What Causes Basement Waterproofing Problems?
Many factors contribute to an unhealthy basement, including hydrostatic pressure, soil movement, plumbing leaks, water infiltration through foundation cracks, high humidity levels, and inadequate ventilation and insulation, resulting in condensation. Poor drainage from ineffective gutters, downspouts, and improper landscape grading also contribute to groundwater accumulation near the foundation. It is crucial to address basement cracks, enhance drainage systems, and ensure proper ventilation and insulation to maintain a safe, dry, and healthy home.

Sump Pump Systems
Groundworks employs submersible sump pump systems for basement water management. The sump pump, positioned in a basin at the lowest point of a home, is activated by a float. It addresses rising water levels from rainfall or snowmelt by channeling the water through interconnected pipes and directing it to secure locations outside. Sump pumps are a crucial defense mechanism against water intrusion.
A sump pump automatically removes excess water from your basement, preventing flooding, protecting valuables and appliances, and creating a healthier environment by preventing mold growth.
When necessary, we install interior drainage systems to complement the sump pump system, redirecting water flow away from vulnerable areas. This integrated approach ensures a healthy home environment, preventing basement flooding and moisture damage.
Groundworks’ AquaStop FreezeGuard™ enhances sump pump reliability by providing backup to the exterior discharge line, preventing basement flooding and sump pump burnout. It acts as a safety net, allowing water to escape through strategically placed holes, averting basement overflow, sustaining sump pump functionality, and activating during freezing conditions. This basement waterproofing solution ensures a secure discharge line, crucial in cold climates. It reassures homeowners during emergencies and safeguards against potential water-related basement issues.
AquaStop BasementGutter™ Interior Drain System
Groundworks’ BasementGutter™ Interior Drain System is a clog-free French drain solution that addresses water infiltration by collecting moisture from the basement walls and the wall-floor joint.

Specially designed pipes trap water at vulnerable points and channel it to the powerful AquaStop Basement Single sump pump, ensuring efficient water removal and a permanently dry basement.
