Hello Everyone,

I recently purchased a 100+ year old house that needs new weeping tile installed. This house has a poured foundation, with three rows of block on top, block porch on the front, and an addition with a crawlspace on the back. Can anyone provide me with information/instructions on how the weeping tile will be installed to properly water-proof this basement? Will the weeping tile have to follow the basement walls, even under the crawlspace? And What about around the crawlspace itself?

I really need to finish it, and I'm paranoid about moisture problems.

This works best when installed around the exterior of the foundation walls. If you need detailed step-by-step instructions contact me through my website.
