Sub-Slab Drainage Systems
Every house is unique, so every basement drainage system should be too. Some homes need the extra protection of a sub-slab system in order to prevent basement leaks. Contact All-Dry of Ohio today at (800) 255-3792 to learn more about our basement waterproofing services in Ohio.
Who Needs a Sub-Slab System?Although a sub-slab drainage system installation is more invasive than our patented waterproofing system, it’s useful for homes that may have more demanding waterproofing needs due to one or more of the following causes:
- A high water table or nearby spring can increase hydrostatic pressure and the likelihood of leaks.
- Poor soil, such as soil with a clay texture, is incapable of absorbing as much moisture.
- If your house is on a lower level than the surrounding landscape, surface runoff can make its way into your basement.
- Poor exterior grading, inadequate gutters, damaged foundations, and landscaping can also contribute to basement flooding.
- Sub-slab systems are ideal for homes with concrete block walls.
Our Basement Drainage System
Installing a sub-slab system is a job for our experienced basement waterproofing specialists. First, we’ll remove an 8–14 inch strip of concrete around the entire perimeter of your basement and remove dirt and gravel until we reach the level of the foundation’s footing.
This is filled with gravel to create a trench that leads to a sump pump. A perforated drainage pipe is placed into the trench and covered with gravel and a waterproof membrane. Then, a shield strip is installed around the basement perimeter in order to create a firm seal. Finally, the concrete is replaced. Since every part of this system is beneath the floor, it’s invisible after completion, so that it won’t get in the way of your next basement finishing project.
