Professional, Certified Waterproofers In Michigan

Basement water problems are as old as the structures themselves. Water will leak into a basement through any opening it can, including your walls, floors, and the joints between them. Water can even pass through the concrete itself -- which is one reason why basements are notoriously damp, humid spaces.

Other companies might try to sell you on inferior basement waterproofing solutions. Our products have been developed, patented, and perfected by Basement Systems®, Inc. -- the world's largest network of basement waterproofing contractors.

Whether you live in Ann Arbor, Saginaw, Warren, Sterling Heights, Jackson, Livonia or Midland, our basement experts will show you how we can customize your waterproofing solution to keep the basement dry all the time!

Exterior Excavation

Heavy equipment is brought in to dig out the entire perimeter of the basement. New drain lines are installed, and sometimes a waterproof coating is applied to foundation walls. This waterproofing strategy is expensive and often damages lawn and garden areas. Exterior drains are prone to clogging with silt and roots over time.

Interior Subfloor Drain

This drain line is installed underneath the basement floor, just inside the foundation walls. The hidden drainage system brings water to a sump pit, where a sump pump automatically pumps it outside. Also known as a French Drain, this system is not prone to clogging; it’s reliable and easy to service.

Interior Baseboard System

A hollow plastic baseboard is installed along the base of basement walls to form a drainage channel that directs water to a sump pump system. A baseboard-type drainage system is sometimes recommended when the basement slab is too thin to accommodate a French Drain.

Negative-side Sealant

This waterproofing technique involves "painting" basement walls and floors with a waterproof, cement-based coating that's supposed to seal out moisture. Even when applied correctly, this thin membrane usually fails in response to prolonged hydrostatic pressure from outside the foundation.

    Johnny J. S. of Detroit, MI

    Customer Testimonial

              It was my perception that the initial meeting met every component of professionalism. Ron, the inspector, was genuine; he portrayed objectivity, professionalism and good people skills. Scheduling was in complete harmony with my domestic agenda. The installers were greatly focused and task-oriented and went about doing their work, seemingly, with an accent of efficiency. Afterward, they cleaned their work areas impressively well. They appeared to be FSM's highest performers. Most importantly, the leaking water along a portion of the floor of the basement eastern wall appears to have been diverted elsewhere. After last night intense rainfall, I did not witness any wet spots or running water inside the basement and, or near the repaired area. Despite an oversight to include a "paid in full" receipt on the final communique, I have rated the company's overall performance as an A-. The oversight has been corrected. Still, the installers performed superbly well and I am satisfied with the completed undertaking. (View the Original Testimonial)
