As recognized leaders in basement waterproofing in Northern Ohio, we deliver customized drainage remedies that align perfectly with your home’s needs. 

By reading this page, you’ll understand why our interior drainage system is the premier choice for maintaining a moisture-free basement and safeguarding your residence. 

Understanding BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage 

Our team at Ohio Basement Systems recognizes the inconvenience of dealing with ineffective solutions like floor and footing drains that can make your basement prone to water accumulation. 

That’s why we offer an elite alternative: AquaStop™ BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage. This advanced drainage system is implemented along the interior periphery of your basement, redirecting water seeping from walls or wall-floor junctions to a sump pump for removal. 

The installation process is diligently carried out in the sub-floor, precisely positioned above the footing and clear of the “mud zone,” guaranteeing a clog-resistant design. A 3/8” wall flange allows any water trickling from the walls to be channeled directly into the BasementGutter™ system. 

This system is an integral component of a robust whole-home waterproofing approach, assuring your peace of mind and a healthier living environment.

How Ohio Basement Systems Installs BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage

After a detailed inspection and confirmation of the need for our drainage system, our certified installation process consists of the following stages: 

  • Excavate 6-12 inches of concrete around the interior perimeter. 
  • Drill weep holes in the lower blocks of concrete walls to facilitate water flow. 
  • Install BasementGutter™ in the trench and backfill with stone. 
  • Place a vapor barrier on top. 
  • Connect the drainage channels to the sump pump
  • Restore the concrete floor with fresh cement. 

Our approach to basement waterproofing also involves fitting a wall vapor barrier, a dehumidifier, and an anti-freeze exterior sump pump discharge line attachment
