What about injecting epoxy or urethane via the interior of the home?

Many foundation repair companies in Edmonton attempt to stop basement leakage by injecting epoxy or urethane through the interior of your home. However they don’t have the ability to access the weeping tile system along the footing of your basement’s foundation wall to see if it is clogged, working efficiently, or if it was even installed along your home to begin with. Unfortunately, this can result in costly repairs that won’t solve your long-term foundation problems. Simply plugging the cracks or seams from the interior won’t assess a plugged weeping tile system in need of repair. And most importantly of all, we have run into many homes where injection repairs have clogged the home’s weeping tile system as the epoxy expands if too much has been injected.

My weeping tile drainage system is clogged, or isn’t working properly, what does this mean? What should I do?

When your weeping tile system becomes clogged, the water table around your foundation begins to build up, and the clay surrounding your foundation begins to soak up this moisture. This can lead to a host of issues putting pressure on your foundation walls, or seeking entrance into your basement through cracks, windows, and other means that would normally not receive this excessive pressure.

If your sump pump isn’t frequently pumping water outside of your home after a rain storm, or during the spring melting period, then an inefficient weeping tile system could be to blame. To find out what the root cause may be, please feel free to call an Abalon Construction foundation repair specialist… this may be the best route to solving your leakage and/or structural issues.

 What is weeping tile, and what does it do under my foundation?

Edmonton weeping tile repair company

Weeping tile is a facility that allows water to flow freely without any obstructions around your foundation walls, and eventually discharge away from your property. Perforated plastic pipe is the most widely used weeping tile system in Edmonton and area. In the past, clay weeping tile pieces were fitted together to allow water a route around your foundation. However, the gaps between this older system of drainage allowed for clay and silt to eventually clog the flow of water, eventually making it’s way into your building.

If you suspect your building doesn’t have weeping tile installed, or is failing to work efficiently, speaking with a foundation repair expert is always a recommended course of action. At Abalon Construction, our first concern is testing your home to confirm your weeping tile system, is in fact, working appropriately or, if it was installed to begin with.

Where and why is weeping tile installed in my home’s basement?

In Alberta, regulations require weeping tile installation next to your basement foundation’s footing around the entire exterior perimeter of your home. The purpose of a weeping tile system is to collect excess water drainage down exterior foundation walls. This helps to prevent water pressure from building up against foundation walls, and diverts water before it can be absorbed by surrounding clay, causing it to swell, which exerts pressure on the foundation under your house.

After the water enters the weeping tile along your foundation, it drains to the sewer at the catch basin, or to a sump pit installed in newer homes. Solid pipes are sometimes laid under the basement floor from the sewer or sump pit to each foundation wall, and then connect through the footing to the weeping tile. When deciding upon a foundation repair contractor to install or replace the weeping tile system in your home, make an informed decision to choose an experienced company. As weeping tile repair specialists, will work with your unique problems, to find a budget and a solution that permanently solves any basement leakage or insufficient drainage issues your home endures. 

An experienced foundation repair company always starts out small… to rule out costly repairs.
