Buying a home in NJ with a French drain? Here’s what you need to know

When looking for a home in New Jersey, it’s important to inspect the basement as thoroughly as the rest of the home and find out what waterproofing and flood prevention systems are in place. One popular system you may come across is known as a French drain.

What is a French drain?

This is a system developed by Henry French to quickly and effectively move ground and surface water away from a building and it’s foundations in order to prevent water damage. They can also be used near retaining walls to relieve pressure from built-up groundwater and to distribute water into appropriate outlets.
