Drain Tile System
A drain tile system may be the required waterproofing solution when large amounts of water pour into a building over or through foundation walls, or hydrostatically up through the basement floor often first evident at the cove where the foundation walls meet the floor. Untreated excessive water pressure can result in extreme damage to a building’s foundation.
Water travels the path of least resistance, which is often located in or around a building’s basement, and can result in significant damage to the structural integrity of a building. Great Lakes Waterproofing has developed optimal solutions to seepage concerns that are based on recommendations from engineers and architects who specialize in foundation design and construction. Our choices of materials and supplies, including sump pumps, piping, concrete, and even rock size, are recognized as best-in-industry practices.
A flume channel system is another example of a modern solution to a wet basement problem. Great Lakes Waterproofing may install a flume channel to control water when a monolithic floor (i.e., no foundation footer) is present or when the installation of a traditional drain tile system is otherwise impeded. The flume channel diverts water to a floor or sump basin.
Great Lakes Waterproofing offers a TRANSFERABLE WARRANTY FOR THE LIFE OF THE STRUCTURE, which also requires a team approach with homeowners who need to keep their gutters, downspouts, and grading in proper working order for any installed materials to be completely effective.
