    Customer Testimonial

              My wife and I had struggled with wet basement issues for multiple years, and last fall finally decided that enough was enough, and contracted with your firm to get the situation squared away. Your guys did a great job, our basement’s been dry, and we were very happy with the overall result – with a singular exception: the position of the water discharge on the north side of the house, which left the water with nowhere to go - essentially turning that side of our yard into a swamp. It has been my pleasure to work with Dale on this issue, and it’s resolution. He and I had a couple of productive, diplomatic, and customer-service oriented conversations on the topic, and Dale very quickly recognized what he needed to be done – not only to remediate the physical problem in my yard – but also to maintain a positive client relationship. Dale did a fantastic job, and has left me a thoroughly satisfied customer – one who will certainly preach the gospel of Badger Basement Systems within my circle of influence. I wish to offer my thanks Jim; to your entire organization for a job very well-done; but especially to Dale – who took care of the problem, and also took care of the customer. Please recognize as an employer, just how lucky you are to have a man like that on your payroll. Thank you Dale!!

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.
