Baseboard systems originated in the midwest in the early 1960's. The design is simple and very effective. Hollow baseboards collect water from weep holes tapped in the bottom row of blocks and channel the water to a sump pump or floor drain. This approach to waterproofing your basement can save hundreds of dollars over sub-floor systems. Baseboard systems are used by the Housing Authorities of Minnesota, Wisconsin and Nebraska The first P.V.C. baseboard system was patented by Robert Cotten and is widely recognized for the design that uses a flexible hinged front. Cotten's system is only available through professional waterproofers. New contractors attend a required training program. Even competitors have taken the comprehensive training program.
