Interior Basement Tiling

Rainwater seeps into the soil around your home and builds up pressure against your foundation walls. This “hydrostatic pressure” can exert tons of force causing your basement to leak and crack. We can relieve that pressure and protect your investment by installing interior basement tiling. The information and pictures below explain the process and how it works.

Interior Basement Floor Diagram
  1. The basement floor is cut and removed at the perimeter. The material is excavated to a depth of approximately 12”.
  2. Drain tile surrounded by washed rock is installed and routed to the sump pit and pump. The sump pump piping delivers the ground water to the rear or side yard of the home.
  3. Relief holes are drilled in each block core and a floor edging/drainage mat is installed to allow water in the block cores to continue to drain into the tile trench.
  4. Vapor barrier is installed over the tile and washed rock and new concrete is poured to return the floor to its original level.
  5. Vertical and horizontal wall cracks caused by water pressure are tuck-pointed to seal the walls.
