Although every basement is unique with how and why water is intruding into the living space, there are a few common solutions, and methods to keeping your living space dry. We have seen many wet basements in the Greater Cincinnati area, and although each basement has its own challenges, we can provide a solution that will keep you living spaces dry!
The Industry standard is an Interior Drain Tile System will relieve the hydro-static pressure that is caused from the water that gathers around the foundation and footing of the home and redirects it to an outlet in one of the predetermined safe zones, in which the water will be directed away from any potential seepage points.
The design and the installation of the interior drain tile system is simple to understand, but yet a very labor intensive system to install. This service involves excavating to the footing of the foundation wall, relieving the hydro-static pressure, and installing a 4″ drain tile within a bed of drain gravel. The drain tile is then connected to a sump basin in which the water will be directed, them removed from the interior of the living space and away from the homes foundation.
Often times, once a basement has had the proper water proofing management, home owners are left with the unsightly look of water damage and water residue due to years of moisture and dampness.
A common solution to brightening up any basement living space, is the installation of our Bright Space Wall Liners and Wall Panels. In some cases our wall liners are the perfect solution to old stone foundation walls, or our panels for your block our poured basement walls.
