Your Basement is Not a Pizza

Your Basement in Not a Pizza - Image 1

You may eat pizza one slice at a time, but that’s no way to approach basement waterproofing. Piecemealing basement fixes based on what you can afford at one point in time means that you are always a step behind the full protection needed to keep your basement dry. Water will find the weakest spot and move toward that point of entry. You’re just shifting that weak spot when you don’t waterproof the entire space. The answer is a holistic approach.


We know there are so many things to consider when waterproofing a basement, especially when you’re making decisions during a flood. Cost is a major concern for most homeowners because there’s a price tag that comes with this kind of work. However, price is not the only thing to consider when deciding on a fix. You want to find a durable, permanent solution that will be cost-effective in the long run. It’s a long view, but we’ve seen a lot during the past 40 years of helping homeowners just like you and a temporary, DIY solution always costs you more over time.


The most effective basement waterproofing method is called the interior water drainage system. This system is the best option to address intrusive water due to hydrostatic pressure. This happens when ground water forces its way in through basement walls, floors or foundation. Our WaterGuard drainage system circles the perimeter of your basement, capturing any water seeping in. Our powerful and reliable TripleSafe sump pump will discharge that water out of the house leaving your basement dry. We also recommend installing a SaniDry dehumidifier to remove excess moisture from the air.
