About Exterior Drain Tile

Exterior drain tile is highly effective in intercepting & draining away groundwater before it gets into your basement. It is a component of “positive side” waterproofing and protects your basement areas regardless of whether the groundwater is due to:

  • Overflowing gutters
  • Absorption of heavy rains
  • Over-watering of plantings and lawns
  • Overflowing gutters
  • Shifted/incorrectly positioned downspouts

Exterior drain tiles are also referred to as weeping tile, French drains or Footing tiles. Regardless of what you call it, the feature is installed in a similar way and performs the same function. During the installation process, we will also install certain features to protect it against seepage through foundation walls. We apply a specialized waterproofing membrane to the exterior of the walls and cover it completely with drainage board.

Why Install Exterior Drain Tile?

The one way to ensure your basement is well-protected from water seepage and basement flooding is to install interior and exterior drain tiles. These two features, in combination, provide your basements spaces the ultimate protection from moisture and water. There are a number of reasons to opt for exterior drain tile installations such as:

  • It helps prevent deterioration of and damage to the foundation walls.
  • If your home is built on a foundation made of brick, stone, concrete block, or any other masonry, these outdoor drain tiles can prevent problems like wetness/structural damage.
  • Protection for a finished basement- since the exterior drain tile is installed outside the foundation walls, there is no need to tear up a finished basement and install interior drain tiles.
