Have you been noticing standing water or puddles that never seem to drain efficiently throughout your outdoor grounds? Signs like these are serious indications that you need exterior water management! Don’t put this off! Technologically advanced drainage systems, as Infrastructures USA installs with expertise, are critical and necessary in preventing water from accumulating near your foundation and weakening and damaging it.
This also will prevent leaks from developing in your basement or throughout your lower level rooms. An excessive amount of water causes hydrostatic pressure, causing the soil to expand. Clay soil, which is common throughout the seven counties that we serve, expands easily from excessive moisture. When there is excessive moisture in your soil and the soil is expanded, it pushes against your home’s foundation and walls.
This negative situation causes serious structural damage, it weakens your foundation and contributes to aesthetically displeasing discoloring of your concrete and brickwork.

A French drain, commonly known throughout the industry as a dry well, normally uses standard 4″ perforated pipe. The trench that the pipe is laid in is most often filled with gravel or rock and the perforations along the bottom of the hollow pipe swiftly vent and release the water that seeps down through the gravel or rock fill.
Infrastructures USA utilizes the most advanced, state-of-the-art technology to make the traditional French drain system much better and more efficient.
The two drainage systems that are most often used to help eliminate excessive water accumulation and moisture are the French drain and surface drains. Surface drainage removes water that’s on the surface by utilizing the slopes and angles of the land and incorporating drains that carry off the excess water.
Infrastructures USA provides you with a complimentary water management assessment and analysis to determine the drainage system that works best for your particular outdoor environment.
A combo drain is a traditional, commonly-seen roof drain that has an overhang to withstand water accumulation and makes it able to handle excessive rainfall. For this drain type, all hardware is coated to protect against rusting and corrosion. Don’t take water run-off lightly!

Grate drains are most frequently used for basements and rooms below ground level. This is because grate drains permit water to enter them from both the lower floor level and the walls.
Grate drains come in a variety of materials for you to select from, such as plastic, metal, cast iron and stainless steel. No matter where the water is moving towards, a grate drain will collect this excess water and redirect it. This fact is because the grate drain is dual-chambered.
Commonly known throughout the industry as catch basins, the collection boxes are located right below the ground’s surface. Excess water runs off through the grate and is collected into the collection box. The water is then led away by a pipe that’s connected to the collection box.
When you use a sprinkler system and when it is raining outside, water will naturally accumulate and run down the slope of your outdoor grounds. Landscape grading makes certain that you have the proper drains that lead the water away from the foundation of your house.
