A clogged shower drain is the bane of every homeowner’s existence. Shower bases that are stubbornly slow to drain can leave you paddling around in a couple of inches of water every time you take a shower. Drains can also become completely blocked, rendering the shower unusable.

Basement waterproofing is the only solution to keep water from getting into your basement and causing major structural damage, as well as mold, decay, and other moisture-related issues. Interior and/or exterior foundation waterproofing is required when ground water builds up in the soil raising the water table. This process causes hydrostatic pressure to occur and push against the walls and floors of your basement. Unless your basement is properly waterproofed, the water will force its way in through cracks in the foundation walls, openings caused by expansion and contraction of the footing-foundation wall joint and up through the floor cracks.
As foundation waterproofing is necessary anytime a structure is built below or at ground level, which is the vast majority of cases, the industry has developed various foundation waterproofing techniques. Although interior waterproofing can also help solve part of the problems, it cannot prevent by itself severe damage. Exterior foundation waterproofing remains the only method recognized by the International Building Code as adequate for the prevention of wicking and molding of building materials.
Finishing a basement comes with many satisfactions. In order to enjoy your results for a lifetime, you need to make sure there are no water issues that can potentially cause damage to your property and ruin your investment. There are many elements to be checked, often concealed to the untrained eye, before starting on your basement finishing project. Here are a few reasons why you should call a plumber if you plan to have your basement finished:
- You may need interior waterproofing prior to finishing a basement. As enthusiastic as you may be with your new project, don’t allow your excitement to cloud your judgment and make sure you waterproof your basement on the inside. Interior waterproofing collects water under the concrete foundation and directs it to the local drainage system. Underground water around the foundation footers and underneath the basement floor is drained and channeled with a PVC pipe, French drain, or other system to your pump system, which will pump the water out of the basement. The exact steps you need to take are to be suggested by a professional plumber.
