Basement Weeping Tile Cleaning / Jetting
Over time weeping tile systems can become clogged with clay, minerals, sediment or soil that has seeped through the filtration process. Instead of taking the more expensive approach of replacing the entire weeping tile system, we may suggest the excavation and cleaning of your weeping tile by sending 3000 psi at 5.6 gpm of water through the weeping tile and flush out all the clogged particles. Depending on the age of your house will depend on which type of weeping tile your house will have and which tactic we would use to clean it out. If your home is built before 1973, it most likely has a clay pipe weeping tile system with a 90 degree "elbow" shaped pipe at each corner.
Do to the angle of the pipe, sending the line around the corner of your house is difficult, so in order to flush the pipe efficiently we excavate at opposite corners of your home and feed the line in from those locations. If you home has Big "O" weeping tile, feeding the line around the corners of the home is a breeze.
Brick / Masonry / Stone Sealed
Masonry & Brick Sealer should be breathable and allows water vapor to escape. Liquid water, especially from wind driven rains, will stay out of the brick and masonry. Sealing of masonry can resolve brick flashing issues if done by a most reputable waterproofing contractor.Sealing masonry or stone will stop water vapor from the interior of the building, or from the underside of pavers can escape. This will reduce efflorescence, spalling and scaling that can occur from water being trapped inside the brick substrate and freezing during cold weather. Penetrating commercial grade sealers leaves no surface film to wear away and maintains surface textures. Please further note if non-professional’s applications are applied to any substrates it then will be too late to hire a professional.
