A year and a half ago I had a concrete driveway addition in front of my house to make it wider and more accessible to our family. After the apron, my driveway slopes towards the house, and before adding it, I didn't consider the effect that it would have on drainage around my home. Soon, I noticed my basement was getting increasingly more wet. My problem was mostly the water that was staying in the block as it would be leaking even on dry, sunny days.
I began looking for solutions and found some suggestions from local retailers, and by browsing some forums online. I saw an advertisement for beaver baseboard drainage, and boy am I glad I did. I just wanted to say how happy i am with my beaver baseboard drainage system in my house. I ordered a DIY kit from their website last spring and installed it this summer in the problem area of my basement. It took me a while to get to it because I broke out the the floor and installed a sealed sump pump pit and pump that I had intended to plumb it to, but in the end, this system, along with the sump pump, and some zinsser water-tite, has cured my basement of the little rivers that used to run through it into the floor drains! I would recommend it to anyone with similar problems.
In the coming years, I will likely add a trench drain at the end of the driveway in front of the house running the length of the home to the back yard (my entire property is sloped) to further help alleviate the problems, but this was a very cost effective, quick, and easy solution in comparison.
