Why Choose Interior Waterproofing?

Interior waterproofing systems are also known as

interior weeping tile systems, or internal perimeter drain systems.

Interior waterproofing systems are an alternative method of waterproofing. It is commonly used for three main reasons:

  1. Your foundation is a concrete block wall.

  2. Exterior excavation is not feasible. 

    • Interior waterproofing is used ​when the exterior waterproofing is deemed unsafe for employees, residents, and/or neighbouring homes.

  3. Price​

 

There is NO excavation involved in the interior waterproofing process.

An interior waterproofing system is a highly cost-effective option, however interior waterproofing is not considered waterproofing. Interior waterproofing is a Water Management System, as it is designed to keep your basement dry by attracting and then diverting water back to the outside of your home.

The Weeping Tile System (Interior Waterproofing)

The weeping tile system is placed at the base of a foundation wall - the footing of the home. The system is designed to dispose of any groundwater that has accumulated along the footing. The weeping tile system follows the building's footings, as it is the lowest part of the home. The weeping tile system also allows for a continuous circuit.

The weeping tile system utilizes a plastic pipe that will carry the water from the interior waterproofing system to the sump pump. The sump pump is the tool used to push water out of the home. To avoid a clogged weeping tile, the pipes are covered with a root-proof sock. Another way Nusite keeps the weeping tile system clean is by covering the perforated pipe with fine gravel.
