Weeping Tile Installation

A great investment, when it comes to protecting your basement from flooding is a weeping tile installation, or as also known a French drain. Interior weeping tiles are perforated drain pipe that collects water and funnels it to the sump pump for drainage. Water accumulating around the foundation footings can damage to your foundation but also leaky and wet basement conditions that mold can grow. Exterior weeping tiles are also comprised of a perforated drain pipe laid on gravel and it drains the water away from the property towards the downhill grade.

We offer weeping tile system installations in Toronto and across the GTA. In operation since 2004 we have hundreds of basement waterproofing projects under our belt, both interior and exterior. An integral step in the waterproofing construction is the installation of an exterior weeping tile or an interior weeping tile.

Exterior Weeping Tile Systems

The process of the exterior weeping tile installation begins with excavating around the perimeter of your exterior walls all the way to below the foundation footings. The old weeping tile is removed and the new weeping tile is laid on the soil at the foot of your foundation. A layer of gravel is layered on top of it and the pipe drains water accumulated by rain, flooding or snow melt away from the property.

Interior Weeping Tile Systems

Interior weeping tiles are preferably installed in crawlspaces or unfinished basements. If your basement is finished there are weeping tile installation techniques that can accommodate the different needs of the working space. In both cases a small ditch that runs across your walls is dug out. Installed in the dug out ditch is the weeping tile drain pipe with gravel both on the bottom and top so water can easily drain and be guided in the pipe. The ditch has a downwards grade towards to the sump pump which will pump water to the outside of the property.

"I just wanted to thank you again for the excellent work your guys did and your very high level of service. You went above and beyond in a number of areas and that is unfortunately pretty rare in the construction industry today. Thanks again.

John O’Connor

Home Owner, Toronto

“Interhome Waterproofing is at the top of their field. We had a wet basement issue and had a few contractors come out for an assessment. Very quickly we were impressed by Ali, one of the owners of IW. He was thorough, patient to explain to us our options, even pointed out that our sump pump was not working properly. We are very pleased with their work. They were professional, courteous and the project manage was always on top of things. Highly recommended.”

“As general contractors we rely on our working relationship with our sub-contractors to produce quality work and uphold our good name. We have been working with Interhome Waterproofing since 2008. They have tackled several complex projects and have always delivered on time and above expectations. We value having them as partners and look forward working with them on our next project.”

"Interhome Waterproofing came highly recommended by our building engineer and we are so glad we took his recommendation. We decided it was time to add a full height basement to our old Toronto house. The underpinning process scared us, but Ali put our fears to rest by thoroughly explaining the safeguards and precautions that their process included. The project went without a hitch and we are very happy with the result and their service."
