At BDry of Kentucky serving Southern, Central and Eastern Kentucky, we are waterproofing experts. Our basement waterproofing system is designed to address the five most common ways groundwater enters your basement or crawlspace.
HOW OUR BASEMENT WATERPROOFING SYSTEM WORKS
As a water table rises and the french drain that the builder installed inevitably fails, the water builds up and travels over the footing and under the footing, directly into the BDry high capacity pipe. Water that enters through cracks in the wall will travel through the weep holes and enter the BDry pipe. This water seepage is directed by the BDry wall membrane also into the BDry pipe.
Gravity flow is the most cost effective method to removing water, but is not always an option. When gravity flow is not possible a sump pump and pit will be installed. Sump pumps are used to remove water from your basement or crawlspace. Having a basement waterproofing system and/or a proper sump pump installed are options for keeping a wet lower level dry. During our estimate process, we will determine if a sump pump is required or not.
We can install dehumidifiers in high-humidity areas to mitigate moisture buildup. Controlling basement and crawlspace moisture is crucial to protecting your home. If there is a general dampness in your basement or crawlspace but no identifiable sources of water entry, we can install a powerful dehumidifier as the best course of action.
