News: Abarent Construction's Business Continuity Plan for COVID-19


What is weeping tile? Contrary to the “tile” word being used to name it, Weeping tile is actually a porous drain pipe that is used for underground water collection, or underground water drainage.

Weeping tile is typically located beside the footing on a foundation wall. This weeping tile allows ground water to drain into it then run to the sewer or a sump system (this will depend on the age and municipal location of the house). There are occasions where existing weeping tile may need to be replaced. This can occur when old style clay weeping tile becomes dysfunctional or new style plastic weeping tile gets clogged with sediment or tree roots.

There are different types of weeping tile and specific requirements for safe installation. Let the Edmonton weeping tile installation & repair professionals at Abarent Construction provide this service to you for problem free results.

Do you need weeping tile?

  • You may need weeping tile if your house was built prior to Building Code requiring it
  • You may need to replace your existing weeping tile if you have symptoms of ground water intrusion at the footing wall join or from under the floor slab
  • Inspection of existing weeping tile may identify issues such as sediment buildup, tree roots or weeping tile collapse

Our professional inspectors can access your situation and help you understand your requirements and then provide you with choices as to the type of weeping tile required for your situation.
