Our Drain Tile Waterproofing Method

An under-the-floor Drain Tile system, also referred to as a ‘French Drainage System’, is recommended in some basement leakage cases. Such cases may include moisture seeping and coming up through inner floor cracks, around support posts, pipes, chimneys, etc.

The Drain Tile/French Drain is installed along the wall and holes are drilled in the cavities of the block, if you have blocks.

Here is an example of drilling holes in the blocks to relieve the basement walls of water:

Special edging is installed along the wall to capture any water seepage or condensation that would come from the wet wall. A particular filter rock is used to filtrate the sediments to prevent premature plugging of the drain tile/French drain system. Also, a unique product is installed to prevent undermining of the footings and help preserve structural integrity. Once all materials for waterproofing the basement are in place, fresh concrete is set in place over top of the filter rock. A dry basement and secure home is important to you and us as well. Choose wisely, we have seen some sad waterproofing cases that have caused undermined footings.

Basic Waterproofing Procedures Include:

  1. Walls are cleaned up
  2. Cracks are sealed
  3. Draintile is added with filter rock
  4. Sump pump added (if needed)
  5. Top soil and clean-up complete the project.
