    IceGuard Installed in Rossville, Illinois
    After

    Rossville, Illinois homeowner Rebecca was troubled by water leaking into her basement. System Design Specialist Luke B. inspected her home and designed a solution to keep her basement dry. Part of the problem was that her gutters drained right at the foundation of her home. This increase in water pressure in the soil caused the water to force its way through her poured foundation.

    Foreman Juan H. and his team waterproofed the basement by installing WaterGuard, TwinPack, and IceGuard. IceGuard is pictured. It is installed to the exterior discharge line to provide an escape for water in the event that the lines become frozen or clogged. Juan and his team also extended the discharge line away from her home. 

    With these solutions, Rebecca's basement is dry and will stay dry.
