Drain Tile by Christian Brothers
Drain tile is a piping system that directs water away from your house and is necessary to every building project. Water removal is critical to the longevity and safety of your home, because water can damage even the most durable building materials.If you have issues like a wet basement, water running down your block walls, water puddling around the house, etc.; you can probably get great results from installing drainage tile. Make sure to get any water problems addressed immediately as water can erode your foundation over time.
Drain Tile Installation
Depending on the particular project, drain tile can be installed in the basement, outside your foundation, or in your yard. It is important that drainage tile is installed correctly with a constant pitch going away from the house and proper drainage rock surrounds it. In most cases, the drainage pipe should be covered with a mesh sock to prevent sand and soil seeping in. Most often hydrostatic pressure is relieved once it is installed allowing water seepage from cracks or soil to have a proper exit route.
Interior & Exterior Drain Tiles
At Christian Brothers Construction & Concrete, we use only high quality materials and methods to install your interior and exterior drainage tiles. Interior drainage tile is inserted below the concrete slab by digging up a portion of your basement floor. The pipe is installed and covered with washed gravel, and then we replace the concrete.
For exterior drain tile, we dig a portion of your yard and install the tile in order to relieve oversaturated soil and divert standing ground water. Exterior drain tile can greatly improve the attractiveness and function of your yard.
We take a comprehensive look at each problem, with a keen eye on water management. Minnesota chimney and foundation repairs require more than concrete or masonry, it requires respect for what water does in our freeze-thaw climate.
