A jack hammer is used to create the perimeter trench for the Waterguard system. Installation of Waterguard perimeter drain system progresses by digging out the trench and clearing it for the waterguard to be laid.
Sump pump is installed
Once the Waterguard is installed, cement is poured to cover the system and set it in place
The interior is thoroughly cleaned to remove debris and the system is tested.
Here is a challenging section of the project, where the team had to install Waterguard underneath a nonload bearing wall in the semi-finished basement.
Here, you can see the exterior drainage line with Iceguard as it is installed. This will move the water out of the basement and far away from the home, so it doesn't sink back into the basement
Here, the technician is testing the Waterguard system to insure that all the components are properly functioning.
Here is the lawnscape, a special corrugated plastic cover for the drainage line. It allows the water out, but creates a safe exit point--no tripping or divots to deal with here!
