Wet Basements

It’s something no homeowner wants to see, water in your basement. Basements are the most flood-prone areas of any home. Both exterior and interior French drains provide effective protection against flooding and water damage in your basement. These systems are your best chance of averting flooding, water damage, and mold in your basement. But how can you know which type of system best meets your home’s needs? Here’s what you need to know, and why you can’t ignore it.

A wet basement is more than just a nuisance. Water causes foundation damage and mold growth, among other things.  Left unchecked, your foundation will crack and decay, mold will form and pollute the air you breathe, and moisture will deteriorate the wooden structure that holds up your walls and flooring. This is likely caused by poor drainage in your yard.
