To keep the water out, this homeowner had Basement System's SunHouse window wells installed. The SunHouse lids will keep debris from piling up inside the well and allow the outside light to shine in.
We had been in talks with the owners of this University property since last December. After months of passing the proposal up the chain, the job was finally approved. The main concern was the regular leaking of the basement walls. For any basement waterproofing, one of the key aspects is a sump pump system. The hole shown in the before photo is an open sump that was installed in the home previously. It wasn’t able to keep up with the heavy water load that was regularly flowing into the home. After talks with one of the system design specialist, the owners decided on one of our most reliable sump pump systems, the SuperSump.
Seen in the after photo, the SuperSump is capable of discharging over 2,000 gallons of water per hour and has an optional backup pump that will keep water out even if the power goes out. Also, unlike the previous sump, the SuperSump comes equipped with a lid to keep out any type of debris that could clog the system. With the SuperSump and several other waterproofing products included in this installation, this basement won’t have to worry about leaking walls again.
WaterGuard is a full perimeter drainage system that captures water and transports it to the sump pump before it can gain access to any of your personal items. Once the topcoat of concrete drys, the basement floor will look as good as new!
