Many people opt for interior weeping tile solutions because they are more cost effective, and require less work.
However, exterior weeping tile installation comes with added benefits, and offers extra protection by helping to prevent water from breaching the exterior of your walls in the first place. Combined with exterior waterproofing
, weeping tile installation on the outside of the building gives you the ultimate lifelong solution that will protect your home. The drawback is the price, as exterior solutions require extensive excavations.
We offer both interior and exterior weeping tile installation here at Direct Waterproofing, Ontario.
The exterior weeping tile installation procedure is very similar to the interior, but is designed to dispose of ground water that accumulates around the footing of your foundations.
We excavate down to the base of your foundation walls around the footing. The piping is installed, and covered over again. Sometimes the system is connected to a sump pump in your basement, but often the drainage will run the perimeter of your home, and carry the water to a storm sewer.
