If you are a homeowner, chances are that you have never given much thought to drain tile. Well, you are not alone because this is one of those structural components that are well hidden below the ground. Given that you do not see it often does not mean that it is not important. Actually, drain tile protects your house from the ever present risk of water damage. Now, think for a moment what you would be dealing with if your house never had drain tile in the first place. There would be no guard against run off water after the rains or melting of snow. This water would simply sip into your basement resulting in flooding and extensive water damage. Water damage is not only a health hazard but it eventually weakens the foundation of a building. 

Repairing Drain Tile

Is it possible to DIY drain tile repair? While it is crucial to safeguard your family and property against the effects of water damage, it is equally important to do it right. The first step is to identify where the problem is – the first sign of drain tile damage in close proximity is water damage. The next step requires unearthing the drain tile to get to the root of the problem. This might require the use of heavy machinery depending on how deep you will need to dig. When you get to a gravel layer, you know you are close because gravel is used as a cover for drain tile. You do not need to throw this away because you will need gravel to cover up your work after the repair. When you get to the drain tile, take measurements of the pipe and take note of the sections that need to be cut out. 

Clearly, this is not an easy job and that is why we are here. If you consider the amount of time, level of expertise and specialized equipment needed you are better off giving the job to us.
