This homeowner in Tennyson, IN, knew that the reason the basement was leaking was because of a window. They were rusty, ugly, and open at the top allowing debris, rain, and gutter overflow water to sneak in. The bottom of the window well was dirt which allowed weeds to grow and mud to splash up on the window. The view from his basement was lousy and the maximum amount of natural light wasn't being allowed in.
Design Specialist, Chris Russel, was sent to help the homeowner come up with a plan to fix the windows.
A SunHouse window well cover was this homeowner's easy solution. This light-colored window well features a clear cover that fits nicely and a bottom that prevents weed growth while keeping leaves, debris, and rain out. One of the best benefits is that a lot more sunlight bounces into the basement and brightens up the space because of the light-colored bottom.
Homeowner Jared G. from Oakland City, IN was ready to make all of his basement dreams come true. With the condition of his former basement, he never went down there. Mold covered the walls, and water was puddled on the floor. The space was not healthy and it was a waste of square footage in his home. He decided he wanted a place to hang out with his family and friends and make the investment so if he ever decided he wanted to sell his home, it would be worth more.
Design Specialist, Bob Roberts, was called to do a thorough inspection of Jared's basement. In conclusion, the basement needed mold remediation and a WaterGuard system to make the basement dry. The mold was coated all over the block walls, but it was removed and treated by our crew. The WaterGuard system is a drainage system around the perimeter of the basement which drains directly into your sump pump when water enters through the walls of your basement.
For the finishing products, Jared chose to install MillCreek Flooring. These have the warm, earthy look of wood, but are all plastic. One of the great characteristics of these floors is if there is ever a leak on these floors, just fix it and dry the area, and it's good as new.
This homeowner in Evansville, IN, kept experiencing water in their home every time it would rain. Having to deal with water intrusion in your basement is bad enough - but when the basement is finished, it's much worse! The bottom of the finished walls were damaged and if not taken care of, mold may appear. That's when they decided to give Healthy Spaces a call to solve the problem.
Our System Design Specialist, Bob Roberts, quickly came to evaluate the situation. Aside from waterproofing the basement, he also suggested installed our EverLast Finished Wall Restoration System. When you don't want to rip out your entire finished basement, and have to restore the bottom of your finished walls anyway, EverLast wall panels are the perfect solution!
In order to fix the water problem properly, and protect finished walls in the future, it is necessary to cut the bottom of the finished walls and install a proper drainage system. Then the basement is protected from future water intrusion. But what then? The finished walls need to be restored.
With this method, there is no drywall, paint, or wood to get ruined if it ever gets wet. The panels are cement board, covered with a textured washable vinyl finish, and the trim is all plastic, all installed over metal studs.
Drywall in a basement can pose a serious threat when installed because it's made of organic materials. Concrete is a porous material, so when you have concrete walls, moisture can seep through and on to the drywall. This can cause the drywall to distort and warp, and even worse, can cause mold to grow.
