Basement Waterproofing - WaterGuard

Tuesday, December 27th, 2022 by Candice Stevens


WaterGuard - Image 1  WaterGuard is a brand of waterproofing products manufactured by the Basement Systems, Inc. company. Keystone Basement Systems specializes in using WaterGuard as one of their most valuable products used to waterproof. For a typical basement, our WaterGuard® system is the ideal choice for waterproofing. This French drain is designed to be installed below the floor slab, resting on top of the foundation footing. This keeps the drainage system out of the "mud zone", where drains can clog. WaterGuard® is installed with minimal invasion of the slab, and all concrete is restored after installation. These products are designed to protect basements and crawl spaces from water damage by sealing and waterproofing the foundation of a home.

One of the key features of WaterGuard products is their ability to drain water away from the foundation of a home. This is achieved through a system of channels and drains that are installed along the perimeter of the basement or crawl space. These channels collect water from the soil and direct it to a sump pump, which then pumps the water out and away from the foundation.

WaterGuard products are made from durable materials such as high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and PVC, which are resistant to rust and corrosion. They are also designed to be easy to install and require minimal maintenance.

In addition to waterproofing the foundation, WaterGuard products can also help to prevent mold and mildew growth in basements and crawl spaces. This is because they help to keep the area dry, which is necessary for mold and mildew to thrive.

Another benefit of using WaterGuard products is that they can help to increase the energy efficiency of a home. This is because a dry basement or crawl space is better insulated and can help to reduce heating and cooling costs.

WaterGuard products have received positive reviews from homeowners and professionals alike. One satisfied customer stated, "We have had no water issues since the WaterGuard system was installed. It has been a great investment for our home." (Source: )

In addition to waterproofing products, WaterGuard also offers a range of other basement and crawl space solutions, including sump pumps, dehumidifiers, and foundation repair products.

WaterGuard products are available through a network of authorized dealers and installers across the United States and Canada. These professionals are trained and certified to install WaterGuard products according to the manufacturer's guidelines.

Overall, WaterGuard is a reliable and effective solution for protecting basements and crawl spaces from water damage. Its durable materials, easy installation, and ability to prevent mold and increase energy efficiency make it a popular choice among homeowners. (Source: )
