Exterior basement waterproofing commonly points to a solution called “French Drains,” which have been used to waterproof basements since the 1800s.

The main distinction is where the drainage system is actually installed. In this case, we install this tube in a deep trench outside of your property, so the water never actually touches your foundation.
