Leslie Cornell Building Restoration Ltd provide solutions for the limitation of damp in old and historic walls in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly. One of these areas maybe a Land Drainage System/French Drain.
The installation of land drains at the base of all external walls has three main functions:
- Rainwater run-off from the wall itself will naturally find its way down to the drainage trench.
- All rainwater from the roof, via gutters and downpipes, will go into the drainage pipe.
- Any water at ground level will find its way into the trench before reaching the base of the wall. Capillary movement of water to the wall base would be negligible.
All land drainage pipes should run to a suitably distanced soak away area.
