Property damage caused by water and moisture infiltration into the basement can include: wall framing damage, slab and foundation damage, deterioration of carpeting and flooring, electrical hazards when wet, mold growth and rot, and an unhealthy environment. Drainage solutions require that water be diverted away from the basement.
Advantages of Exterior and Interior Drainage Solutions
Once the source of the problem water has been determined, a suitable solution can be proposed. Drainage solutions can involve exterior, interior or a combination of drainage systems. Where possible, we offer these options and provide you the pros and cons of each. In a perfect world, your house or structure would have a viable drainage system around the exterior of the foundation (or at least should have when your home was built). Houses are typically built with exterior, rather than interior systems. You are undoubtedly calling us because all or part of your home is experiencing original system failure and some or all the conditions noted above.
