This is what the basement in the home looked like before Whitney called us to come up with solutions to the issue. Her sump pump was not keeping up with the water intrusion so it was causing flooding.
Water Signs on Foundation Wall
You can see the different colors on the foundation wall, the darker color on the bottom are signs of water. To keep the home lasting for generations, she needed a waterproofing system to cover all the issues.
Installing the Drain
DryTrak is getting installed as the first step to a dry basement. This is a perimeter drain and collects the water that runs down the wall to send to the sump pump.
Wall Coverings Create Clean Looking Spaces
The clean white of the walls is the CleanSpace wall system. It gives a bright, clean look to the unfinished basement and keeps out moisture. This wall system also has UltraFresh attached which prevents the growth of mold!
In the back corner you can see the dehumidifier which helps to keep the basement dry and the home free of mold and rot. The metal posts that you see are SmartJacks which stabilize sagging floors and raise them back to the correct level. They are also adjustable which provide the home a permanent solution.
Waterproofed Basement and Happy Homeowners
Once the drain is installed and the SmartJacks are adjusted, the concrete is restored to all areas in the basement. The discoloration is due to the concrete not being dry yet but once it is, the basement is dry and ready to be used once again!
