Shawnessy Perimeter Drain Tile Installation Service, Replacement & Repairs
Perimeter drain tiles are an important part of your home architecture and landscaping plan. Drain tiles help direct rain water away from your foundations or basement. This has a two-fold purpose. Directing the water away from your home prevents saturation of the ground around foundations or basement walls – which can cause settling, moisture leaks, mold and mildew as well as inviting a host of creatures to take up residence – and it offers an opportunity for direction moisture into appropriate locations such as storm drains. Highmark Plumbing can help with your perimeter drain tile installation service, replacement & repairs in Shawnessy.
Perimeter drain tiles are often installed during construction, but it is possible to install them later, as well as to repair or replace existing installations. These tiles are usually a permeable tube that is laid down on a bed of gravel. It is set up on a planned grade to encourage the water to flow in the desired direction. The tube is then covered with something that will allow groundwater to percolate through into the drain, such as moderately sized rocks and coarse gravel. This can even be topped with an ornamental layer of polished stones held in place with a decorative boarder. This process not only directs storm water, but it keeps it separate from effluent, which relieves stress on local water treatment plants.
