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 other drainage companies can’t do it, we probably can. Don’t let an interior waterproofing company tell you that your only option is an interior French drain and sump pump. Sometimes this is the answer, but not always! We offer many drainage 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!

Exterior 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.

Grading For French Drainage Solutions

Grading and Exterior French drain combinations are our specialties! We slope the ground toward the French drains we install to direct water into the French drain so your basement stays dry!


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 elements, including drains, grates, and pipes, can keep water away from critical areas and channel it away from your house. Installing swales and implementing proper grading can also be used to move water to safe areas.

Storm Water Pipe Installation

ICLC expertly installs all sizes of drainage system pipes. We commonly install pipes to drain water from downspouts into the street or a designated area in the back yard. Excessive water near the foundation of your home can do a lot of damage to the most structurally important part of your home.

We also re-route damaged existing drainage pipes if needed. We can also cut and patch asphalt and concrete to install new lines. We always use the proper materials and tools. Heavy-duty schedule 40 pipe is almost always used because of its durability.

Isbir Construction also installs clean-out boxes where appropriate to facilitate the cleaning of future blocked lines in a way that is less intrusive. We install PVC, ABS, and HDPE pipes and pipe fittings, using perforated or solid depending on what the situation requires.

Drainage Swale Installation

A drainage swale is an exposed vegetated channel that collects water stores it temporarily and returns it to the ground gradually to reduce runoff into a road or your yard. Drainage Swales are used to direct heavy surface water flow in extreme rain events to ensure nearby structures and landscape are not affected.

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 as well as 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 so that unwanted water has a place to go.
