Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Basement Waterproofing in Edwardsport, IN
Homeowners Sara and Matthew T. had many issues with their home that they were finally ready to fix. With their growing family, they knew they needed to make their home a healthy atmosphere to raise children in. Their home was passed down to them from family and has was built over 70 years ago. With the water in the basement being their main concern, they have found a few issues that contribute to it. The side wall in the cellar off basement has a crack across the wall, and the basement windows leak when it rains. Since their basement has had standing water since winter, they got a store-bought pump and dehumidifier to try to fix the issue, but it hasn't worked.
Design Specialist, Chris Russell, was sent to Sara and Matthew's home to listen to and see their concerns. He did a thorough inspection and sat down with the homeowners to give them their free estimate, and agreed with everything that needed to be completed. First and foremost, the basement would need a WaterGuard perimeter system installed to catch all of the intruding rain. This water would then lead to the TripleSafe sump pump, where it would be taken out and away from the house through discharge lines. A SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier would sit in the basement next to the sump pump to take all of the moisture out of the air.
The kids will now be able to utilize the extra spaces as well.
The SaniDry is a high capacity and efficiency dehumidification system. It takes up to 100 pints of water per day out of the air while using the same energy as a 40 pint.
Standing water needs to be addressed before you fix any problem in your basement.
The water on the far left wall shows signs that there was water. In this scenario, the water was running down the wall when it rained because it was coming in through the window.
A high-quality sump pump system is essential and must include a sump liner, reliable pump, alarm system, pump stand, check valve, and an airtight lid with a floor drain.
