Basement Finishing Photo Album: New Windows in Odon, IN
Homeowners in Odon, IN, had issues for quite some time of water intruding their basement when it rained. Another problem was that their basement was also finished. Having drywall and moisture can lead to mold in the basement. Wet, damaged drywall basement walls can be a breeding ground for mold and odors. It's what causes that musty smell in basements, and causes discoloration and rot of building materials.
After calling Healthy Spaces for a free inspection, System Design Specialist, Jake Stilwell, met with these homeowners to discuss their options and together came up with the best solution that fit their needs.
The homeowner had 5 window wells that were 25 years old, and the water was seeping in the finished basement through them. The crew installed our SunHouse window enclosure to ensure a dry basement. These products are light-colored and feature a sturdy, clear cover that fits nicely and a bottom that prevents weed growth and keeps leaf, debris, and rain out.
Dirt Against the Glass
The dirt pressed against the window is allowing extra pressure. It is a matter of time before the glass breaks or cracks, and more water leaks into the finished basement.
Rock Inside the Window Well
Here you can see the rock-filled inside the window cover. This allows leaves, debris, rain, and gutter overflow to gather here.
A Great Solution
The SunHouse Window Enclosure features a sturdy, clear cover that fits nicely and a bottom that prevents growth, debris, and rain.
One of the best benefits is that with the clean, light-colored bottom, a lot more sunlight bounces into your basement and brightens up space where we can use all the natural light we can get.
The cover of the SunHouse enclosure keeps dirt, debris, and weed from getting in your SunHouse.
Water Entering the Basement through Old Windows
The enemy of a finished basement is water. With the cracked window, water would easily find a way in.
