Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Basement With Wall Leaks Waterproofed in Battle Creek, MI

Album Description

This basement had dealt with water for a long time. The most water they had ever had in the basement was actually 12 inches! It would come in through floor cracks and cracks in the wall. Our solution was WaterGuard. WaterGuard is a french drain system installed beneath the concrete around the perimeter walls. It captures moisture along the walls and directs it to a sump pump for safe removal from the home. In addition, a cross tile across the center of the basement helped capture moisture under the foundation and prevent it from coming up through floor cracks. Our TripleSafe Sump system was installed here was well. This includes three pumps for ultimate protection. One pump does the bulk of the work while a second pump placed slightly higher in the crock kicks on if the first pump fails or isn't keeping up. The final pump runs on a battery backup and will kick on if the power goes out so that the basement always stays dry. CleanSpace material up the walls helps to brighten the look of the basement and facilitate waterflow into the waterguard system from the walls. CleanSpace is durable and mold resistant. This basement should be much dryer now and the homeowner can breath a sigh of relief when the melting winter snow doesn't seem to find its way inside any longer.
