Home Drainage Systems to Protect Your Property & Foundation
The EPS aggregate in EZFlow Drain Systems takes the place of gravel usually found in drainage applications, resulting in savings of time, labor, and transportation costs. With EZflow, there is far less risk of tree and other landscape damage than with conventional systems, AND there’s no gravel to clean up! And, since it is so light in weight and easy to handle – a 10 foot section of EZflow equals 1/4 ton of gravel. Water travels through EZFlow 5 times faster than through gravel.

Retaining Wall Drains
Our drain systems work just as well for protecting retaining walls as they do for protecting foundations.
Our drain contractors in West Virginia and Southern Ohio can ensure that your foundation drainage system is up to code and protects your home.
Why It Is Important to Have Drainage for a Foundation
- Prevent Mold: Mold formation can begin in a basement, crawlspace, or foundation area due to the humidity increase from the presence of water.
- Prevent Rot: Wood in the floors or walls will begin to rot if groundwater seeps into the foundation or basement.
- Water Leaks: Water pooling in the basement or foundation walls will cause damage to a home's structure if left unaddressed.
- Foundation Cracks: If groundwater causes soil expansion and contraction near a home, this can create pressure that will crack a foundation.
