BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage System

Dealing with a wet or flooded basement is overwhelming for homeowners. It’s not only unsafe but also threatens the structural stability of your cherished home. 

At Innovative Basement Authority, we understand—we’re homeowners too. Our state-of-the-art BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage System is ultimate protection against water in your basement. 

For more than 15 years, we’ve been your trusted basement waterproofing company, delivering solutions to permanently put a stop to water-related problems. 

Let us show you the IBA difference.  

What is AquaStop BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage? 

BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage is a cutting-edge waterproofing system designed to sit on top of the footer along the interior perimeter of your basement.  

Any water entering, either from the walls or where the floor and the wall meet, is directed through the system to the sump pump where it is removed.  

By installing it on top of the footer, out of the “mud zone,” the BasementGutter™ requires very little maintenance as it does not clog. A 3/8” wall flange enables water from the walls to enter the system without any obstruction. 

The system, although arguably the most important, is just a component of a comprehensive home waterproofing approach, ensuring a healthy and dry living atmosphere.

  • Place BasementGutter™ in the trench and backfill with stone.  
  • Set a vapor barrier on top.  
  • Connect the drainage channels to the sump pump.  
  • Pour cement to replace the concrete floor. 

Additional solutions may include a wall vapor barrier, dehumidifier, and anti-freeze sump pump discharge line attachment, all installed professionally by Innovative Basement Authority.

An interior basement drain is a water management system installed inside the basement to redirect water leakage away from the foundation to prevent flooding and water damage.

Interior basement drains are essential for preventing water accumulation, mold growth, and structural damage in basements, particularly in areas prone to high rainfall or water table levels.

Not at all, our system is designed for minimal upkeep, supported by our annual service agreements. Reach out to Innovative Basement Authority for more information and to schedule your annual maintenance services.
