Basements are prone to flooding year-round, but the risk escalates during winter months. Freezing is a common problem for homeowners in West Virginia, but it shouldn’t undermine the integrity of your basement. 

Basement Authority’s FreezeGuard™ is a winter-proof attachment, crafted to guarantee your basement stays dry and safe, serving as an essential element in our leading basement waterproofing services

This page is intended to provide thorough information about FreezeGuard™, its benefits, and why it’s crucial during the cold winter season. 

What is FreezeGuard™? 

FreezeGuard™ by Basement Authority is an innovative attachment that connects to your sump pump system’s external discharge line just outside your home. It’s a great way to waterproof your basement in preparation for winter

It provides an alternative route for water, preventing backflow and basement flooding and reducing the chances of sump pump failure. If the discharge line is blocked or frozen, water is diverted to the FreezeGuard™ and released safely. 

This state-of-the-art addition is central to Basement Authority’s comprehensive home solution, incorporating basement water control systems. A basement waterproofing system is most effective when it includes FreezeGuard™, aiding in preventing frozen pipes from causing water damage. 

Signs You Need the FreezeGuard™ Attachment 

This unique attachment is crucial, especially if you experience the following problems in your basement during winter: 

Any presence of moisture in the basement can end up being harmful and requires immediate action. Water endangers both your home’s structural stability and your family’s health

If you observe any of these signs, get in touch with Basement Authority right away. Working with experts will prevent these types of problems in the future. 

Is an Anti-Freeze Attachment Necessary? 

Having a device like FreezeGuard™ is vital for homes that have experienced frozen discharge lines in the past. Without such a device, recurrent basement flooding could plague your home every winter. 

Act before significant damage occurs. Think about fortifying your home with FreezeGuard™. Winter already has its challenges—no need to add another to the list. 

What Are the Benefits of FreezeGuard™? 

FreezeGuard™ provides many advantages. Not only does it simply make your pipes work better, but it can also provide you with the following:

  • Foundation Security: FreezeGuard™ safeguards the foundation by preventing basement floods from frozen discharge lines, reducing the amount of water in your basement
  • Peace of Mind: FreezeGuard™ eliminates worries, allowing homeowners to relax knowing their basements are protected against water overflow.
