    TrenchDrain in Rockville, MD

    In this half finished basement water was staying as the bottom of the bilco doors and needed some sort of drain to remove the water from the door area. Our team dug out a space at the bottom of the stairwell to install our TrenchDrain sub-floor drain system. This drain is connected to our WaterGuard system that will flow any water that the drain intakes to the sump pump system, which then pumps the water out and safely away from the home.

    The homeowner was getting a mass amount of water in the basement and the bottom of the stairwell had no access to drain the water. We dug out a trench in between the door and stairwell to install our TrenchDrain Entry Drainage system that is designed to capture the surface water. The heavy-duty plastic drain is reinforced which prevents rust, moisture damage and averts water coming into the home, keeping your area dry.

    Waterproofing and Sump Pump System Upgrade in Catonsville, MD

    This customer contacted us looking to waterproof her basement as well as upgrade her sump pump to a newer system with an airtight lid and a battery-powered backup. We chose to offer her the Supersump System. This system features the Zoeller M63 1/3 HP pump, capable of pumping 2,650 gallons per hour, a Waterwatch Alarm System that sounds off if the water rises above the point where the pump should turn on, the Superliner basin and an airtight lid. This system also features a CleanPump Stand, which serves to elevate the the pump from any silt or sediment that may build up at the bottom of the basin. For the battery backup we installed the Ultrasump 4, which features an automatic switching system to keep your basement dry in case of a power outage, main pump failure, tripped breaker or simply an unplugged main pump.

    To further waterproof her basement this customer also chose our Waterguard French Drain System and our Cleanspace Wall Liner, which is a 100% waterproof plastic barrier that helps guide any water seepage down to the drainage system.

    At this home the owner had us install a drainage pipe about 19ft from the home. We were able to dig up the top soil and install the discharge line that is connected from the SumpPump. The advantages of having an outdoor discharge line is that it is not difficult to install, more cost efficient, and easier for our installers to come out and maintenance. The discharge line provides a secure way of having unwanted water flow safely from the SumpPump in basement to the outside of home.

Affordable, Certified Waterproofers for greater Baltimore, Philadelphia, West Chester, and Lancaster

Basement water problems are as old as the structures themselves. Water will leak into a basement through any opening it can, including your walls, floors, and the joints between them. Water can even pass through the concrete itself -- which is one reason why basements are notoriously damp, humid spaces.

Other companies might try to sell you on inferior basement waterproofing solutions. Our products have been developed, patented, and perfected by Basement Systems®, Inc. -- the world's largest network of basement waterproofing contractors.

From basement waterproofing in Philadelphia to basement wall crack repair services in Baltimore and Ellicott City, Basement Systems USA can help. Our basement experts will show you how we can customize your waterproofing solution to keep the basement dry all the time!

Exterior Excavation

Heavy equipment is brought in to dig out the entire perimeter of the basement. New drain lines are installed, and sometimes a waterproof coating is applied to foundation walls. This waterproofing strategy is expensive and often damages lawn and garden areas. Exterior drains are prone to clogging with silt and roots over time.

Interior Subfloor Drain

This drain line is installed underneath the basement floor, just inside the foundation walls. The hidden drainage system brings water to a sump pit, where a sump pump automatically pumps it outside. Also known as a French Drain, this system is not prone to clogging; it’s reliable and easy to service.

Interior Baseboard System

A hollow plastic baseboard is installed along the base of basement walls to form a drainage channel that directs water to a sump pump system. A baseboard-type drainage system is sometimes recommended when the basement slab is too thin to accommodate a French Drain.

Negative-side Sealant

This waterproofing technique involves "painting" basement walls and floors with a waterproof, cement-based coating that's supposed to seal out moisture. Even when applied correctly, this thin membrane usually fails in response to prolonged hydrostatic pressure from outside the foundation.
