Every home in America needs a heatthy basement. Over 40% of the air you breathe on the 1st floor of your home comes from your basement or crawl space through a natural occurrence called stack-effect. If your basement or crawl space is not healthy, then your home is not healthy. While a wet & damp basement or crawl space can create an unhealthy indoor riving environment, even a small corrective step can make a major difference in someone’s home or workplace.
GrateDrain Closed Basement Waterproofing System
The Grate Drain solves the most difficult basement water problems. Protect your basement with the most advanced technological water control system available today. The Grate Drain is designed with large dual-chambers that direct ground water from beneath the basement floor and the wall/footing joint to the sump liner. The Grate Drain’s ability to accept ground water through large passageways (punch holes) from either direction is a powerful advantage when compared to other drainage systems. Other drainage systems only allow water to enter from one direction or allow water to pass right through their drainage pipe from the wall/footing joint and bring ground water under the basement slab instead of directing it to the sump liner.
Water can enter your home anywhere there is an opening in the foundation wall. This not only includes cracks in the walls and floors, but pipe penetrations and gaps around basement windows are also susceptible to leaking. We provide patented, warrantied methods for repairing cracks in basements and crawl spaces. Our solutions provide lasting results that are compatible with your perimeter drainage system and will not crumble, flake off your walls, or fail due to the natural expansion and shrinking of the concrete.
One of the more perplexing issues that homeowners face when it comes to basement water problems is how to stop water from rising up through their basement floor. Fortunately, basement floor cracks can be easily and effectively repaired as part of a proper perimeter drainage system.

Water will find its way into your basement in any way it can. Even if you seal off your concrete walls and install a perimeter drain, leaks can still occur through a variety of ways. One of the most common ways that water floods a basement is through your basement windows. Fortunately, basement window leaks can be fixed quickly, easily, and permanently by draining any leaking water into your perimeter drainage system.
