Exterior Drainage System in Indianapolis & Central Indiana

Both interior and exterior- as suitable- water drains are installed so that the drainage becomes more effective and convenient for the house. Americrawl Inc. provides the most efficient interior drainage installation services in Indianapolis & Central Indiana.

For several reasons, we advise our customers to not go with exterior drainage systems and we do not provide the installation service for the same. But before you decide, let’s explain why we suggest having interior drainage system and not an exterior one.

Comparing Interior vs Exterior Water Drain


Exterior drainage systems are difficult to access and maintain. If anything goes wrong, it's difficult to identify and correct the issue quickly. The cost of an exterior system might be many times larger than that of an inside system. It is encouraged to do exterior drainage systems on existing properties unless in severe circumstances because of the costs, the mess, and the difficulties of maintaining such systems.

Interior footing drains are the most effective remedy for most moist basements. It is possible to eliminate the slab's edges using this sort of technology. The foundation is then surrounded by a trench that is excavated around the perimeter. Crushed stone is then put over the perforated pipe in the trench to complete the construction. After that, concrete is poured over the trench.

Whatever method you pick, be sure to install drainage throughout the whole basement, even if just a portion of the basement seems to be leaking at a given time. Even if you're confident in your ability to repair your basement, it still wiser to hire a basement-waterproofing specialist likes the ones we have at Americrawl.
