What causes basement flooding & how to prevent it
If you have basement flooding, it can happen over and over if not addressed. Fortunately, there's a lot you can do to prevent a flooded basement. That's where Thrasher Foundation Repair comes in. As a basement waterproofing company, we offer basement flood prevention and waterproofing solutions that ensure your basement stays dry.
Few things can cause more damage to a home than a full-scale basement flood, especially if you have a finished basement. Plumbing failures and severe weather are the most common causes of flooding. That is why it is better to be vigilant than deal with the consequences later.

Common Basement Flooding Problems
Basements can flood from a number of areas, including wall cracks, floor cracks, leaking or burst pipes, leaking windows, hatchway doors, sump pump failure, and water heater failure.The average cost of cleaning up a flooded basement can reach the thousands. And much of that expense comes from remediating the hazardous health effects of mold and standing water, damage to appliances and electronics, and replacing structural elements of your home like drywall and framing.
Even a small leak can become a basement flood that leads to extensive damage to finishing materials and stored items.
Our trained experts specialize in wet basement repairs of all kinds and can provide a great solution for you to prevent future flooding.
How Thrasher Prevents Basement Flooding
Flooding by Stairways & Doors
Hatchway entrances leak from three critical points: underneath metal hatchway doors, where the hatchway and foundation meet, and through cracks in the concrete.
No matter how water is flooding into your home from the hatchway doors, our TrenchDrain™ Hatchway Door System is a great way to keep it out of your basement space. The TrenchDrain™ is designed with a half-round pipe section, with a grated top fitting. When installed, it's flush with the rest of your concrete floor for a clean, professional job.
The TrenchDrain™ is meant to be used as part of an existing perimeter drain system. It spans the staircase, collecting water that spills down and directs it to your drain and sump pump system. This system can span the entrance of the hatchway, or can be extended inside the hatchway itself.
Flooding From Plumbing Failures
When your home experiences a plumbing failure, it can damage carpet, drywall, appliances, and stored personal possessions. The mold that follows a flood can create allergens that can lead to serious long-term health effects.
Unfortunately, it's not possible to prevent all pipes, toilets, sinks, tubs, faucets, and other pieces of home plumbing from ever experiencing a leak. That's why we install sump pumps that are equipped with an airtight floor drain that lets water from a plumbing leak down the drain, but keeps moisture from coming up into your basement.
