Basement Systems for Waterproofing

BDWS Interior Baseboard Channel

Our most popular product, both for purchasing and installation, was a revolutionized waterproofing method, developed back in the 1970s, to capture and control water seepage at the primary source of entry. This method is both time-efficient to install and minimally disruptive to the interior surroundings.

BDWS Hybrid Interior French Drain

This is an age-old remedy used to resolve water seepage issues in substructures. Since its creation, advancements have been made to enhance this method, which now provides extremely effective solutions in order to help restore basements to their intended use and free them of water seepage for good.

BDWS Real Dry™ System

This system also utilizes the method of capturing and channeling water seepage from the most frequent point of entry, but has been enhanced with fittings for the mounts, joints and corners to resemble a customized wood baseboard application.

Sump Pumps

We carry a variety of sump pumps as these are essential for water seepage to be extricated from your basement or crawlspace.

  • Battery Powered Back-up Pumps – To give you peace of mind, especially if your electricity goes out, this system will keep working to keep your basement or lower level dry and secure.
  • Water Powered Back-up Pumps – Another sump pump with an alternate energy source, runs off of your water supply to keep working even if you lose power.
  • Sealed Sump Pits & Liners – All of these products include features and benefits necessary to provide effective results to their applications. We’ll accommodate you with the right size needed for your exact structure.
  • Sump Pump Alarms – With our large selection of water level alarms, one of our inspectors will help to determine which alarm is most effective and appropriate for your pump, pit, and personal needs.

BDWS Interior French Drain System Installation

The assessment of waterproofing systems requires a certain level of expertise, even in crawlspaces. Our seasoned professionals know the variances in crawlspace waterproofing. Once a proper French drain system for permanently capturing and removing your water seepage has been installed, you will enjoy years of worry-free living.

Crawlspace Sump Pump Installation

Just as in interior sump pump installations, crawlspace sump pumps must be properly sized in order to meet the efficiencies that are required to extricate water seepage from crawlspaces in a timely manner. Once installed, each sump pump application is tested to ensure it has the proficiency level that is needed. Be sure to ask about encapsulating your crawlspace for added moisture protection.

Crawlspace Encapsulation

The true intent of a crawlspace is to have a substructure that is a strong, moisture-free, and odor-free barrier. Most crawlspaces offer neither. Instead, many of them produce damp conditions that promote odors, attract pests, and create an unhealthy living experience overall. In addition to decreasing moisture, crawlspace encapsulation offers homeowners decreased utility bills and radon gas prevention.

Crawlspace Venting System

A properly vented crawlspace helps to avoid a variety of issues in your structure. First and foremost, it reduces the humidity levels, which can eliminate musty odors. Since at least 40 percent of crawlspace air escapes upward due to structural stacking pressures, lower humidity levels in the crawlspace mean better air quality on the first floor of a structure. In recent years, it has also been determined that rising radon gas filtration into structures can be reduced, or even eliminated, through proper crawlspace ventilation. Ask a BDWS professional to educate you on the full list of benefits that come with proper crawlspace ventilation.

Crawlspace Dehumidification System

Crawlspace dehumidification systems come in all shapes and sizes. The overall intent is to remove the humidity in your crawlspace. Assessing the cubic feet and air flow mass needed to remediate the humidity levels has to be accurately determined by a certified professional. Without such calculations, homeowners can expend too much, resulting in higher utility bills and well-below-average humidity levels, potentially creating adverse structural conditions.

Carbon Fiber Wall Supports

Only an experienced professional should handle the process of remediating bowed and structurally unsound exterior basement walls with carbon fiber wall supports. The entire structure is supported by these walls, and without proper bracing and remediation, catastrophic damage could occur. Four decades and thousands of basements later, BDWS is ready to help you increase your level of stabilization. Increased stability ultimately saves the structural integrity of your property, helping you to sleep better at night.
