Basement Waterproofing in Richmond, VA with WaterGuard, SuperSump, and CleanSpace

Basement Waterproofing in Richmond, VA with WaterGuard, SuperSump, and CleanSpace Basement Waterproofing in Richmond, VA with WaterGuard, SuperSump, and CleanSpace

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.

Expert Spray Foam, Attic & Home Insulation Services

The Drying Co. is an authorized dealer of the nationally renowned Dr. Energy Saver network. The Dr. Energy Saver network is comprised of the best energy-conservation contractors across the country. We are not just another contractor company, we specialize in improving your home's current energy efficiency issues. You'll receive the maximum energy and cost-saving results with the least amount of hassle.

Spray foam insulation is the best home insulation product available today. It is superior to every other home insulation alternative for several reasons. 1) Spray foam insulation will never shift or peel away from the surface it's sprayed on due to its adhesive properties. 2) Spray foam insulation is waterproof, moisture and mold proof. 3) Spray foam insulation can be applied to any surface and when it is sprayed it creates an airtight seal, so it also provides air sealing abilities to prevent leaks and to keep your home comfortable regardless of the temperature outside. 4) Lastly, Spray foam insulation provides higher levels of insulation compared to other products such as outdated fiberglass insulation. That means less spray foam provides greater insulation value than other insulation methods. Contact us today to learn more about our spray foam services and spray foam cost in your area!

Attic insulation is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve the comfort of your home and also to lower your energy bills. Attic insulation works in two major ways by creating a heat barrier at the top of your home. The first way it benefits your home is in the colder months when you are heating your home. We all know that hot air rises so if you don't have enough attic insulation the hot air you are using to heat your home can escape through your attic. This will cause your energy bills to increase and your home to be uncomfortable. The second way attic insulation can help is in the warm months when the hot afternoon sun is beating down on the roof of your home. Additional attic insulation will act as a barrier and will stop the hot sun from heating your home when you want to stay cool and comfortable. Proper attic insulation will keep you and your family comfortable year round and will save you money. Call or click today to learn more about attic insulation cost or to schedule your FREE estimate!

Job Stories From Richmond, VA
This Richmond Home won't have a wet basement again.

This Richmond, VA basement had an issue with water entering through the basement walls and chose to install a complete basement waterproofing system. A complete Basement Waterproofing System includes a CleanSpace vapor barrier on the walls, The WaterGuard Drainage System, and a Sump Pump. The three work together to direct any water and vapor infiltration into the sump pump and out of the basement, away from the home’s foundation. A sump pump has the primary job of moving water directed to it from the WaterGuard system out and away from the home. The TripleSafe® Sump Pump is a great option for basement waterproofing due to its unique three pump system.

The TripleSafe® is an ideal option, especially for homeowners who want to make sure that they are protected against any amount of water infiltration, or for spaces that flood easily. The TripleSafe® is the most reliable sump pump system for keeping your basement dry. The TripleSafe® contains three pumps, the first pump, a 1/3 HP Zoeller Pump is the primary pump and does the majority of the pumping. The second pump, a ½ HP Zoeller, is a larger sump pump and takes over if pump one fails for any reason, or if pump one cannot keep up with a heavy flow of water. Together, pumps one and two can remove up to 6,200 gallons of water per hour from your basement. In the instance that the power or a circuit fails, the battery back-up takes over called the “UltraSump ® Battery Back-up Pumping System” This system automatically charges when the first two pumps are running and on a full charge can operate for 6 hours via battery power to remove water. In addition, the Triple Safe features a WaterWatch® Alarm that goes off in the instance that water rises above the operating range of both sump pumps. This alarm tells you there is a problem before damage occurs. With the TripleSafe® Sump Pump in their basement, these Richmond, VA homeowners have the peace of mind that their basement is protected from heavy rainfalls and flooding.

Basement Waterproofing in Richmond, VA with WaterGuard, CleanSpace, and TripleSafe

A homeowner in the Fulton Hill area of Richmond, VA contacted us with concerns about water coming into their basement. This homeowner wanted to make sure that any water that was entering their basement was evacuated. They wanted “peace of mind” that their basement wouldn’t flood during a storm and to eliminate the musty odor that came from the incoming water.

Our Home Performance Advisor did a thorough inspection of the basement and proposed a complete waterproofing system. WaterGuard Drainage was installed around the perimeter of the basement. This system will catch any water and feed it to the Sump Pump. A Trench Drain was installed as part of the WaterGuard system that catches any water that might enter through the exterior access to the basement. A CleanSpace Vapor Barrier was installed to line the walls, this helps direct any moisture or water that might come through the walls down into the WaterGuard System. A TripleSafe Sump Pump was installed to pump any water out of the basement and away from the home’s foundation. With a complete Basement Waterproofing System, this homeowner now has peace of mind that their basement is ready for whatever storm or rainfall comes its way.
