How to Keep your Foundation Dry in Existing Structures
In new construction and existing homes alike, foundation flooding is an all-too-common problem. When a basement floods, it ruins the usability of the space, while many of the stored items in the space are damaged by the flood.
If appropriate measures to waterproof the foundation were not taken when the home was originally built, then there’s a good chance that your basement will flood sooner or later.
In the event that this happens, Peak Structural can help you waterproof the foundation. Our installations include patented waterproofing products and written warranties.

Existing Structure Foundation Waterproofing
Once construction is done and the home has been lived in, Peak Structural does not recommend foundation waterproofing from the exterior.
Installing a drainage system on the interior will eliminate the need to dig out the perimeter of the foundation, including steps, sidewalks, patios, gardens, shrubs, etc. Interior foundation waterproofing systems are also much easier to maintain in the event of a clog.
Instead of this, Peak Structural advises homeowners to install an interior waterproofing drainage system, such as our WaterGuard® Basement Drainage System.
This basement drain installs along the interior perimeter of the foundation walls, where it collects water and sends it to a sump pump system.
WaterGuard® includes a wall flange that extends up slightly from the drainage system. This flange provides a built-in wall drain to collect water from the walls, while still being covered over with concrete. This means that your entire foundation perimeter is protected, while the drain itself is nearly invisible in your basement.
WaterGuard® can be installed in one, sometimes two days. Basement Systems® dealers have been installing WaterGuard® in basements since 1994, and today millions and millions of feet have been installed all across the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
