For a typical basement, our BasementGutter™ system is the ideal choice for waterproofing. This French drain is designed to be installed below the floor slab, resting on top of the foundation footing. This keeps this drainage system out of the “mud zone,” where drains can clog.
Installation involves removing a section of the floor around the perimeter and creating a drainage trench. Sections of BasementGutter™ are then placed within the trench, resting on a bed of drainage stone, and the floor is restored.
A wall flange extends 3/8″ above the floor, allowing the drain to collect water leaking from the basement walls.
