Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Badly Water-Damaged Matthews, MO Basement Prior To Waterproofing
This album of a Matthews, Missouri home showcases how bad water can affect a basement if not properly dealt with. This homeowner had been dealing with water pouring through his window frames for many years, and he had attempted to fix the problem by walling off the windows from the outside and sealing them from the inside. This did not work, however; and he had to call in Woods Basement Systems for help.

Leaking Window Frame
You can see just how much water would stream through the window frame and run down the walls.
The owner attempted to mitigate the leaks by boarding up his windows. Obviously, this does not work.
Retaining Wall Collapse
The retaining wall installed by the owner in an attempt to stop the leaks was collapsing due to the soil pressure.
Old, Ineffective Sump Pump
The basement's existing sump pump was simply not doing the job and was in desperate need of replacement.
