French Drain - Hydrostatic Pressure Relief System
How To Fix a Leaky Basement

French Drain Contractor Long Island, NY

A French Drain is an excellent way to keep water from penetrating a basement area.

The perimeter of the basement floor is excavated and the resulting trench. Any water permeating the outer wall then drops into the trench, flows to a low point, and is pumped out using a sump pump = dry basement!

You may not know this, but there is water in the ground everywhere, even in dry areas. When heavy rains occur, the water is absorbed into the soil. When the local water table begins to rise, hydrostatic pressure against your foundation from below forces the excess water into the basement and creates leaks wherever possible to escape.

In the long run, E & M Waterproofing is your Dry Basement Contractor for NYC and all of Long Island!
