Every year homeowners in the U.S. spend millions of dollars restoring and replacing property damaged in basement floods. A single inch of water in your basement can cause thousands of dollars in damages. To make matters worse, in most cases, the typical homeowner's insurance won't cover the damages - and even flood insurance establishes coverage limitations when it comes to basements.
According to Floodsmart.gov, there is no such a thing as a safe zone when it comes to basement flood. Every year, over 1/4 of all insurance claims are filed by owners of homes in low-to-moderate flood risk areas.

We use CleanSpace, a heavy, durable plastic liner - like a pool liner, for lining dirt crawl spaces. It is perfect as a basement wall solution for stone wall basements. Because stone walls are not flat, they are not candidates for BrightWall paneling. The CleanSpace provides a vapor barrier, drains water behind it, and dramatically brightens the basement. It will have little waves in it because it comes off of a roll rather than in panels, but the CleanSpace is very durable and nearly impossible to rip.
Once the water is pumped out of your home, that doesn't mean it will stay out. It is essential to have your drainage lines and downspout strategically placed to prevent water from finding its way back into your home. These drainage lines and downspout extensions were specifically placed to avoid water coming back into the building.
This note comes with great appreciation for the quality work done on my damp and wet basement of 30 years...
