We will work with you to get to the bottom of your drainage problem, and the best, most economical way to solve it. Poor drainage symptoms are usually obvious. They may include water entry following rain, white powdery substance (efflorescence) on cinder blocks, silt at the cove (where the basement wall and floor meet), discolored floor molding and/or a strong musty smell. Sump pumps only pump out water that already exists in the basement. The foundation and wall may actually weaken from water traveling through them to get to the pump. Water should be prevented from entering the foundation in the first place. Sump pumps also depend on electricity to operate, but they are often most needed during thunderstorms, when electric power is at risk. Most water in basements comes from surface water, and should be corrected with regrading. According to the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission, only one in 300 drainage problems result from ground water and may need to be corrected with a sump pump. NDLC works at solving the problems, not disguising them. There is over a 90% chance that correcting roof runoff and grading will solve your problem. The experts at Newborg Drainage are experienced in redirecting water away from the problem area so that it will not end up in your basement.
