Sump pump installation is one of the most common and effective ways to waterproof your basement. Used either as a stand-alone option or as part of a comprehensive interior French drain system, sump pumps are typically installed at the basement’s lowest point in order to encourage water that has entered your basement to flow toward the sump pit. After the water level reaches a point high enough to activate the sump pump, the water is pushed from the pit and out of the house through a pipe that connects to the exterior. Proper grading then helps guide the water away from your property. Sump pump installs are a straightforward solution for helping keep your basement dry.
The concept behind a sump pump is simple, but actual sump pump installation is not. Don’t waste your time trying to find an amateur that will do the job on the cheap—you’ll just wind up paying more at a later time to fix the shoddy work.

Battery Backup Sump Pumps
Sump pumps tend to be needed most during and after major storms. Unfortunately, it is during these same times that your electricity is likely to be knocked out of service by high winds and other meteorological forces. That’s why it is a good idea to equip your home or business with a battery-operated back up sump pump. The team at Concrete Raising of Upstate New York is available to configure your battery backup sump pump to be prepared to take over if your regular unit is overloaded, malfunctioning, or cut off from power. A backup sump pump is a wise precaution if you want to be extra sure that you always have reliable protection from basement flooding.
Remember, a wet basement isn’t just an isolated problem. It creates other issues, such as mold growth, structural weakening, and more. Because of the potentially serious effects of water damage, hesitating to fix the matter is not wise.
