Interior Drain Tile Systems
Standard Interior Drain Tile System
Hydrostatic pressure causes water to enter the basement where the floor and wall meet or through floor cracks. Installing a standard interior drain tile system with sump pump will allow an escape path for the water, relieving hydrostatic pressure, and keeping your floor dry.
Installing an interior drain tile system requires us to cut and remove the concrete floor around the entire perimeter of basement approximately 1 ft. wide, hand digging the soil 10″ in depth. We install 4″ perforated drain tile covered with ¾” stone and connect the drain tile to sump pit with sump pump. We then re-pour new concrete into the entire perimeter of the floor. This is a dusty dirty job and dust prevention to protect the rest of the house is the homeowner’s responsibility.
Tips and advice on dust prevention will be given at consult.

Block foundation homes with water entering the basement through the floor and the walls, will require our premium interior drain tile system to be installed, this system is our standard system with three additional steps to control water seeping through block walls. These additional steps require drilling holes at the bottom of each block to relieve pressure, install a gutter channel system and installing vapor barrier to interior walls.
