Keep The Basement Dry

Keep Your Basement Dry!

A basement represents a huge amount of space in your home -- an entire floor's worth! When a basement is allowed to flood or grow mould, that valuable space is wasted.

Even if your basement is free of flooding, it won't be usable for storage or living space if it's damp, musty, and filled with mould. So the key to a quality foundation waterproofing project is to waterproof the space and keep it free of humidity.

    Customer Testimonial

              We have been very impressed with your company. It is only two weeks ago today that we first talked to you about the problems in our cellar. Now the work proposed by Tim has been completed and we feel much more relaxed about the future weather. All along we have felt comfortable with your proposals and that we were in experienced hands. Yesterday Shaun arrived before 8 am and didn't leave until almost 8 pm when the work was fully completed. He worked very hard all day and treated our house with respect. He was polite and courteous and happy to answer any (probably silly) questions we had. It has been a pleasure to engage with your company and I would highly recommend you to anyone facing the issues we had. You may be interested to know that we contacted another, more local company on 31 May and we are still waiting for their proposals!!

Turn Your Basement Into Dry, Usable Space

To be able to use your basement, you're going to need to count on it to be dry -- and to stay dry. If the space can't be relied on to stay dry, you probably won't feel comfortable investing in finishing your basement, storing your valuables there, or making personal use of the space.

If your basement is flooding or damp, it's time to reclaim that space! At Basement Systems, we recommend you take the following steps to reclaim your basement -- permanently!

Waterproofing The Basement

If your basement is flooding, you have a serious problem! A wet basement will lower the value of your home by 10% or more, while the flooded water damages your walls, floors, and stored items. As mould begins to grow, it will create an unhealthy environment in your home.

Installing a sump pump system at the low spot in your basement, with a drainage system along the perimeter walls will intercept groundwater before it enters your home.

We recommend waterproofing the basement from the interior rather than the exterior. Basement Systems UK Dealers have successfully installed interior systems in hundreds of thousands of homes in the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States over the past 20 years.

We've found them to be faster to install, much less expensive, and more successful than exterior waterproofing systems. We also appreciate that there's no need to excavate the exterior of the home, which is damaging to landscaping and your yard. Finally, an interior system can be readily and easily serviced should there be any issue.

Installing A Backup Sump Pump System

A sump pump system will stop working if you have one pump and that pump stops working.

Sump pumps can sometimes clog and like other mechanical utilities in your home, they'll eventually wear out. Additionally, a blown fuse, power outage, or accidental unplugging of a sump pump will stop its operation. Sooner or later a single sump pump will fail. When it does, you're most likely going to find out only when your basement floods.

A battery backup sump pump is your best line of defense against flooding due to sump pump failure. Our UltraSump® Battery Backup Sump Pump can pump out more than 11,500 gallons of water on a fully charged battery -- enough water to fill a small swimming pool!

Additionally, our system includes an alarm system, which will sound off to notify you that it's running. Our alarm can even be hooked into your home security system so you can be notified by a call on your cell phone!
