Bill is facing a very concerning problem; his entire basement is flooded with water. This basement that once was a beautiful place, is now in disarray. To avoid damage, everything had to be relocated.
The old sump pump system shown here sure could use an upgrade! With all the water present in Bill's basement this sump pump can't keep up and has had the chance to shut off. This sump pump is also missing several of the key elements of an effective sump pump system.
In our assessment we found that this section of wall was where all the water was coming from. We removed the lower portion of the drywall and installed WaterGuard near the wall. The new cement will lighten in color as it dries, eliminating color difference.
Triple Safe to the rescue! The Triple Safe sump pump system that was installed contains the key missing components that Bill's previous sump pump did not have, an air tight lid, floor drain, pump stand, and a pump alarm. These are the essential features needed to help keep a basement dry.
To make Bill's walls look beautiful again, we installed the EverLast Finished Wall Restoration System. This paneling not only fixed the current condition of Bill's damaged walls, but it also ensured his basement is safe from any type of water leak in the future. The paneling replaces the bottom 32" of the drywall and is extremely durable. It is also inorganic, meaning Bill will not have to worry about mold growth.
Bill elected for us to install the SaniDry XP, a high-performance dehumidifier and filtration system. In Bill's basement, the SaniDry will help prevent mold and reduce musty odors, giving his home dry healthy air and total comfort.
The EverLast wall will work with the WaterGuard system that was installed to ensure water can efficiently exit Bill's home. Not to mention, this paneling looks great and ties in well with Bill's already finished basement!
Our friend Bill in Johannesburg, MI began experiencing water seepage where the wall meets the floor, in one section of his partially finished basement. This issue was leaving his entire basement covered in several inches of water.
Upon receiving Bill’s call for help, we examined the issues in his basement and prescribed WaterGuard to remedy the problem. Installed along the home's footing, beneath the concrete, WaterGuard collects water along the base of the perimeter walls and safely directs it to a sump pump for removal from the home. Additionally, we installed a Triple Safe sump pump to enhance the function of the WaterGuard. TripleSafe is a safeguard feature that includes the use of three pumps to ensure this basement will stay dry, even in power outages and severe weather events. In the case of heavy water or primary pump failure, the second and more powerful pump will kick in, if there is a power outage the battery powered UltraSump will take over.
Thanks to this installment Bill’s basement is now dry; and more beautiful then we found it. With this installment, the water issues that have plagued Bill’s basement will undoubtedly be a thing of the past.
