Top Quality French Drain Installation Serving Both San Francisco & San Mateo Counties

32 years excellence

Are your lawns soggy? Do you have standing water around your foundation? Is there water leaking through or under your foundation? Do you have white foam growing out of your foundation? If so, a French Drain System may be exactly what you need! One of the most frequently seen defects when buying a home is damage caused by poor drainage. They’re not immediately obvious to the naked eye. When left unattended, a simple fix can turn into a costly repair.

Let us help

Basement flooding or water flowing through and under your foundation can quickly turn into mildew, mold, or even worse, major property damage. Flooding and moisture can turn a little rainwater into a big problem! For most of us, our home is our most prized and valued possession so it’s only right that we do everything possible to protect it. One way to protect your valuable San Francisco Bay Area home is to call Universal Home Improvement, Inc. for a French Drain installation.

What Are French Drains?

Simply put, a French Drain is a waterproof trench filled with gravel. It has a perforated pipe at the bottom that’s meant to collect underground water. French Drain Systems are used to redirect both ground and surface water away from your home to the street, catch basin, or storm drain. Unlike Surface Drains, French Drains, and Foundation Drains collect water underground. They divert water around your home or building to protect your foundation against major cracks and costly repairs.

Hey Universal,

Being that I live in San Francisco and my driveway slopes down towards my house makes me so happy you installed the Channel Drain. My garage now stays dry all winter long.

Thank you Universal

What a great idea to install the channel drain in front of my garage. For years I had to use sandbags to keep the water out of my garage but it still seeped in. I am also glad you installed that Zoeller sump pump it’s quiet and always works.

Hi Mark,

I wanted to tell you I’m so glad you installed that Channel Drain in front of my garage. The last good rain we had there wasn’t water pouring under the garage door anymore, hallelujah!
