Your home’s foundation is one of its most important structural features. In order to maintain a safe, dry, and comfortable living space in your home, the foundation must be protected, and that means utilizing a system to keep water from pooling near your foundation and finding its way into your basement. In Milwaukee and surrounding areas, that system is typically a drain tile system.

At R&R Enterprises, we’re drain tile experts. Our skilled craftsmen understand the ins and outs of these frequently misunderstood systems, and we’re available now to repair, install, and maintain all kinds of drain tile systems.

What is drain tile?

Despite its name, it is commonly not tile at all, but more of a corrugated pipe. This pipe runs along the full perimeter of your house at the foot of the foundation wall, collecting all the drainage of water that slowly pools at the bottom of the foundation. From there, the water is either pumped out with a sump pump, or follows a slope off of the property if the house is built on an incline. This is an excellent landscape drainage solution for your water issues.

Over the life of your home, several problems can arise related to drain tile:

  • Damage to the tile: Years and years of earth’s forces can cause the tile to become crushed. Typically, drain tile is surrounded by loose rock to protect it, but occasionally damage can still occur.
  • Clogged tile: Foreign bodies can occasionally find their way into the drain tile and cause a blockage.
  • Improper installation: Shoddy workmanship and lack of experience can severely limit the lifespan of a drain tile installation.
