Sealing Off Moisture from a Colonial Beach, VA Basement

This homeowner in Colonial Beach called us out to discuss some moisture issues they were having in their basement. We sent out a Home Performance Advisor to evaluate their situation and to come up with a plan to help protect this basement from further moisture infiltration. Firstly, we need to clear the perimeter around the basement walls. All the furniture and items were temporarily moved out of the way while our installers worked. A trench was created around the perimeter of the basement, which would house our WaterGuard XL drainage system. A durable 20-mil CleanSpace vapor barrier was mechanically fastened to the porous basement walls, which would help to protect the basement from moisture influence while guiding any water collected to the drainage trench. The WaterGuard XL drainage system is then installed in the trench, which will guide any collected water to the sump pump system. Drainage rocks fill the trench around the drainage system to help filter water and to keep the WaterGuard XL from clogging with mud or dirt. A hole is created to fit our SuperSump Plus system in connection with the WaterGuard drainage system. This efficient sump pump basin contains a cast iron 1/3 horsepower Zoller pump, a WaterWatch alarm system, a CleanPump sump pump stand, and an airtight lid. Any water directed to this sump system is then drained out of the home via hose line and LawnScape to a predetermined area on the property away from the foundation. With these solutions in place, the homeowner can enjoy a dry and comfortable basement, even during heavy rainstorms.
