 Wet Basement Alabama Solutions from Grout Tech

The first step in waterproofing your home is to make sure you have a good surface drainage system. This means installing properly working gutters and downspouts, and a drainpipe system that will direct collected water away from the foundation. The ground around the home should also be graded or angled downward enough that rainwater will runoff correctly, instead of collecting near the base of your home.

A sealed interior drainage system will also help keep your home dry and mold-free. Grout Tech offers sealed interior drainage systems as well as quality sump pump and sump pit systems from ECP, a reliable provider of waterproofing and foundation repair products.

For the exterior drainage system to be properly waterproofed, the foundation walls should be cleaned and coated with waterproofing material. Then a properly sloped drain pipe system should be installed to carry the water away from the home. Finally, the drain pipe should be covered with clean rock and clay soil that will force water away and discourage erosion.

Grout Tech is able to install and repair all of the systems necessary to keep your home safe and dry. For all of your wet basement Birmingham needs, contact us today.
