French Drains & Drainage Systems In Pittsburgh

Drainage Systems ExpertsFrench Drains, Drain Pipes, Waterproofing, Grading

Place your trust in the value of Mike Isbir’s 25+ years of experience & Civil Engineering Degree to design and execute your project. We use our expertise in drainage systems and French drains to deal with special, difficult, and unique drainage problems. If others can’t do it, we probably can. Don’t let an interior waterproofing company tell you that you need an interior French drain and sump pump. Sometimes this is the answer, but not always! We offer many alternatives to interior French drains so call us for an unbiased professional second opinion. Our goal is to stop the water from getting to your house in the first place rather than pumping it out of your house after it is already in! Plus we won’t destroy your basement in the process.

French Drain Installation

We install exterior French drains to intercept groundwater and divert it away from critical areas such as basements and low spots in lawns. All drains are installed with a laser transit to ensure water will flow to its desired location. We can cover the drains with soil and grass or leave the drainage stone exposed on the surface to catch surface water.

We do French drain clean-ups as well. If you have an existing French drain that water is no longer getting into, call us to see how we can rejuvenate your old drain.

French Drains & Grading

Grading and French drain combinations are our specialties! We slope the ground toward our French drains to ensure more water goes into the french drain instead of your basement!


Roof Drain Pipe Installation

Rainwater can do damage when it is allowed to flow into areas that cannot handle it, such as around foundations & basements. Properly placed drainage systems, including drains, grates, and pipes, can keep water away from critical areas and channel it to a safe place. Swales and implementing proper grading can also be used to move water to safe areas.

Storm Water Pipe Installation

ICLC installs all sizes of drainage system pipes. We commonly install pipes to drain water from downspouts to streets or backyards. Excessive water near the foundation of your home can do a lot of damage. We also re-route damaged lines if needed. We can cut and patch asphalt and concrete to install the new lines. Heavy-duty schedule 40 pipe is almost always used because of its durability. We also install clean-outs where appropriate to facilitate the cleaning of future blocked lines. We install PVC, ABS, and HDPE pipe and fittings, perforated and solid.

Drainage Swale Installation

Drainage Swales direct heavy surface water flow in extreme rain events. A drainage swale is an exposed channel that collects water and returns it to the ground gradually to reduce runoff into a road or your yard.

Area Drains & Catch Basin Installation

Area drains and catch basins collect surface runoff during rain events. A catch basin is a type of area drain and the holding area for water that comes from area drains. A catch basin minimizes clogging by trapping sticks, litter, sediment, and other larger matter in the inlet grate.
