Water Proofing / Seepage / Drain Tile Systems

drain tile

This category of products is used to stop the infiltration of water from entering your home through wall cracks and floors in most cases by hydrostatic pressure. Depending on the severity of your problem and your objectives as a customer Xpert will provide you with suggestions necessary to achieve a cost effective solution.

Interior Drain Tile Systems

The Xpert Interior Drain Tile System is a product designed for complete resolution, it is installed along the interior perimeter of your home and accompanied by Xpert Sheet Drain, this allows for absolute protection against Hydrostatic pressure. All water around your foundation and under your floors are channeled into this drain tile system from above and below reliving the Hydrostatic pressure around the foundation. The water is then transferred to a drain tile sump pump where it is either pumped to the city sewer or an area out side your home depending on city or village codes.

Exterior Drain Tile Systems

The Xpert Exterior Drain Tile System is generally installed for the same purpose as an interior drain tile system, when your foundation is made of common brick or lime stone water infiltration can start to degrade the structural integrity of the brick. Xpert installs its drain tile out side and uses a asphalt base product called Frost Shield on the common brick or limestone to stop further deterioration and water penetration of the foundation. All water is channeled into the drain tile system and then transferred to a sump pump. The cost of exterior drain tile is usually much higher than interior drain tile due to the additional labor for excavation and should only be considered when there are no other options available.

Foundation Cracks and Grade Seepage

When complete drain tile systems are over kill and unnecessary and your problems are related to foundation cracks or grade seepage caused by landscaping issues. Foundation cracks can be filled with Epoxy and landscaping techniques can be performed to reduce grade away from common bricks where infiltration generally occurs. No matter what your decision may be Xpert Flood Control and Seepage will be there to provide the best guidance available.
