Have you ever gone downstairs to do laundry after a rainstorm, only to discover that there’s water in your basement? Just because Manhattan sees 35 inches of rain a year doesn’t mean you have to see it in your basement! Water issues make a space unusable — the space that was once a helpful storage space is no more. You wouldn’t dream of storing anything there now for fear it will become water damaged, and don’t forget the impact it can have on HVAC equipment.
If those units are damaged it can lead to long-term mold and humidity issues. Insulation and other construction materials are also affected by poorly waterproofed basements, all of which will need to be replaced in order to maintain health in your home.
Quality Basement Waterproofing
These things can happen to even the most diligent homeowner who has ensured that there is good drainage around her home, the windows are sealed, and checks the gutters to ensure they are in good working condition. This is because groundwater from rain or snow can still seep into your basement. The most effective way to prevent this from happening is to install an interior drainage system, such as the ones we offer.
Our systems are designed by SafeBasements and made in the US. They undergo rigorous testing to ensure that they are effective at keeping your basement dry. We use a two-part system to waterproof your basement and protect it from excess moisture that can lead to damage and mold growth.
Water Collection System
This system collects the water that is trying to enter your basement using a unique, multi-flow drain tile system. This system diverts the water away from your basement wall to a sump pump which removes the water. We use the most advanced system available, and utilize a perforated pipe and graveled pit to capture and divert the water. This is a semi-sealed encapsulation system and prevents soil gasses like radon and VOCs from entering your basement, and prevents hydrostatic pressure through the use of a rubber seal on the back that presses into your basement wall to drain the water away.
Sump pumps drain water away from your home, reducing erosion and improving indoor air quality. The sump pumps we install are energy efficient and have a battery backup to ensure that your sump pump will continue to function, keeping your basement nice and dry even if your home loses power.
