Keeping drain tiles & sump pumps in excellent working condition goes a long way in protecting your foundation. Cracks often appear after years of water infiltration, which is why drain tiles & sump pumps are so important – they keep basements from flooding.
Drain tiles, also known as french drains, weeping tiles, or foundation drains, prevent water from pooling in low areas near the home’s foundation. These drainage systems can be installed under basement flooring (interior) or buried next to the foundation’s outside wall (exterior). Exterior drain tiles are built to last long-term but clog quickly, requiring regular maintenance to prevent basement flooding. Interior drain tiles need a sump pump system to move water away from the foundation effectively. We have experience repairing interior and exterior drain tiles, as well as sump pumps.
