Wet basement waterproofing with Life-of-House warranty Upper Saddle River, NJ 07458

The Borough of Upper Saddle River is located in Bergen County, N.J. The Borough covers 5.2 square miles and has 8,208 residents (U.S. Census 2010).

There are a number of theories on the origin of the name Saddle River, but the most likely is that it came from two Scotsmen exploring the area in the 1600s who thought it resembled the Sadle Burn in their homeland.

The Borough is named after the Saddle River. Dutch settlers built many mills in the area that were powered by the Saddle River.

The Borough was incorporated by an Act of the New Jersey State Legislature in 1894 from portions of Hohokus and Orvil Townships.

Upper Saddle River was primarily an agricultural community until after World War II, known for its apples and strawberries. The Borough remained small in population (under 500) until the 1950s when the zoning ordinance was passed.

The homes in Upper Saddle River are all on one acre lots and home to many NYC commuters.

Capillary veins are responsible for many wet basement problems

  • Rainwater gets pulled deeper into the ground by seepage and gravity.

  • As gravity pulls the ground water deeper into the soil, it moves sideways following the slope of the surrounding areas.

  • Top soil will absorb some of the water but as rain continues to fall the absorbent layers become even more saturated.

  • The water begins to follow the underground ‘paths of least resistance’ called Capillary Veins.

A French drain is the best choice for wet basement waterproofing

  • The French drain was named after Henry French and has been the basement waterproofing method of choice since 1859.

  • The French drain basement waterproofing system is designed to prevent 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.
