What is Basement Encapsulation?

Are you experiencing water in your basement, but not sure how to protect against it? In this video we will discuss what basement encapsulation is.

Waterproofing is the control and management of water that enters your home. This method uses drainage channels that are installed along the inside perimeter of your basement walls. (Drainage channels are somewhat like pipes that go under the concrete floor.) These channels collect the water and direct it to a hole dug in the floor, called the sump pump pit. The sump pump then expels it out of your home, usually 10-20 feet away from your foundation.
