Our interior waterproofing system includes the installation of drainage channels and pipes. The drainage channels collect the water and the pipes drain the water into the sump pit. When the water in the sump pit reaches a certain level, the sump pump will turn on and drain the water out of the sump pit and away from the basement and foundation.
Our exterior waterproofing system includes the installation of a waterproofing membrane on the exterior of the structure, next to the foundation walls. A drainage board with dimples is also installed. This drainage board allows the necessary space for water to travel from the top of the wall down to the collecting pipes below.
The sump pump system consists of the sump pit, sump pump, and battery backup sump pump. The sump pits collect the water and the sump pump is activated when the water reaches a certain level and drains the water from the pit and away from the basement. The battery backup sump pump activates in case of a power outage.
