Q. I HAVE WATER COMING INTO MY BASEMENT AND IT FLOODS THE ENTIRE AREA. HOW DO I PREVENT THIS?
We would design a drain system that goes around the perimeter of basement that would drain to a sump pump. Next, we would inspect outside of the home to pinpoint any areas of intrusion and develop a plan. Some exterior options would be installing down spout extensions on the gutters to push the water away from the home and foundation. We would also inspect the gutters on the home itself and see if that could be the root of the problem. There are a variety of ways water could enter your home from exterior factors.
