Drainage Replacement for Old Homes

We perform full-scale perimeter drainage replacement when lowering or raising the basement or replacing the entire foundation. Often, homes built decades ago need to replace their outdated drainage with the latest models. That’s why our technicians are familiar with these drain types:

Clay Drainage - Often found in homes built before the 1980s, these drainage systems are likely to be brittle, cracked, and susceptible to root infiltration. As a result, clay drainage becomes difficult to clean out or flush unless replaced.

Big-O Drainage – A popular choice between the 1980-90s, Big-O Drainage lacks thickness, making the system weak and susceptible to root infiltration. At times, it can be impossible to clean or flush unless the system is completely replaced.

PVC Drainage – Solid or perforated PVC pipes are used today to repair or replace drainage systems. PVC pipes are durable, easy to connect, and even easier to maintain (damaged sections can be easily replaced), thanks to their straightforward design.
