Prevent Water Damage with a Drain Tile

Basements are susceptible to water damage if the proper waterproofing products aren’t put in place. Protect your basement from water damage by installing a drain tile to collect any water before it ever enters your basement. Once this system is installed, you’ll never have to worry about water entering your basement ever again. 

Why We Don’t Recommend an Exterior French Drain

Exterior French Drains are a popular method for a perimeter drain, but we don’t recommend installing them for a number of reasons:

  • Extremely messy and invasive installation process
  • Must remove any landscaping, porches, etc. that are in the way
  • Much more expensive than drain tile installation
  • Can easily clog with debris 
  • Susceptible to freezing during the winter 

At MidAmerica Basement Systems, we use a much smarter method for protecting the perimeter of your house with a drain tile system. The drain tile will ensure your home is protected for a less expensive price and less invasive installation process.

Benefits of a Drain Tile System 

A drain tile is essentially a PVC pipe that is laid underground around the perimeter of your home. It collects all water before it ever enters your basement and properly directs the water far away from your home’s foundation. Our drain tile system is proven to not clog with debris and properly collects all groundwater to protect your basement from water damage.
