BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage System

Ohio Basement Authority and The Basement Guys have now merged.

Dealing with a leaky, damp basement can be a homeowner’s nightmare. Not only does it create a hazardous living environment, but it also threatens the structural integrity of your home. 

That’s where Ohio Basement Authority’s AquaStop BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage System comes in—offering a definitive, lasting solution to your water leakage problem. As the leading authority in basement waterproofing throughout Ohio and Northern Kentucky, we provide a comprehensive drainage solution tailored to your needs. 

 This page provides insights into why our specially designed interior drainage system is the best choice for maintaining a dry basement and ensuring the safety of your home. 

What is AquaStop BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage? 

Our experienced team at Ohio Basement Authority understands how frustrating it can be for systems like footing drains and floor drains to fail, resulting in a wet basement. 

That’s why we provide a high-quality alternative. AquaStop BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage is a state-of-the-art drainage system installed along the interior perimeter of your basement. This system efficiently redirects water that trickles down the walls or seeps through wall-floor joints to your sump pump for removal. 

The installation is executed in the sub-floor, strategically placed above the footing and away from the “mud zone,” guaranteeing an anti-clog design. A 3/8” wall flange ensures any water leaking from the walls moves downward into the BasementGutter™ system. 

This drainage system isn’t just a stand-alone solution; it forms an essential part of a comprehensive whole-home waterproofing strategy, offering you peace of mind and a healthier living space. 

Signs You Need Interior Drainage 

If you’ve noticed any of the following symptoms, consider installing an interior drainage system: 

These problems can start small and quickly escalate, resulting in serious damage. When you notice these symptoms, contact a local professional basement waterproofing company like Ohio Basement Authority immediately. 

Addressing these issues early can save you from extensive damage and costly repairs. 

Is Interior Drainage Necessary? 

The answer is a resounding yes. Failure to install an effective interior drainage system can lead to many problems, including structural damage and increased repair costs. Acting sooner rather than later is crucial.  

We do not recommend DIY repairs or quick fixes, as they are temporary bandages that can be expensive and complicated. It’s best to leave basement waterproofing to experienced professionals, like our team at Ohio Basement Authority. 

Incorporating AquaStop BasementGutter™ into our comprehensive whole-home solution assures the safety and longevity of your property. 

What Are the Benefits of the AquaStop BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage System? 

  • Prevents Water Damage: The BasementGutter™ system quickly collects and diverts water away from walls and floors before it has time to cause expensive damage. Your belongings remain dry and mold growth is inhibited. 
  • Compatible with Other Solutions: The drainage channels are designed to be installed with our other basement waterproofing solutions. We can also integrate other basement repair and foundation repair systems with it. 
  • Extends Life of Foundation: By keeping water away from concrete walls and floors, BasementGutter™ protects your foundation from deterioration and cracking. 
  • Provides Peace of Mind: Our reliable interior drainage system gives you confidence that water is under control. No more worrying every time it rains!

  • Place BasementGutter™ in the trench and backfill with stone. 
  • Set a vapor barrier on top.
