You can clean your gutters and grade your flowerbeds and still get a wet basement
- A high water table will cause a wet basement on an older home.
- When the water table rises, it does not just rise at your house, because it did not rain on your house only.
- The rain usually falls over a wide area of many square miles so all this water goes into the earth at the same time.
- Water tables can become elevated when they receive more water than they drain off.
- This can be from unusually high amounts of rain, or excess water from higher elevations.
A French drain is the best choice for wet basement waterproofing
- The French drain basement waterproofing system is designed to prevent water from giving you a wet basement.
- The French drain is installed inside the basement, below the floor, around the perimeter.
- This French Drain controls the water, delivers it to the sump pump(s), and discharges it out of the house.
