Water Below Basement Floor
After we removed a portion of concrete where the lateral drainage system will be installed, we were able to see where the water had been exposed to the basement floor. Over time if this wasn't fixed, it would continue to cause erosion in the soil, making the crack larger.
Installing a Lateral Drainage System
We first installed a full perimeter drainage system that will intercept the water before it reaches your floor crack, ensuring a dry basement and eliminating the problem. Continue to next photo to see the lateral line installed.

Trench Drain Lewisport, KY
If you have a doorway or stairway that leads to the outside, you'll want to have a trench drain installed in front of it. A trench drain is a half-round pipe with a grate that fits on top of it. The grate is slightly below the floor to catch any water that may enter from the outside. This way you are protected against leakage from a hatchway door, a sliding door, or even a garage door.
When your gutters discharge water next to your foundation, much of it can seep directly into the soil around your home. This can significantly add to basement leaking, and it can even contribute to foundation issues. By installing any combination of our downspout extensions on your gutters, this problem can be averted. Our team extended their downspout extension 125 feet, buried underground and keeping roof water away from your foundation.
