Inground gutters

DanielJC | Posted in GBA Pro Help on

A few years back I came across an article in Finehomebuiling about inground gutters. Has anyone tried this solution to wet basements? Does it work?

    Fixing a wet basement usually requires a multi-pronged approach. Here is a link to an article that discusses what's needed: Fixing a Wet Basement.

    Installing in-ground gutters or an underground roof is often part of the basket of strategies used to fix a wet basement. GBA has lots of articles on the topic; here is a selection:
