Water has been seeping through these basement walls and causing moisture damage to the insulation on the floors above. The homeowner wanted to replace their insulation and waterproof the basement.
We installed the WaterGuard system with SuperSump Plus and Ultra Sump Battery Back-up sump pump system and replaced the insulation on the floors above.
This Saluda basement had major water issues in the basement. The WaterGuard Drainage System and SuperSump were installed to help keep this basement dry ALL the time.
This homeowner had concerns about water entering their basement, especially during the heavy rainfall the Virginia Peninsula and Richmond have been seeing. The solution was to install a complete basement waterproofing system. CleanSpace was installed covering the below-grade portion of the basement walls to direct any water infiltration into the drainage system. The WaterGuard Drainage System was installed to collect any water entering the basement that was directed downward by the CleanSpace and direct it toward the SuperSump System. The SuperSump System is a 1/3 hp sump pump, that pumps water out of the basement and away from the home. In these photos, you can see the bottom of the stairs in the basement. The before photo shows staining on the walls and a collection of silt and sediment where the floor meets the wall. these are clear signs that water is entering the basement. Since the basement is used for storage and laundry this poses a threat to the homeowner's valuables and washer and dryer. In the after photo, you can see the dark line of cement around the perimeter of the basement where the WaterGuard system has been installed and the bright white walls that are lined with CleanSpace.
As part of waterproofing their basement, this Richmond Homeowner needed to replace their old sump pump. We installed a SuperSump plus, which features an airtight lid with floor drain for leaks from above the system, a 1/3hp pump that sits on a clean pump stand to keep it out of any sediment that collects in the bottom of the basin, and a Water Watch alarm.
The homeowner also opted to add an UltraSump Battery Backup to the system to ensure that in the event of a power outage, circuit failure, or pump failure, they would have a backup system to protect their basement.
Moisture finds its way through porous foundation walls. Common signs are chipping, peeling or bubbling paint, water staining, and efflorescence (a white powdery residue).
As part of the waterproofing system installed in this basement, CleanSpace is installed on the walls to direct moisture that moves through the poured concrete walls down into the french drain system we installed called WaterGuard.

Basement leaks can often be mysterious and seem unexplainable. How could your basement be leaking without heavy rains or standing water? Unfortunately, this is because there's actually a variety of ways for water to seep into your basement.
After your foundation is laid, the area around your foundation will be refilled with soil. However, this soil is generally far less dense than the undisturbed soil around it. This allows water to collect in the soil around your foundation. As this water builds up it will begin to pressure your foundation walls and, eventually, cause cracks.
When water soaks the loose soil around your foundations the soil will start to expand. As the soil expands it will push outwards, straight into your foundation walls. This steadily increasing pressure will start to cause cracks and then water will flow into your home through these cracks.
