This home in Altamont, IL. was experiencing water leaks through the tiny gap between the foundation walls and the floor. Although they had a sump pump to remove water in the home, the homeowners needed a perimeter drainage system to collect the leaks and direct them to the sump pump.
The best system for them was WaterGuard™. WaterGuard™ is a specially designed perimeter drainage system that gets installed directly on top of the footing just beneath the floor. Because it is on top of the footing, WaterGuard™ stays clear of the mud that surrounds the footing. Since it is out of the mud, WaterGuard™ doesn't need filter fabrics, which can clog and make other systems ineffective over time. WaterGuard™ will collect water as it rises above the footing, redirecting it to the sump pump before it can rise above the surface of the floor.
WaterGuard™ was installed along the walls around the existing sump pump and drained into the sump pit. This way, WaterGuard™ was able to work with existing waterproofing systems to keep the basement dry and protected.
Woods Basement Systems was called out to this Highland, Illinois basement to help with water leak issues. The basement was plagued with leaks during extended periods of rain, and the homeowner was tired of the cleanup. In order to waterproof the space, a Woods team installed WaterGuard drains underneath the flooring at the base of the leaking walls to catch any water and prevent it from making its way into the space.
Ryan D. of Litchfield, Illinois had water leaking into his basement, so he call Woods Basement Systems for help. Systems design specialist, Clint W. found a solution and recommended installing a TripleSafe sump pump and WaterGuard.
Foreman, Joshua B. installed the products. The TripleSafe sump pump has three ways that guarantees it to keep you home dry all year round: a primary pump, a secondary pump and a backup battery-powered pump. The WaterGuard installed around the perimeter of the basement floor and it is used to collect water that seeps through the basement walls and guides it to the sump pump to be removed from the home.
Now Ryan D. has a dry basement.
WaterGuard drains are installed around the perimeter of basement walls to collect water leaks and direct them towards the sump pump. These drains will prevent the homeowner from having water damaged walls that would affect the safety of the home's foundation. WaterGuard drains are a french designed drainage system that will keep a previously musty, wet basement healthy and dry.
Joan, a Mehlville, Missouri homeowner, was experiencing new problems with a wet basement. She had worked with Woods Basement Systems before to install a sump pump so, she gave Woods a call. System Design Specialist Clint W. determined this time the problem was exterior and developed an ideal plan for Joan.
Foreman Greg H. and his crew installed an exterior sump pump and sill plate drainage. The sill plate is the meeting place of the foundation and the floor joist. This creates a gap and leaves a place for pooled water to enter the structure. Although landscaping normally leads away from the building, overtime the landscaping can build up around the home.
By putting in sill plate drainage and rocks we can redirect the water away from the foundation. Burying the downspouts and leading them away from the home is also a good way to avoid water from pooling near the foundation.
The exterior sump pump was added because we could not lead the discharge line far enough away. The sump pump forces the water away.
Joan can now enjoy her dry basement and have peace of mind the Woods is always there to keep her home comfortable.
This home in Frontenac, MO. had a TripleSafe™ sump pump system keeping the basement dry and protected from water leaks. The time had come for a maintenance inspection to make sure the TripleSafe™ was working as well as it could.
Woods Basement Systems pro Clint W. came by to check each of the three pumps in the TripleSafe™ system and install a Sedona dehumidifier. If one pump fails, the other two pumps would be able to keep the basement dry and protected and, because one pump is battery powered, the TripleSafe™ will also work when the power goes out. Of course, there's no reason to leave a faulty pump installed, so if one pump was not working Clint would replace it during that same inspection with a new pump.
Clint W. also checked the dual discharge lines to make sure that water flows all the way through them and doesn't leak out anywhere. He also checked outside to make sure the end of the line was clear of debris and that water could flow out of the sump pump safely.
As a final measure, Clint also installed a Sedona dehumidifier to dry the air and help keep the home comfortable and energy efficient. That's the kind of pro-active service that Woods Basement Systems can offer.
These homeowners were concerned when they saw leaks and excess water in their basement, so they called Woods Basement 'Systems for assistance. Design Specialist Clint W. recommended them custom-fit drainage solution to remove the water from the home.
Team Woods installed WaterGuard drain systems, which are positioned beneath the floor slab for powerful drainage without any clogs or unsightly appearance. Now the homeowners can rest easy knowing WaterGuard will keep their basement clean and dry.
John H. of Soulard, MO. needed a better way to dry and clean the air in his basement. His old dehumidifier just couldn't keep the air from feeling damp and uncomfortable. That's why Clint W. upgraded his dehumidifier to the Sedona.
The Sedona is a powerful dehumidifier that can remove up to 100 pints of water from the air in a single day. All that water is drained directly into the sump pump system, so there's no emptying buckets and the Sedona won't fill up an shut off. Not only can it dry out the basement air, but it also has an air filter that can remove even the tiniest of problematic particles from the air. Things like dust mite droppings, which can cause allergic reactions, and mold spores that could grow damaging mold on the walls and ceiling of the basement are removed from the air by the Sedona.
John H. can enjoy clean, dry air like never before now that he's upgraded his dehumidifier to the Sedona.
