  • Perf Pipes: Why You Need Them!

    [caption id="attachment_6551" align="alignleft" width="287"]Pipes Perforated "Perf" Pipes[/caption]

    Perforated "Perf" pipes are very handy during the rainy season. They are a cost effective solution for preventing basement leaks. If you're concerned with your drainage system, you really need to invest in these pipes. Here are some other reasons to get on the perf band wagon. Need help installing these pipes? Give your Cleveland Contractors and Home Mechanics a call today to setup an estimate!

    1. Flexibility: because of its flexibility, our perforated pipe is better suited for trenches or where the ground is uneven. Depending on whether your circumstances dictate a flexible or rigid drainage solution, our perforated pipe is simple to install and well within the capabilities of the do-it-yourself enthusiast.

    2. Perforated: our pipe can be either fully perforated, i.e., slotted around the entire circumference or half-perforated, i.e., have holes on only one side of the pipe, non -perforated , and perforated covered in filter sock. Perforations allow subsurface water to be collected and transplanted to favorable locations for discharge. Perforated pipe gives you the control you need to direct underground water where you want it, to encourage proper surface water percolation and in many cases to lower the groundwater table.
