Stop Water From Flooding Through Leaking Cracks in Your Floor

One of the more perplexing issues that homeowners face when it comes to basement water problems is how to stop water from rising up through their basement floor.

Fortunately, basement floor cracks can be easily and effectively repaired as part of a proper perimeter drainage system. If you’d like a free quote for repairing basement floor cracks, contact us by phone or e-mail today!

Steps to Waterproof A Leaky Floor Crack

When it’s necessary to fix a leaking basement floor crack, we at Klein Home Solutions usually suggest installing a lateral line drainage system to collect water from the crack and redirect it to your sump pump system. When installing this kind of floor drainage system, we follow these three steps:

  1. Install A Perimeter Drainage System: We strongly recommend that your first step is to install a perimeter drainage system. This will often intercept the water before it reaches your floor crack, ensuring a dry basement and eliminating the problem.
  2. Install a Drainage Channel, Starting at the Crack: When direct drainage is necessary, we can remove a section of the basement floor and run a line of PVC underneath. This PVC line would lead to your sump pump. When pitched properly, any water entering the drain will be directed naturally to the sump pump.
  3. Re-cement the Floor: After the drain has been installed, your waterproofer will back fill with stone and place fresh concrete over the area for a clean, professional look. Allow three days for this concrete to cure properly before walking on it or reapplying weight to the surface.

Are Lateral Drains Always Needed?

In most cases, a lateral drain will not be recommended for waterproofing your basement cracks in the floor. Most water that collects under the floor will be taken care of by the sump pump or perimeter drainage system before the water can push up through the floor cracks.

In the case of serious flooding through cracks, however, creating a lateral line to your drainage system is an easy, cost-effective way to help keep your basement dry.

We waterproof basements in Pennsylvania and New York, including Erie, Warren, Chautauqua, Crawford, Ashtabula, Ashtabula, Fredonia, North East, Edinboro, Titusville, Harborcreek, Waterford and many areas nearby.
