This house pictured to the right really needs gutters and down spouts to discharge rain water at least 8 feet away from the foundation. Rain rarely falls straight down, more often the rain is blowing against one side of the house. Heavy concentrations of water will run down the face of the wall next to the foundation.
Wet basements are common from the mid-west to the east cost and often found under newer homes. A variety of conditions will cause a basement to get wet and most can be dried up by putting gutters and down spouts on the house. Some will be dried up by filling low areas around the foundation with dirt and sod. The more severe wet basements can easily be dried up with a do-it-yourself above floor basement waterproofing system like the SquidGee Dry System.
The many advantages of an above floor channel are - no need to dig up your basement, no hassle of busting up your cement basement floor, no expensive cost of hiring a contractor if you install a DIY basement system. A system like the SquidGee Dry is easy to install, even for novice do-it-yourselfers. The only skill needed is the ability to follow our detailed instruction guide. We have created an installation guide describes each step throughly alongside a photo for each step in the installation process.
