Basement Waterproofing in Lexington KY

Water seepage in the basement isn’t fun. It can actually be a pain in the butt. In many cases, the solutions to basement waterproofing aren’t as conservative as repairing cracks. This is because the problems run much deeper than they appear. In many cases, a combination of waterproofing systems is required.

If you live in an area that is prone to flooding, your contractor will most likely propose that you have a French drain installed along your foundation. This will serve to direct water away from your foundation and into a drain or well from which it will be pumped.

When considering a French drain, you will have to choose between having it installed internally or on the exterior of your foundation.

Benefits of an Interior French Drain

  • Long term solution

If you haven’t finished your basement yet, now is a great time to have an interior drain tile installed. The solution will capture seepage from the wall and the floor, effectively keeping your basement dry for the long term. This means that you won’t have to remove your finished walls ever again.

  • Avoid wrecking your manicured lawn

Have you invested time and money in your landscaping? Having the French drain installed on the inside of the foundation will help you avoid wrecking your landscaping.

  • Save money and time

Exterior basement waterproofing is invasive and labor intensive. The area will have to be excavated to get to the footings of your foundation. This takes time and costs money. You can save a lot of money by opting for an interior French drain.

  • Protected from outside conditions

Having the drain tile installed on the interior protects the entire system from external conditions, such as soil condition, elements of the weather or even disruption or destruction by root systems. Your drain tile system will therefore last for longer with less need for maintenance.

  • It can be installed any time of the year

If you’re experiencing water problems, you don’t have to wait until the sun comes out to have the drain tile installed. Interior drain tile can be installed any time of the year regardless of the weather outside. It is therefore a great solution for emergency situations.

Before you make your decision, talk to a professional contractor. This will ensure that you are provided with information about the options available to you before making a decision. Choose the option that works best for you.
