Problem: Window wells are necessary to keep the structure around a window draining properly, keep water and debris away from the window and to improve egress.
Solution: We installed window wells on all the basement windows of this home.
Problem: This home's basement seeped water in and did not have an efficient sump pump. There was carpet directly on the concrete slab.
Solution: We installed a perimeter footing drain, a sump pump system with our battery backup, Bright Wall panels behind the laundry sink and Everlast Finished Wall System around the bathroom. Thermal Dry tiles were put down to keep the floor warmer and dry!
Problem: An unfinished cold storage area is a great place to store items to keep cool, such as canned food, even in the warm summer months. Although closed off from the rest of the house, if there’s water penetrating any area, it creates a damp, humid and unhealthy environment which affects the entire home in what is known as “The Stack Effect”.
Solution: We installed a French drain system on the problem walls in the cold storage area, added a powerful sump pump with a battery backup for improved drainage and reliability and finished it off with our BrightWall® rigid basement wall system. Now this cold storage area is dry, heathy and will look fantastic for years to come.
Problem: Even newer homes can have problem basements. This basement often felt damp and smelled musty. Excess water vapour was entering the space from the unsealed sump pump lid.
Solution: To help control humidity, we installed the super quiet and efficient SaniDry™ Sedona Dehumidifier. It’s connected directly to their updated sump pump system, so with regular maintenance, these homeowners will never have to worry about excess moisture or a damp feeling basement again.
Problem: This home has an unfinished basement that is used to house the laundry and mechanical components of the home; such as the hot water tank, electrical and the heating system. There was considerable evidence that water was penetrating from some of the exterior walls as well as up through the floor of the basement; causing cracks, water to pool on the floor and damage to the systems of the home.
Solution: Our team installed a perimeter drain on the leaky walls as well as a trench drain in the problem areas of the floor. We then finished off with some concrete work. Now these homeowners enjoy a clean, dry and safe basement as well as peace of mind knowing that the basement and home’s systems won’t suffer from any further water damage.
What a transformation!
