3 Waterproofing Options for Finished and Unfinished Basements

Friday, October 12th, 2018 by Kerrigan Chapman

Most reasonable homeowners aim to keep their basements dry and comfortable, regardless of whether they're finished or unfinished. After all, who wants a wet basement? If you're exploring waterproofing options for your basement but aren't sure whether or not the one you have in mind will work for your basement, rest assured that these options, unlike excess water and humidity, have a place in your basement.



A reliable basement drainage system is a popular first step in any waterproofing system, and WaterGuard delivers. WaterGuard is a French drain system, meaning it's installed under the floor slab for a low-profile appearance. Although it can be difficult to spot once it's installed, WaterGuard provides powerful, clog-free drainage to remove water from your home, sending it straight to your sump system or exterior drain.

EverLast Windows


If you're struggling with water issues like countless other homeowners, you may have noticed water pouring in through your basement windows during floods or heavy rains. With EverLast windows on your side, you can rest easy knowing water has one less place to enter your home. EverLast windows are double-paned for maximum energy efficiency, and their high-quality vinyl construction makes them resistant to rot and rust while forming a watertight seal to keep your basement as clean, dry, and presentable as possible.

SaniDry Sedona


Even the most watertight basements may not be immune to seasonal humidity or excess moisture in the air, especially for Midwestern homeowners. The SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier system removes up to 100 pints of water per day from the air to protect your home from muggy air and microbial irritants like mold and mildew, which flourish when your basement's humidity levels exceed fifty percent.
