofing project and as we began to experience and appreciate the high quality of workmanship, we solicited Jody for ideas to expand the scope of the work into hardscaping and landscaping. As our confidence in Jody grew, we allowed him to incorporate his vision for our property that included a patio, a fire ring, retaining walls and walkways. His attention to planning and detail were impeccable. His cost-saving ideas were also much appreciated. Just as important to us was the professionalism of his field staff; they were extremely courteous and respectful of our property. The end result is spectacular; the quality of materials used and the fit and finish not only met but exceeded our expectations. We are very pleased with and proud of our new hardscape and landscape features, and of course the waterproofing system is working; keeping our basement dry and devoid of humidity. We recommend Parks’ Waterproofing to anyone.

I would highly recommend Parks' Waterproofing for any work I had for them to do. Jody was good about coming to my home and looking at what was going on with water getting into my basement. Come to find out that had a bad down spout. Jody was good enough to show me this and the problem was an easy fix. Jody made a 40 mile trip and would not let me pay him. Thank you Jody.

Kara M.

We were having water in our basement every time it rained hard. We feared the worst, and called Parks’ Waterproofing for an estimate. After inspecting our basement, Jody told us that the issue was a $10 pipe that we could replace ourselves. He could have tried to sell us an expensive system that we didn’t need but he was honest. We are grateful for this honest business.

As a real estate agent in the Triad, I can tell you that many major issues found in homes originate from improper water management. The first time I met with the Parks' Waterproofing, I could tell that they were the real deal. This team really knows their stuff! Parks' Waterproofing installed their patented, lifetime warranty, free-flowing waterproofing system around the entire perimeter of a family member's house to prevent water under the house, which was causing a huge mold problem. I have also used Parks' Waterproofing to install below grade drainage for my gutter system, plus, adding a catch basin under my deck, and grading. They did an amazing job! 5/5, highly recommended to anyone!

If you are having water problems in your basement or house...CALL PARKS WATERPROOFING! Jody listens, takes detailed notes, then lays out a plan of attack to eliminate the issue. We made the mistake of hiring a General Contractor first because they had the time to come out sooner than Parks. Big mistake that cost my parents a great deal of money. Believe me, wait for Parks. It is worth the wait. Even though Parks was busy, he updated us weekly with a spreadsheet showing us exactly where we were on his list. We never had to call him. After he fixed our problem, which required a great deal of digging and grading, his team came out and landscaped those areas and planted grass seed. My parent's yard has never looked this good. My only complaint is that Jody will not tell me what his seed blend is or sell it to me. JODY, what is your secret??? I highly recommend Parks Waterproofing and on a personal note, Jody is a good man. He actually cares about his customer. Regards, Greg
