Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Exterior Trench Drain Driveway Solution

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014 by Cory Marchildon


   This beautiful home had an awesome Driveway that sloped down into a garage. Curb appeal is great but the problem was every time it rained the water would go right past the old steel grate drain and right onto the garage floor. The customer also had a sump pump in their garage that could just not keep up with the water during heavy rainfalls. 


   First goal was to upgrade the sump pump system to a system that could manage water in the most extreme situations. From there we wanted to increase the volume of storm water that accumulates at the base of the drive with a proper trench drainage system. Although the grates are narrower we can collect more water by using a specific installation technique.
