Water infiltration can cause significant damage to your home’s foundation, leading to costly repairs and potential health hazards. That’s why the University of Minnesota recommends sub-slab interior drain tile as a preventative measure against water issues.
Sub-slab interior drain tile involves installing a perforated pipe underneath your basement’s slab to collect water that seeps through the foundation walls. The collected water is then routed to a sump pump, which pumps it outside away from your foundation.
This solution is especially crucial in areas where heavy rain and seepage occur, leading to water infiltration. Installing sub-slab interior drain tile can also increase your home’s value, making it a valuable investment for the long run.
Installation involves excavating a trench around the perimeter of your basement, down to the footings. The trench is then filled with gravel, perforated pipe is installed, and more gravel is added. The water is directed to the sump basin where it is pumped away from your home.
Installation usually takes one to two days. For a free, not obligation estimate contact Standard Water Control today. We’ll happily answer any questions you may have.
