Interior Drain Tile System Installed – Cove Joint Seepage

The purpose of a drain tile system is to collect water around your foundation through an installed system of channel drains (made from PVC pipe with weep holes, maintenance free and clog free) running along next to your footing and underneath your slab floor. Once the water is collected using gravity flow into a pit, the sump pump will discharge the water and pump it away from your home. In addition to a drain tile system we will also use in most cases a  mel-drain system to collect water seeping down the foundation wall. This system will  prevent water from seeping into your home, keeping it dry especially when you need it most during heavy  rain storms.

Every contractor uses the same concept, the big difference is an experienced team, some companies might want to sell with gimmicks with different types of material that increase flow, don’t fall for marketing gimmicks, they are fun to look at, but a pain to pay for, instead of financing SAVE MONEY NOW, and pay a fair price for the best quality work. All of our work comes with transferable warranties, we keep basements dry every time.
