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.
But, in case you ever need to get in touch with us, your local Basement Systems dealer, has a fully staffed Service Department to handle your calls.
Other less-satisfactory methods to waterproof a cellar that non-Basement Systems waterproofing contractors use include:
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.
One 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.
