Grated Drain Pipe in Northern Maryland

Stop Flooding Through Doorways, Hatchways, & Entryways

A closeup of our grated basement drainage pipe system, installed in FrostburgMany homeowners have contacted us with concerns about water flowing into their home through hatchway entrances, down stairways, or through garage doors. When we encounter this kind of situation, we usually recommend our TrenchDrain Drainage Pipe System.

 

TrenchDrain resembles half of a basement drainage pipe, with a grated opening fitted snugly on top. The grate is flush or slightly below the floor, eliminating any tripping hazard. It is uniquely designed to span doorways, hatchway entrances, and similar entryway doors. Any water passing over the drain is collected through the openings and redirected to your sump pump.

Advantages to our system:

  • Grated openings collect flooding water
  • Removable lid for cleaning & service
  • Designed to create no tripping hazards
  • Compatible with our other drain systems
  • Works with radon mitigation systems
  • Includes a written lifetime warranty

Our TrenchDrain System has a removable lid that can be taken off to remove leaves, dirt, or debris that could clog your system.

This drain can also be fitted with a ball-and-cup drain — making it compatible with an existing radon mitigation system.

Stop Flooding Through Garage Doors

Many of our customers have the TrenchDrain System installed along the opening to their garage door. In this application, the drain will intercept the water and direct it to your sump pump system.

We always recommend installing the drain along the inside of the garage, where it’s much less likely to freeze during the winter months.

Installing our drain along the inside of the door will also protect the system from clogging with outside debris such as dirt, sand, sticks, and leaves.

We recommend installing the drain inside the entrance.

Since the TrenchDrain Drainage Pipe System includes a grated opening, it separates the drain from the basement as much as possible.

“From the very beginning of the transaction, Dave, the owner was honest, upfront and professional in his interactions with me. I am more than pleased with the work but more importantly, his values instilled in me a sense of confidence in small business owners who still believe in doing what is right for customers and providing outstanding customer service. I HIGHLY recommend Mission Home Services!”

“Dave was super responsive and went above and beyond in getting my basement project completed. He kept in regular contact with me on updates to the project, expected delivery of materials, and on permitting status. Very reliable and did a terrific job on my basement retaining wall.”

Gail B. | ★★★★★

“First of all, I don’t usually do reviews; however, I was so impressed with the guys at Mission Home Services that I felt the need to let others know. We had them out to inspect our basement and give us an estimate on waterproofing it for future renovations. The representatives gave us a great education on not only how a basement leaks, but also how ours was leaking and the correct method to fix it. We highly recommend this company!”
