Vancouver homes employ perimeter drainage systems in order to catch and direct water away from the foundations of homes or commercial buildings, thereby protecting the structural integrity of those foundations. Perimeter drainage systems also keep basements dry, sometimes staving off thousands of dollars’ worth of damage. Due to the nature of British Columbia's Weather, these systems are extremely important.
Here’s how perimeter drainage systems function. In the same way eavestroughing collects rainwater and directs it away from your home through a downspout, perimeter drainage systems do the same for groundwater. Budget Drainage can install your system on the interior or exterior of your home or business, regardless of your properties specifications. Our experience is something your neighbors trust and you can rely on it too!
Your perimeter drainage system can include a foundation membrane, perforated drainage pipe, porous fill (usually 3/4" gravel). The membrane keeps moisture away from the foundation, the fill allows water to freely move down to the pipework and also up into the perforated pipe which is graded away from the foundation, usually to catch basin and then out to the city drains.
If your system is showing signs of failing or has already failed, please read our guide on what to do when your perimeter drainage system fails, and get in contact with us as soon as you can for a free consultation.
If you have ever observed water seeping from the bottom of your basement wall or floor joint on the interior of your home, then you are likely to need a perimeter drainage system. Vancouver has an oceanic (therefore wet) climate, so many local contractors incorporate these foundation-saving systems into their homes and buildings. If you do not yet have such a system, Budget Drainage can install one for you. We have a thorough understanding of perimeter drainage systems, as well as all other aspects of drainage for homes and commercial buildings. Should your system fail, we’re able to come and make the repairs you need.
