Basement waterproofing is a common problem for homeowners. The first step in basement waterproofing is located outside the home. Look for areas that contribute to the collection of water next to your foundation. Filling those areas will flow water away from your foundation.
Next preventative basement waterproofing tip is to check your gutters for debris. Downspouts should extend at lease 8 feet from the house. Service walks that settled and slope back to the house should be adjusted to flow away from your foundation.
When soil around your basement foundation becomes water saturated, hydrostatic pressure forces water into your basement through the floor and wall joint creating a wet, leaky basement.

This easy to install hollow (PVC) baseboard waterproofing system collects seeping water and quietly drains all basement water away.
