French drains have been in use in Montreal since the 1950s. Back then, they were made of terracotta and had holes in them to allow water to flow out. If you believe that your French drain dates from this period, it may be clogged and the hose rotten.
Today, French drains are made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and are covered with a textile membrane that traps dirt. To prevent problems due to strong rainfall and snow melt, make sure your French drain meets current building-code requirements. Cam Construction will be happy to install it for you.
Don’t wait for a backflow of water before taking action.
Cam Construction is one of the few companies in its field that offer double protection. In line with our forward-looking approach to work, our experts install two membranes for better protection against punctures. Two membranes, twice the peace of mind.
We are meticulous and perform every step in a project with great care. For instance, follow construction of or repairs to a rubble foundation or concrete foundation, Cam Construction applies a membrane, installs a French drain, and repairs cracks.
