The Before - Pt 1
Here is a photo of what this basement looked like before Comfenergy was called.
The Before - Pt. 2
Antoher before photo.
The Before - Pt. 3
Yet another before photo! Look for water damage in any discoloration.
The Before - Pt. 4
You can be sure that every neglected nook and cranny of your basement will be waterproofed by the time we are done with it!
The Last Before Photo!
This is the last before photo, you can see here that tried some of the DIY solutions that might mitigate the issues of a damp basement with that dehumidifier front and center.
Creating a Mess to Fix a Mess
Before we can install our waterproofing products, we first must make space for them! We start by jack-hammering around the perimeter of the problematic sections of your basement in order to make room for the drainage system tracking that will lay flat below the surface of your floor.
CleanSpace and WaterGuard
We are looking at two important products here, CleanSpace lining and WaterGuard drainage system. The CleanSpace lining is the fresh white sheets on the walls and this is the actual waterproofing agent. The 7-ply patent protected technology is what acts as the literal water vapor barrier. This stops any water from seeping through and pushes it down to the drainage system we installed in the floor. The grey plastic in the floor the the WaterGuard drainage system which collects any water coming through your foundation and directs it the sump pump which we will also install.
More CleanSpace and WaterGuard!
Here is another shot of the products we were just looking at!
Every Nook and Cranny....
Though just another photo of CleanSpace, not the careful treatment to the window which can be a great point of leakage in a basement!
Time For the Final Product!
Now it is time for the sump pump! We have a variety of sump pumps, from the most basic (but high efficient) models to ones with all the bells and whistles. This is the machine that will actually get any collected water up and away from your house. Our sump pumps have the power and installation methods that will push the water far enough away from your house that it will not be coming directly back into your home.
More Sump Pump
Here you can see ow the water actually gets from the sump pump, to the outdoors!!
Goodbye basement water!!
This is how the sump pump in this home connects to the outdoor drainage system.
Sand to Seal
Now that everything is installed, it is time to seal up and clean up! We will use a cement to fill any holes and hold everything in place.
We seal everything from the windows the sump pump.
This is what the floor will look like up close after being all sealed up. If you were to have a finished basement then it will not look quite like this. Everything will be returned to the way it was found and you will not see any of the basement waterproofing system.
The Finishing Touch
The finishing touch is leaving spaces cleaner than we found them. Unfortunately we do not have an image of this project upon completion, but as you can see from the broom here, some major clean up is up next!
The Neglected Spots
Here is a shot of the original neglected nook we looked at in the beginning that is now all waterproofed!!
Out and Away
This is what a drainage system may look like leaving your home, typically ours will be mostly underground and will deposit further away from the home.
Keeping it Clean
At Comfenergy we have documentation of everything we do from a first phone call, to certificates of completion and we are as transparent as possible along the way, here is just another little thing we do to make sure everyone is on the same page!
