Victoria is city with many older homes. In years past perimeter drain systems were done differently and with a much higher level of built-in failure resulting in flooding of basements and crawl spaces. When the old clay and concrete perimeter drain tiles collapse, roots and dirt clog the drain; the basement has no drainage protection and the basement floods. Basement and floor perimeter drainage is essential for protection of your house or building foundation. Without an adequate perimeter drain, flooding and erosion problems will cause very costly repair bills and reconstruction may be required.
