BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage System
For homeowners, facing the challenges of a damp, wet basement can be a stressful ordeal. Living in such conditions isn’t just unsafe; it can also jeopardize the structural integrity of the home you’ve worked hard to maintain.
At Foundation Systems of Michigan, we understand because we’re homeowners too. Our reliable BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage System is the best line of defense to keep your basement dry.
As your trusted ally in basement waterproofing across Michigan, we provide solutions designed to stop water-related damages for good.
Our commitment is to provide peace of mind and comfort to every homeowner we serve, ensuring your living space remains dry and healthy.
What is AquaStop BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage?
BasementGutter™ Interior Drainage is a cutting-edge system installed along the interior perimeter of your basement. As water enters, either from the walls or seeps through wall-floor joints, it’s directed to your sump pump, ensuring swift removal.
Our system is placed on top of the footing, avoiding the “mud zone” to maintain a clear, obstruction-free design. A 3/8” wall flange allows any water from the walls to flow seamlessly into the BasementGutter™ system.
While the BasementGutter™ system does much of the heavy lifting, it’s part of a whole-home waterproofing strategy, to ensure a dry and healthy living environment.
Signs You Need Interior Drainage
If you notice any of these red flags, it’s time to consider an interior drainage system:
- Presence of water in the basement
- Damp basement walls
- Leaking around basement windows
- Elevated humidity levels in the basement
- White, powdery efflorescence on concrete surfaces
- Persistent musty odors
Don’t let small issues grow into more extensive damage. At the first sign of trouble contact a professional basement waterproofing service like Foundation Systems of Michigan. Early intervention can stop extensive damage and high repair costs.
Is Interior Drainage Necessary?

DIY remedies or makeshift solutions are not recommended as they only offer a temporary fix and can be financially draining. Relying on proven services like those offered by Foundation Systems of Michigan is the only way to guarantee a dry basement.
