A small amount of water in your basement might not seem like a big issue. However, ignoring this could lead to water damaging the structural stability of your home in Alberta, potentially resulting in significant repair costs.

Fortunately, Groundworks offers a solution to keep your foundation dry and secure. We present the AquaStop BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage System — the ultimate protection against basement water intrusion. In the following sections, we will discuss how this product operates, when it might be necessary, and the installation process.

What Is the BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage System?

Poor drainage often results in damp basements. That’s why we recommend our AquaStop BasementGutter™ system. This system, which we can install in your basement, helps direct unwanted water towards a sump pump.

One of the major advantages of the BasementGutter™ system is its ability to prevent mud clogs in your home’s sewer system, which can block proper water drainage. The end result is a drier, more secure property.
