Installing a sump pump can significantly reduce flooding and standing water in crawlspaces. Ensure proper installation by hiring a professional.
If your crawlspace is plagued by standing water or fills up with water when it rains, a sump pump is one tool you can use to mitigate flooding concerns.
A sump pump is installed in a basin below the ground of your crawlspace. When water enters your crawlspace, it accumulates in the basin, and the pump removes the water and releases it in a safe location.
A sump pump is usually used in combination with other water mitigation tools. If your crawlspace has moisture problems, give Tier Restoration a call for a customized, permanent solution.

Sump pumps come in many styles and designs. The cheap ones are usually cheap for a reason, they are not made to last. A quality sump pump will be made with cast iron parts and have a good reputation. If it is critical that your sump pump not fail then you should consider installing a backup pump alongside your main pump.
What if your electricity goes out during a storm? You have a couple of options: you can install a battery backup or you can install one that runs on water pressure rather than electricity. Just give us a call and we can help you find the right sump pump for your specific needs and concerns.
Sump pumps come in many different designs, installations, and options. A hole dug in the dirt with a sump pump sitting in the hole will technically work, but not for long. A minor improvement is to stick it in a five-gallon bucket. But a professional installation includes a real sump basin that is tall enough to hold enough water to keep from overflowing and deep enough to collect the rising water table.
While they do make perforated sump basins, most are drilled on site with enough holes to allow an easy flow of water.
Filter fabric, not landscaping fabric, should be wrapped around the basin to keep out sediment.
Four to six inches of gravel are installed around the sides and bottom of the basin to provide a path of least resistance for the water to flow into the basin.
The basin can also be used to collect water from French drains if they are installed.
A high-quality sump pump can require 9 to 10 amps, meaning it can take almost all of the power from an average circuit and usually needs a “home run,” a dedicated breaker, added.
The discharge from the sump pump cannot be put in your sewage or waste system. Some municipalities prohibit discharging the sump pump water into storm drains. So where do you put it? The official answer is, “somewhere else that is not prohibited.” That usually means in the yard or to the neighborhood drainage swale or ditch.

TOP notch folks. Called and got an immediate response. I called them in a hurry and they showed up the next morning to do a mold test. Very helpful and professional and I will use them again!!!
I had nothing but a wonderful experience with Tier. They were on time,very friendly and knew exactly what they were doing. I had a spot that I'd had for 4 year on my carpet and figured I would have to replace that carpet but they got it out after a couple of tries. I was truly amazed. Alex, the manager, I'd worked with before and I can't say enough good things about him. He's always there when you need him with a solution for whatever your problem is. He has a very positive attitude and is great to be around. All in all my experience was fantastic!
I honestly believe you won't find a better company to work on your home than TIER. Alex has always given me more than fair estimates and exceeded all my expectations with the final product.
Most recently, TIER installed an interior french drain in my house. Alex came out to my house through all stages of the project. He even did a final walk through and decided that he was not satisfied yet and told me he would send his guys out to bring it to his standards. I can't stress how rare this is.
Until working with Alex and TIER, I had not found a company in Nashville that I trusted. They are the only company in Nashville I would feel comfortable recommending to a friend.
Greg Lewis Tier Restoration is committed to doing the best work. The company's slogan, “Experience The Next Level” really describes Greg's work ethic as a professional in his field. He is a great resource for folks who need help with their homes. Greg and his team are folks to be trusted!
I've been selling homes for over 30 years and have owned rental properties for over 10 years. Tier Restoration is by far the best company of its kind I have ever used. As a real estate Broker selling hundreds of homes a year it is empowering to have a company as competent and professional as Greg Lewis and his crews. As a landlord I have personally used them twice in the past 12 months on major situations. The kind of challenges that would cause many to lose sleep over. In both cases Alex took my fear and concerns I was facing and extinguished them all by his consistent timely communication and professional awareness throughout the process to completion.
From simple duct cleaning to major foundation and crawl space repair and remediation there is only 1 company that I call. They are simply the best!
The Tier group were amazing!! From the moment they walked in my front door, I knew we were going to be in good hands. The work was professionally done, and the communication was outstanding. Don't waste your time looking at other restoration companies, choose Tier and have that peace of mind that we had!!
Alex and his team are amazing to work with. Everyone is courteous, on time, and thorough in their work. Alex stops by to personally check on his crew and talk with the homeowner. I highly recommend Tier Restoration and will certainly use them again and again.
