Basement Waterproofing - Wet Stairway in North Windham, CT
To prevent water from leaking down stairs and into the basement, our team installed the TrenchDrain system. A trench drain is a linear channel with a U-shaped profile that’s covered by a drainage grate. Used to dispose of unwanted water a trench drain is installed flush with the basement floor at the foot of a the exterior stairway that provides access to the basement from a leaky bulkhead or hatchway door. It is typically connected to either a drainage channel or directly to a sump pump to remove the water that collects at the base of the exterior stairway.
