Living with a basement prone to leaks is no fun. If you’re dealing with this in your home, you’ve probably noticed some uncomfortable side effects—and they’ll only get worse if you ignore the problem.
This is where the BasementGutter™ Internal Drainage System comes in. Expertly engineered, it provides long-lasting protection against basement water.
As the Southeast’s leading specialists in basement waterproofing, our team at AFS is committed to delivering quality service and solutions that actually work.
This page will help you understand why internal drainage is so important and why BasementGutter™ is the best option on the market. That way, you can protect the things you love and keep your home secure.
What is BasementGutter™ Internal Drainage?
Our skilled crew at AFS recognizes the challenges of dealing with ineffective systems like footing drains and floor drains, leading to a damp basement.
To combat this, we present a top-notch substitute. BasementGutter™ Internal Drainage is a cutting-edge drainage system applied along the interior border of your basement. It skillfully redirects water coming from the walls or infiltrating through wall-floor joints to your sump pump for expulsion.
The implementation is performed in the sub-floor, cleverly situated above the footing and distanced from the “mud zone,” ensuring a blockage-free design. A 3/8” wall flange makes certain any water seeping from the walls is channeled into the BasementGutter™ system.
This drainage system is pivotal in a holistic home waterproofing plan, promising you tranquility and a wholesome living space.
Signs You Need Internal Drainage
If you’ve observed any of the following indicators, think about incorporating an internal drainage system:
- Water in your basement
- Wet basement walls
- Basement window leaks
- High basement humidity
- Mold growth
- Musty basement smells
These concerns can develop and intensify quickly, leading to severe damage. At the first sign of these symptoms, reach out to a reputable basement waterproofing team like AFS without delay.
Addressing these concerns promptly can spare you from extensive destruction and high repair costs.
Is Internal Drainage Necessary?
Absolutely. Not having a proficient internal drainage system can result in a multitude of issues, including structural damage and higher repair expenses. Immediate action is recommended.
DIY repairs or makeshift solutions are typically ineffective and can complicate matters. It’s best to entrust basement waterproofing to seasoned experts, like the team at AFS.
Incorporating BasementGutter™ in our extensive home protection package guarantees your property’s durability and safety.
