Drain Tile Systems
Purpose of the drainage system is to collect the groundwater around the foundation of the building, seepage, and water leaks from weak spots of your foundation walls- foundation cracks, honeycombs, tie rods, and pinholes. An interior perimeter drainage system addresses hydrostatic pressure that is, the pressure of groundwater forcing and seeping thru your basement floor cracks, between the concrete floor slab and foundation wall. The perimeter drainage system also protect the substructure from erosion and from losing its load-bearing capacity and stability. In Chicago area and surrounding suburbs this can be an issue with homes that lack this system, or where the harsh Northern Illinois storms have created new issues.
