Drain Tile Systems
A drainage system collects groundwater around the foundation of a building, any seepage, and water leaks from weak spots in the foundation walls. Weak spots occur in foundation cracks, honeycombs, tie rods, and pinholes.
An interior perimeter drainage system addresses hydrostatic pressure, the pressure of groundwater forcing and seeping through basement floor cracks between concrete floor slabs and walls. It also protects the substructure from erosion and losing its load-bearing capacity and stability.
In the Chicago area and surrounding suburbs, this can be an issue with homes or any place where the Northern Illinois storms create new problems. Home G Group provides servicing and installation of a Drain Tile System for your home.

A vapor barrier is recommended if the walls are going to be finished
