These Holt homeowners were having some issues with their basement. They had some cracks that were starting to separate and water coming into the area in several places. We had solutions for both problems to keep the basement dry and safe. We started with the CarbonArmor to stabilize the walls and keep the wall from moving any further. We then installed the DoubleSafe Sump Pump System which receives water from the drain system and expels it out of the home to keep the area free of water. Lastly, we installed the WaterGuard Drain System which will collect water that seeps into the basement and send it to the sump pump. This drain system is installed under the floor and the concrete is restored so there is no unsightly drain. All of these products install quickly and won't interfere with future basement finishing!
Griffin and his family were having some water issues in the basement of their home. The family was no stranger to water issues as they had water intrusions in previous homes so they really wanted a permenant solution this time around since the basement was finished. We had the perfect solution for them by installing the WaterGuard and the TripleSafe Sump Pump. The WaterGuard is a French drain system that is installed under the floor but atop the foundation to avoid the mud zone where the drain could clog. The drain collects the water that seeps into the basement through the walls and sends it to the sump pump. The basement did not have a sump pump in it so we installed the TripleSafe which provides three levels of protection to the basement and keeps it dry even with a pump malfunction or poweroutage!
Vicki called with concerns about her damp crawl space. Especially when it rains, a damp crawl space is a breeding ground for mold, pests, and allergens. Our team came out and installed the CrawlSpace encapsulation system. Not only does this system create an energy-efficient crawl space, but it also gives your crawl space a clean finish. Installing CleanSpace will prevent the start of a musty smell in the crawl space while keeping out pests and preventing mold. Vicki now has no worries about her crawl space and can even repurpose it for extra storage.
