Basement Waterproofing

A common challenge that homeowners face is water in their basements. Not only is a wet basement a pain to clean up, but it can also ruin other parts of the room. It can damage the walls in your basement and leave stains on your floors, or even cause mold to grow if left untreated.

At Trotter Company, our team of experienced waterproofers can assess your basement’s situation and provide the best possible recommendations to keep it dry, permanently.

How We’re Different

Before the new Trotter System, all sub-floor basement systems flooded the soil under the basement floor with rain water, even ours. These “drain field” drains are perforated to allow water to flow in. It’s simply how they work: water pours out of the weep holes in the wall and soaks the soil under the floor. It then builds up and flows into the perforated drain. The problem is this water soaking in weakens the soil. If your home is built on questionable soil or fill dirt, settlement issues will probably develop. The other problem is when the trenches are dug to install the drains beside foundation, the termite chemicals are removed with the soil and will likely result in the loss of your termite protection. The Trotter System does not disturb the termite barrier.

Some companies intentionally leave their system open at the wall to catch seepage trickling down the wall and usually do nothing to prevent evaporation and seepage from the masonry basement walls. The unfortunate side effect is constant moisture evaporation from under the floor back into the basement. If you finish a basement with this system in place, you will almost certainly have high humidity levels behind the finished walls, which can lead to mold. Only the Trotter System warrants no water or dampness from our basement system – a full 8 feet high on masonry walls!

If you’ve got any of the following in your home, you probably have a wet basement problem. It’s best to address this ASAP since water in your basement can lead to other major problems.

Water In Basement

Even small leaks can cause flooding in the future if left unfixed.

Ponding Water

Water ponding towards the house or running against it.

The Wall Vapor Barrier controls seepage and vapor movement from the exterior through masonry walls until you are ready to finish your basement.

Before you finish, we suggest you use our pre-finishing wall system to guarantee moisture and condensation-free finished walls.

Note: basement walls must be properly insulated and have dual vapor barriers to prevent condensation behind finished walls.
