One of the major basement systems companies wants to jack hammer the perimeter of the area of the basement that we are finishing. Set the rigid foam against the wall and then add concrete back so that the rigid foam goes below the concrete floor. No sump pump. Anybody do this sort of set up in their basement? Basically, the h2o drains below the house without a french drain leading to a sump pump. The man said it is not needed. The basement is pretty dry so I don't see that we will have huge amounts of water pouring down... does this sound like a good idea?
