Cove (or cold) Joint Seepage
Cove Joints are a typical place to get basement seepage. The reason for is that Cove Joints are a type of cold joint between different pours of concrete. This means that the area is not waterproofed and can let water through when under pressure. Fortunately, there is a reliable and warrantied system we can install that will prevent this from ever leaking again.
Purpose of a Drain Tile System
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 adjacent to your footing underneath your slab floor. Once the water is collected into the drain tile system using gravity flow to pitch toward an existing or new 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 some cases a wall-liner system to collect water seeping down the foundation wall. This will ensure a dry basement at all times. This system will prevent water from seeping into your homes basement. Ensuring a dry basement, especially during heavy rain storms, when you need it most.
