Basement Flooding After Rain: 3 Essential Facts You Should Know

Schedule A Free Inspection

When it comes to basements, water intrusion is a common concern due to the porous nature of concrete and the presence of cracks, holes, and joints. Despite building codes mandating certain preventive measures, such as footing drains and dampproofing, these solutions often fall short, requiring extensive maintenance or replacement. In this article, we explore the reasons behind basement leaks and introduce an ideal solution that can effectively protect your basement: interior drainage systems.

1. Why Basements Leak: Understanding the Imperfect Concrete Structure

Basements are prone to water intrusion due to porous concrete with cracks, holes, and joints. Building codes mandating footing drains and dampproofing fall short as water can still penetrate. Damproofing and footing drains can’t provide a long-term solution, often requiring extensive excavation for maintenance or replacement.

2. The Ideal Solution: Interior Drainage Systems

Interior drainage systems are highly effective in preventing basement flooding and managing water intrusion without the need for extensive yard excavation. They offer quick installation and easy maintenance, making them a convenient solution for homeowners.
