If your foundation has ever leaked or flooded, then you should consider a quality foundation waterproofing system. Without foundation waterproofing, water problems never get better, they only get worse. Even if water leaks are uncommon, your home's air quality can be impacted and your ability to finish your basement is restricted.

Midwest Basement Tech's waterproofing system is a sub-floor drainage system engineered specifically to solve foundation water problems effectively without worry of clogging from soils under the floor. Our systems can be designed to meet the needs of any home, regardless of age or size.

40 years of on the job experience has gone into engineering the Midwest Basement Tech waterproofing system. We install closed drainage systems which utilize a wall vapor barrier to direct water down into the sub-floor drainage. Then, our powerful, patented sump pumps pump water out of the home.

When you consider the risks that a wet foundation poses to your family’s health, the increased resale value of your home after waterproofing, and the risk of a flooded basement or crawlspace without waterproofing, the decision becomes easy.

Basement Waterproofing FAQs

What Is Hydrostatic Pressure?

Hydrostatic pressure is caused when water pressure builds up outside a foundation. The weight of the water pushes downward until it finds the path of least resistance, and since a basement is nothing but a hole in the ground it is easy to see why it would come in the small seam at the floor / wall seam.
It is usually recommended to discharge the water at least 8 feet or more away from the foundation. We accomplish this by installing an anti-freeze device and a solid pipe out to a yard drain. This pipe is buried underneath the sod and is hardly noticeable. 

How Much Does It Cost To Have My Basement Waterproofed?

It depends on different factors such as the size of your basement, the type of foundation and the type of water problem you are experiencing. Generally the average 32ft x 24 ft basement will cost anywhere from $5000.00 to $10,000 depending on what type of equipment, battery backup system, etc. Financing options are available, and several things can be done to keep the cost down. For example some people will install just the sump pump system to start. 

What Is GrateDrain™?

GrateDrain™ is a dual chamber system that is designed to accept ground water faster than any other drainage pipe on the market, yet it is placed just under the floor in front of the footer. This design allows ground water to only be pumped if water is going to come on the basement floor and doing so quickly when called upon to work.

What Is GrateSump™?

GrateSump™ is our specially designed sump pump collection system. It was designed by someone who installed thousands of sump pump systems over the years. It is not as deep as other sump liners on the market and it will not encourage undermining of the foundation. We use our FastSump to pump the ground water out and away from the foundation.

We are in business to create healthy, livable spaces for families. There are many ways to lower the humidity in a basement or crawl space. Dehumidifiers are a good start, and can greatly alleviate basement moisture issues. Unfortunately, they are rarely enough to solve the problem.

We typically start by installing a wall vapor barrier along with a ground water control system to reduce the amount of moisture that enters the basement. Because condensation forms on cold surfaces in the late spring, summer and fall months, a dehumidifier is typically still necessary to ensure a clean and comfortable space all year round.

Contact us at 844-649-8855 to have one of our expert project managers assess and recommend the ideal moisture control option for you.
