Basements are imperfect concrete structures built in soils that vary from region to region. Water in the soil leaking into basements is a problem that has troubled homeowners for more than 100 years. This water will enter the basement through the walls, floors, and joints between them. Over the years, contractors and engineers have developed a wide variety of methods to keep basements dry. Some of these methods are more effective than others.
There are many possible solutions, including:
- Exterior Excavation
- Interior Subfloor
- Interior Baseboard System
- Negative-side Sealant
Among the best of these methods is to install either an interior subfloor drainage system or a baseboard drainage system along the perimeter of the floor. There are a few challenges to this method however. One is to keep the drain from being clogged by mud over the years.
Many homeowners go years without a water problem and then develop one due to the existing sub-floor and sub-surface drains clogging with mud.
Another challenge for subfloor systems is to set up the system to accept water from the walls without leaving a large unsightly gap at the edge of the floor which can collect dirt and debris from the floor - another potential for clogging the drain.
Basement Systems' patented WaterGuard system is designed to meet these challenges and keep your basement dry permanently in central Iowa including Des Moines, Mason City, Waterloo, West Des Moines, Ames, Urbandale, Fort Dodge, Cedar Falls, Ankeny, Ottumwa, Marshalltown.

Initially, I was not sure if this was the right way to go to fix a leaky basement wall. I thought I needed to dig up the outside and reseal,but after talking to Jessi he convinced me this was the way to go. So far I am pleased with the work looks great

We were very pleased about the work done to our basement. However, we have never had a followup for them to show us how to torque the walls of our basement. I have called, and was told that the dept. in charge would get back to me, I am still waiting.
