Basement waterproofing will prevent flooded basements in Verona
Verona Township is located in Essex County, N.J. Verona is home to over 13,300 residents and covers 2.7 square miles (U.S. Census 2010).
Verona was part of the Horseneck Tract purchase from the Lenape Indians in 1701. The land purchased resembled the shape of a Horse’s neck and head.
The area was known as Vernon Valley in the 1800’s. Verona is a derivative of this valley name.
In 1892, Verona left Caldwell Township to become Verona Township by an Act of the N.J. State Legislature. In 1902, Verona Township split between Verona Township (later Cedar Grove) and Verona Borough. In 1982, Verona Borough was reincorporated by the N.J. State Legislature to be a Township.
The nation’s oldest flagmaker, Annin & Co., had its manufacturing plant in Verona.
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.
A wet basement occurs from one or more of the four ways that water enters
Water through the floor
Water through the walls
Water vapor through the walls and floor
Humidity through the air
