3 Pros Basement Systems Case Studies: Basement Waterproofing

Tuesday, November 26th, 2019 by Ashley Walther

Challenge

Homeowners in Middleburg, VA had water coming into their basement when it rained. They had a sump pump but it only worked some of the time. Wet basements can cause all sorts of problems. Excessive moisture can lead to mold, mildew, or other biological growth that may cause several health issues. It can also lead to rot and structural damage in your home. 

Solution

Our pros came out to make this basement healthier, more comfortable, and dry ALL THE TIME! We installed a new TripleSafe pump system and an UltraSump battery back-up pumping system. IceGuard was installed to prevent floods from clogged or frozen discharge lines and then FloodRing to contain any future tank leakage. Next, we installed WaterGuard XL, a sub-floor drainage system so that any water coming in through the walls could travel easily to the sump pumps. Then TrenchLock was installed, designed to block unwanted ground air and gasses from getting into the basement and ultimately the house. We extended the exterior discharge line and added a LawnScape outlet at the end of the buried line to blend in with the lawn and deter leaves, animals, and debris from getting into it. Finally, we installed the CleanSpace Wall System to create a moisture and vapor barrier and forces any water seepage to flow into the WaterGuard drainage system and then to the sump pump. 

These wonderful homeowners now have a basement that is dry all of the time and no longer have to worry about the mountain of problems that can occur with the presence of moisture.
