This basement had accumulated years of water damage that derived due to hydrostatic pressure that was placed on the basement. Hydrostatic pressure can lead to escalated damage if not treated quickly.
Water leaks had weakened the walls causing them to develop cracks. This homeowner patched up the cracks and wanted a permanent solution to prevent further cracking.
The floor also suffered because of water leaks. Water would often leak in where the floor meets the walls.
Before Waterproofing & Foundation Repair
Before renovations, this basement wasn't dry or safe. The basement wasn't used as an asset to the home because it was water damaged.
Due to the water leaks, the air in this basement was moist and of bad quality. The previous dehumidifier wasn't able to keep up with the demand!
SaniDry™ XP Basement Dehumidifier
The SandiDry dehumidifier was installed to give the homeowner peace of mind knowing that the dehumidifier would operate properly at all times and could handle double the about of water than their previous dehumidifier.
WaterGuard Drains to Waterproof
The WaterGuard drains were installed in the footing of the basement walls to collect the pesky water leaks and send them to the basement sump pump to be pumped out of the home.
Geo-Locks for Foundation Repair
Next, Geo-Lock wall anchors were anchored outside of the home to pull the wall back into its original position. A WaterGuard system works to resecure the water damaged walls permanently.
