BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage System

Coping with a leaky, damp basement can turn into a homeowner’s worst ordeal. It not only creates an unsafe living space but also jeopardizes the structural soundness of your residence. 

This is where Baker’s Waterproofing AquaStop BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage System steps in, offering a definitive and enduring solution to your water leakage woes. As the foremost authority in basement waterproofing across Pennsylvania and West Virginia, we deliver a comprehensive drainage remedy tailored precisely to your requirements. 

On this page, you’ll learn why our specially engineered interior drainage system stands as the optimal choice for maintaining a dry basement and ensuring the security of your home.

What is AquaStop BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage? 

The AquaStop BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage system is a cutting-edge drainage system installed along the interior perimeter of your basement. This system effectively redirects water that runs down the walls or seeps through wall-floor joints to your sump pump for efficient removal. 

The installation is carefully done in the sub-floor, strategically positioned above the footing and away from the “mud zone,” ensuring an anti-clog design. With a 3/8” wall flange, any water seeping from the walls is directed downward into the BasementGutter™ system. 

This drainage system is more than just an isolated fix; it constitutes an integral part of a comprehensive whole-home waterproofing strategy, providing you with peace of mind and a healthier living environment.
