Basement drainage is an important part of keeping your home in the best condition possible, and a big step in fixing your basement issues for good.
Flooding in your home isn’t just a frustrating inconvenience; it’s an unnerving problem that can seem like a very big issue. Many homeowners who deal with basement flooding worry about the quality and safety of their home. Pooling water, destroyed baseboard or trim, damaged furniture and other issues can make flooding feel like a home catastrophe. Often times, home flooding is caused by a settling or cracking foundation which causes rips or tears in the basement sealant that normally protects a home from moisture.
By installing a drainage system around the inside of the basement along the wall, you can capture water at the most common point of entry - the floor/wall joint. You can also capture water from the walls and prevent the center of the basement floor from leaking by intercepting the water at the perimeter of the floor before it gets to the center.
Even in basements that are already finished, it's still much easier to waterproof from the inside than the outside. Most full-time basement waterproofing companies offer interior drainage systems - between which there are big differences in systems. Some are old-fashioned and generic, and others are modern and specially designed for the job.
