It is likely that your basement will develop leakage of some kind during its lifetime. The age of the structure does not indicate the likelihood of developing a leak. As a basement waterproofing company we see many leaks in homes less than five years old.
Interior drains are the most effective form of removing water from your home. Here’s how it works. A perforated drain pipe is installed inside of the perimeter of the basement flooring. To do so, we must remove and replace the concrete at the slab edge. Putting the pipe beneath the slab allows the area to drain to a lower level and to a sump pump. The pump will have an airtight cover and remain safe at all times. Cement and debris will be removed and a channel will be dug out. Once the channel is cleaned, the proper slope will be created and then each cell of the cinderblock will be drilled which will remove all the water that has been accumulated within the foundation walls. From there, water will no longer build up in the walls but will instead flow freely through the holes of the drainage system. The sump pump then discharges the water outside of the foundation wall and the floor is resealed with concrete.
