Do you need a sump pump?
Many homeowners might not think they need a sump pump, but even if you’ve never experienced flooding in your basement, a sump pump is a proactive investment toward preventing water damage from water intrusion when combined with an interior drainage system. Often, basements and crawl spaces are prone to chronic moisture problems. One of our Brentwood drainage system and waterproofing specialists can assess your home’s risk level and explain the benefits of a sump pump. An interior drain system with a sump pump or gravity drain is wise in every home, especially in these cases:
- Your area is prone to heavy rains or snowfall
- Your home is at the bottom of a hill
- Your basement is finished
- Your basement stores valuable items
- Your basement has flooded in the past
Here at USS, we almost always recommend interior drain and sump pump installation and repair for Brentwood homes as part of a thorough waterproofing strategy, and we can suggest the best product for your needs. A quality sump pump and interior drain system can act as backup if other waterproofing components fail.
