Mike and Andrea D. of Columbia had major water issues in their basement and crawlspace. Their stone foundation had numerous cracks and gaps that allowed an alarming amount of water to leak into both their basement and crawlspace. Neither could be used for storage without their belongings becoming water damaged so they called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist Mike T. inspected the basement and found that the best solution would be a basement and crawlspace waterproofing system.
Along the foundation walls in the basement and crawlspace, Woods installed CleanSpace. CleanSpace is a thick durable moisture barrier that can be installed on uneven surfaces like the stone foundation in this home. It prevents moisture from entering into the basement through the walls and instead directs it to the drainage system below.
The WaterGuard drainage system was installed under the cement floors along the perimeter of the basement. WaterGuard is designed to collect water from the foundation walls and joints were the walls meet the floors, the places where most water intrusion occurs, and drains it to the sump pump for removal. Because it is situated on top of the concrete footing of the home, the WaterGuard system is kept safely away from mud that might clog it.
Woods installed the Twin Pack to take the water from the drainage system and pump it out and away from the basement through its discharge lines. The Twin Pack contains two powerful cast-iron pumps that sit within different levels within the sump liner. This allows the Twin Pack to be effective against small leaks and heavy downpours.
IceGuards were installed on the discharge lines on the exterior of the home. IceGuards prevent water from coming back into the basement if the lines become frozen during cold winter months. They feature slotted openings that give water an alternative escape route into the yard.
Mike and Andrea D. have peace of mind that the can safely store their belongings in their basement and crawlspace because they will stay dry.
Dawn H. of Columbia, IL had a beautiful finished basement that was carpeted and housed expensive electronics. There was a big problem: water was seeping in underneath the finished walls, damaging the carpet and threatening their belongings. Dawn didn’t want to leave the problem and risk further damage so she called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist Chris B. inspected her basement and recommended a full perimeter waterproofing system.
Woods installed WaterGuard under the concrete floors of the basement along the walls. WaterGuard is a drainage system that collects water from the foundation walls and floors of the basement and drains it away to the sump pump.
The TripleSafe Sump Pump System was installed to collect the water from the WaterGuard and pump it out and away from the basement through the discharge lines. The TripleSafe contains three pumps: a primary, a secondary and a battery back up pump, ensuring the basement stays dry even when the forecast calls for downpours. On the exterior of the home, IceGuards were installed on the discharge lines. If the lines become frozen or clogged, water can escape through the slotted openings of the IceGuard and not come back into the basement.
Dawn H. has peace of mind that her basement and belongings are safe from water damage because it will remain dry.
Miranda B. of Columbia, IL had an alarming amount of water come into her finished basement any time there was bad weather. It was causing water damage to her finished walls as well as the furniture and other belongings she kept in her basement. She was tired of worrying every time the forecast called for rain so she called Woods Basement Systems for a free, no obligation estimate. Design Specialist Jeremy K. assessed her basement and recommended installing a waterproofing system to handle the water problem.
Under the concrete floors of the basement, WaterGuard was installed. WaterGuard is a drainage system that sits on the footing and away from any mud that may clog it as it collects water from the walls and floors and drains it away to the sump pump.
A Twin Pack sump pump was installed. It contains a primary and secondary pump sitting at different levels within the sump liner so if the primary pump fails or is unable to keep up with the amount of unwanted water coming in, the secondary pump will work with it to ensure that water continues being pumped out of the basement through the discharge lines and safely away from the basement. IceGuards were installed on the discharge lines so that, in the event the lines become frozen or clogged, the water can escape through its slotted openings instead of coming back into the basement.
Miranda B. no longer worries about severe weather because she knows that her finished basement and belongings will stay dry.
