Trench Drain Benefits

Trench Drains VS French Drains

If you need the effectiveness of an external drain, you’ll need to choose between a trench drain and a French drain.

Both options redirect water away from your home and towards a drainage field or septic tank. The major difference is that a trench drain redirects surface water while a French drain Pittsburgh redirects ground water.  

A trench drain is like a ground-level gutter. We dig these trenches where water collects, such as a driveway or underneath an un-guttered roof. The excess water runoff is collected in the trench drain and redirected away from the home. Trench drains can be lined with a variety of materials to prevent water from absorbing into the ground. They’re often grated on top to prevent blockage from rocks.

A French drain Pittsburgh works underground. First, we dig a trench at the foot of your foundation. The trench is filled with rocks and pebbles to filter out gravel and dirt, and a pipe sits at the bottom. These plastic, PVC, or ABS pipes are buried in the ground along the perimeter, and they contain small perforations that allow water inside. A French drain collects groundwater and pumps it away (or uses gravity, if you’re on an incline).

Premier Waterproofing Group completed the job efficiently and effectively following closely with the demands of my... structural engineer’s report to secure my basement foundation. PWG made sure the job was completed within a constrictive time line with weather factors to assure the job was done correctly in time for my closing. The owner responded quickly to my questions and kept me informed on every step of the project. I highly recommend Premier Waterproofing Group for your foundation reinforcement needs!read more

I recently purchased an investment property with extensive water issues in the basement so I reached out to Jed and his... team at Premier Waterproofing. He fit me into his schedule as soon as possible for a walk through of the property and put my mind at ease immediately as he started explaining their process and what would need to be done. His team started the project a couple days later and even after running into a few unforeseen circumstances they finished on schedule and budget. When they ran into the changes in the project they promptly reached out to me and explained the situation they encountered. Premier will be the only company I call from now on for any other wet basements or foundation issues that I encounter on future projects. I look forward to working with Premier again in the near more

Great company to work with. The crews that came to do the work were great guys. The owner, Jed, took the time to... explain what was happening with water infiltration and what was needed to fix the issue permanently. He also noticed several other issues in basement that were not water related and took care of those as well! Problems more

We were having major problems with sewer smell in our house! The basement was damp and we started getting water all... through the basement. I called Premier Waterproofing and immediately was connected to Jed. He arrived at our home and started to diagnose the problem. It wasn’t easy! Jed and his awesome crew finally figured out that there were leaks coming from our well and septic system! It was a major problem. Jed explained everything to me in detail and exactly how to fix it. This crew really knows their craft! I followed them every step of the way and actually learned a lot! They fixed the problems and we now have a dry basement. Jed was honest about everything and the price was something we could afford. I recommend this company for any plumbing problems as they truly are a business you can count on. There’s no question we will use them for any and all plumbing problems. They are also installing lines for obtaining city water and eliminating our well which has also caused problems. Thank you Jed and crew for all your hard work. Our family surely appreciates all you’ve done!read more

Actual customer testimonial here. I spent two decades dealing with water coming into my basement after every hard rain.... I tried everything to fix it. These guys solved the problem in two days.Since they left I have not had a drop of water in the basement and we have had some serious rain the past month. They were professional, fairly priced, and worked their butts off. I can not recommend them highly enough. They did exactly what they more

We took more than a solid month interviewing 15 of the area's leading basement waterproofing companies. These numerous... company's prices and services ranged all over the board, as did their proposed solutions and recommendations.Premier Waterproofing, however, came in with a customized and tailored program specifically for our needs. They were also one of the most cost-effective companies. Ultimately, Premier waterproofing won out on this complex job, and are we glad they did.All the workers on each crew were highly professional, skilled, and pleasant to deal with. They showed up on time, covered everything to contain the Dust expertly, and constructed protective plastic chambers to further contain all the Dust.Premier Waterproofing did everything as promised, and then proceeded to exceed expectations by doing additional work beyond what they were contracted for. The quality of their work surpassed even our expectations, and other professionals have been in the house afterwards and said this is one of the nicest jobs they have seen.Then without our having to ask, before they left they cleaned up the whole area professionally, leaving it better than it was when they arrived. We did not have to clean up a thing, or even have to dust or sweep up after they left. They had done it all for us.We could not be happier, and will recommend them strongly to everyone. We absolutely made the right decision, and so will more
