How Do Drain Systems such as Drain Tiles Help Waterproof My Basement?

Basement drain system tilesAlthough there are many different names for drain systems, including drain tiles, French drain, perforated drains, and footing drains, they work to achieve one goal: to keep water away from the foundation of your house. If you have a basement or crawl space, you may experience water seepage during heavy rainfall or when snow melts. Depending on the severity of the leakage, your basement could potentially flood, ruining anything that isn’t waterproof. No matter if you install a french drain on the roof of your home or you use a drain tile system underground to catch the water and take it away from your home. Footing drains are also used to move collected water from a lower point outside of your foundation to a sump area or, in some cases, a storm sewer.
