This home has had issues with water entering their basement.
The bottom of the wall shows staining where water has been coming into the basement.
More staining can be seen along the perimeter of the room and the exterior access to the basement can be seen. Exterior accesses can be a major source of water infiltration if water seeps under and around doors.
A trench has been dug around the perimeter of the basement and rock and WaterGuard Drainage System has been installed. Clean Space is run along the walls to direct water downward and into the WaterGuard System.
The WaterGuard system is run along the perimeter of the basement, and cut to fit corner to ensure that water is directed into the system and to the TripleSafe Sump Pump to be removed from the home.
The CleanSpace Vapor Barrier directs any water or vapor that comes through the wall down into the WaterGuard System and keeps it from entering the finished space.
The WaterGuard System is designed to solve basement waterproofing concerns without being clogged by soil and sediment
WaterGuard is engineered not to sit in the dirt so clogging due to silt and dirt isn't a problem.
Concrete is laid over the WaterGuard System to hide it from view while it drains away any water infiltration.
WaterGuard, along with a sump pump and dehumidifier will help keep your basement dry and clean so you can utilize the space for storage, recreation, or convert it into a living space.
This Doswell, VA homeowner reached out to us with concerns about water coming into their finished basement. Tyler met with the homeowner and did a thorough inspection of thier home. The intruding water had left staining on the lower section of the walls and a musty odor.
To protect this basement, we recommended a Complete Basement Waterproofing System. CleanSpace Vapor Barrier was installed on the walls and fastened. All of the fasteners and seams were sealed using a heavy duty 4" vinyl tape. A trench was dug around the perimeter of the basement and the WaterGuard drainage system was installed along with rock. A TripleSafe Sump Pump was installed, this sump pump is unique because it utilizes a three pump system. The WaterGuard System directs water into the TripleSafe, which pumps it out and away from the home's foundation. Finally, a SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier is installed to control relative humidity. This system gives the homeowners peace of mind that thier basement is protected from water infiltration and mold and mildew.
