There are several methods to keeping water out of your basement - and getting it out when it gets inside.
Interior basement waterproofing, which involves moving water out of the home once it's inside, is typically the most cost-effective option. Excavating to install an exterior perimeter drain is typically the more expensive option.
There is not a “one-size-fits-all” waterproofing treatment. There are many variables that need to be considered when designing your basement waterproofing system: soil and site conditions, the way you plan to use your basement and your basement’s size, shape and construction details -just for starters.

A French drain (also known as a weeping tile, drain tile, perimeter drain or sub-surface drain) is a common solution for waterproofing a basement. It's a trench containing a perforated pipe that redirects surface water and groundwater away from the foundation. This type of drainage system can be an effective way to redirect water.
SUMP PUMP SYSTEMS
A sump pump is a mechanical device used to remove water from your basement or crawlspace. Sump pumps are particularly helpful in wet basement waterproofing. Water that arrives via the walls and floors is collected and pumped out of the home. Having a basement waterproofing system and/or a proper sump pump installed are options for keeping a wet lower level dry. Knowledgeable waterproofing experts, like those at Pro Chem Pest Management, will be able to help you determine the best solution and whether a sump pump is needed.
