Basements are imperfect concrete structures built in soils that vary from region to region.

Water in the soil leaking into basements is a problem that has troubled homeowners for more than 100 years.

This water will leak into the basement through the walls, floors, and the joints between them. Over the years, contractors and engineers have developed a wide variety of methods to stop water leaks and keep basements dry.

Basement Systems dealers use the award-winning WaterGuard and DryTrak basement waterproofing drainage channels with the best warranties in the industry.

Basement waterproofing pic in Duluth, MNOther less-satisfactory methods to waterproof a cellar that non-Basement Systems waterproofing contractors use include:

  • Exterior Excavation - this is where the earth around the perimeter of your house is excavated (removing the driveway, deck, plantings) by a backhoe and a drain tile system (the same one that clogged in the first place) is put down in the dirt and re-filled over with the loose soil. This is the most expensive method and comes with a 5-10-year warranty -- but what if the system clogs again and the warranty needs to be activated, then this entire excavation process needs to be done over again)?

  • Interior old-fashioned French drains or drain tile systems - these are the same systems as used in the exterior excavation, that sit down in the mud with greater potential of clogging.

  • Negative-side Sealant - this includes waterproof paint and hydraulic cement, band-aids at best.

Among the best of these basement waterproofing methods is the patented WaterGuard interior sub-floor drainage system or the or DryTrak baseboard drainage system along the perimeter of the floor. There are a few challenges to this method however.

Waterguard available in MNOne is to keep the drain from being clogged by mud over the years, which Basement Systems waterproofing products address by first being installed above the mud and second being easily accessible for checking and cleaning.

Another challenge for sub-floor systems is to set up the system to accept water from the walls without leaving a large unsightly gap at the edge of the floor which can collect dirt and debris from the floor - another potential for clogging the drain.
