When it comes to Drainage Systems, the goal is to divert water away from your Home’s Foundation. Excessive amounts of water around the Foundation can damage your Basement and eventually your Home. There are multiple types of Drainage Systems. All of them work in their own way to provide a path of least resistance for the water while directing it away from your Foundation.
Types and Names for Drainage Systems:
➤ French Drain
➤ Subsoil Drain
➤ Footing Drains
➤ Perimeter Drains
➤ Interior Drain Tile
Interior Drain Tile Systems is the Drainage service that we provide here at Suburban Basement. This system is designed to handle any water that French Drains and Footing Drains are unable to keep up with. Your home's gutter system can become clogged or rust allowing water to leak into your basement. The same is true for French Drains and Footing drains, they can become crushed over the years by surrounding soil or become clogged as well.
In these cases, we would suggest an Interior Drain Tile System. As mentioned in the previous paragraph, It is designed to catch the excess water that the exterior drains cannot keep up with, considerably reducing the chances of water seeping through to the basement. The interior Drain Tile system is installed along a path of the perimeter towards the sump pump. A trench is dug where the drainpipe, also known as drain tile, will be placed giving the water a path to the sump pump which will pump excess water out and away from the foundation as needed. If your Basement does not already have a sump pump one will need to be installed.
If you are experiencing water at your cove joints (where the floor meets the wall) ask an expert such as the Owner of Suburban Basement to assess the situation for you. A professional Waterproofer will be able to tell you if your home would benefit from an Interior Drain Tile System.

We had a few companies come out and give us an estimate for our foundation repair. Suburban Basement had the most logical and cost effective solution. One company insisted we install an interior drainage system that cost in excess of $15,000.00, another company insisted digging up the exterior of my foundation would solve the problem and at a cost of $7000.00, Suburban Basement did an epoxy injection to repair a crack in the foundation at a cost under $300. It’s good to know there are still some honest contractors out there.
I buy and sell properties for a living and we started using Suburban Basement a few years back. Not only are their services priced reasonably, they never try to sell you a service that you don’t need. That’s why I refer them to anyone looking for a basement repair company.
My husband and I had a company come out to repair a leak in our basement wall. We continued to have problems with the repair this company made, and they came back at least 5-6 times over the spam of 1 year, and still couldn’t resolve the problem. A friend gave us Suburban’s number and insisted we try them. To be honest we were apprehensive given the ordeal this other company put us through. Suburban came out and repaired the previous botched repair job and at a considerably less cost.It’s been over a year and still no leaks. We would highly recommend them to anyone considering a basement repair company.
I called a few companies out to give us an estimate to repair what turned out to be a drain tile issue with our home. Suburban Basement’s number was given to us by 2 different friends of ours, so they already impressed us with that. They explained to us that we did have a drain tile issue based on the fact that the wall showed no signs of moisture, and that the water was only coming up at the base where the floor meets the wall. So no outside digging was necessary. Mind you that they also did outside repairs when needed. They explained the whole process of why it leaked, how to repair the problem, and which methods are the appropriate ways to repair each issue. We were pleased that they took the time to go over every detail and question we had, made us feel confident that they were the right choice.
Great customer service and Workmanship done right which is extremely hard to find these days... Highly recommend this company!
