The first moisture defense system in your home is the basement drainage system. This system drains surface water out of your yard and away from your home. If you see water pooling in your yard, consider investing in basement drainage today. The main components of the basement drainage system are the gutters, downspouts, grading around the home, the catch basins and grates and the drywells. These carry excess rainwater away and prevent puddles from forming around your foundation and seeping into the concrete.
The next system is the exterior drainage system. This system keeps moisture away from your basement by reducing the groundwater around your home. The first part is the waterproof membrane which is installed on the exterior foundation walls. Next, a drainage board covered in dimples is applied to the wall. The dimples create space that allows water to run down the wall into the drain pipes below, where it is carried away.
The interior drainage system is the last line of defense, and it helps remove water from your basement. The water is collected by channels, and pipes which drain into the sump pit. The pit stores the water until it can be pumped out of the home by the sump pump. The unique bell-shape of our sump pit allows for the sump pump to run 40% less often, conserving life. It is a good idea to have a battery backup sump pump in case the power goes out or in case the primary sump pump becomes overloaded.
In addition to all of these waterproofing systems, we also offer vapor barriers for crawlspace encapsulation. This keeps your crawlspace dry and safe from moisture or mold growth. Call Rapid Foundation Repair today for more information.
