French Drainage Systems
French Drains are a cost-effective way of keeping your basement dry. The methodology is to divert the water down to the drainage system that has “weep hole” piping that can then be channeled to mechanical pumps that will remove the water to the outside or you can just let the water drain into the ground if you don’t have a water table issue to deal with. While French Drainage Systems are an effective way of diverting the water from flooding your basement floors.
French Drainage Systems also known as Baseboard Drainage Systems have been around for 40-50 years and are considered on of the most effective as well cost-effective ways of keeping your home’s basement dry and clean. These methods are called Interior Waterproofing and the methods are widely used throughout the industry. The only issue with this as well as most interior waterproofing methods is they actually still allow the water to enter your home and then it’s diverted. Whenever possible you should consider using an Exterior Waterproofing method such as sealing your foundation perimeter from the outside so as to prevent any water from entering your home in the first place.

Exterior Basement Waterproofing is a much more labor intensive project and unfortunately so is the cost associated with it. Although you are paying much more up front for an exterior waterproofing project you will more than likely end your basement water intrusions for good! It requires digging out around your home with heavy equipment to expose the foundation so the walls can be waterproofed with a sealant that will make sure the water has nowhere to penetrate the foundation.
There are many materials that are used to to keep water from penetrating your home’s basement walls. Waterproofing Membranes which come in liquid form are applied to wht foundation and push back the water. They do degrade over time but combined with a properly installed exterior drainage system and adding a sealant to the wall before the membrane they will last for a very long time. But again it has to be said that exterior waterproofing of your home’s foundation is the best way to keep your basement clean and dry.

The majority of basement flooding problems are caused by hydrostatic pressure building up & coming into the floor/ wall cove joint. This can be rectified by installing a basement drainage system to remove the ground water away from the foundation.
Ask yourself these questions: Are the sump pumps in my home over 2 years old?
Have these been properly installed by a professional?
Sump pumps should run on the correct pump cycle for what it was designed for. If a pump was installed in an inadequatedly sized sump hole (pit), the pump will run on very short periods of time and then turn off, this often leads to it turning on and off in minutes and possible immediately after shutting off. This will lead to the pump failing far short of it’s expected lifetime.
Sump pump motors generally will last for years and years with the motor being capable of running for hours. The usual culprit in all of this is the pump switch which is prone to malfunction. This switch if it manages to stick…it will burn itself out. And if the switch does not work when the pump is supposed to turn on, this will lead to your basement floor flooding!
