A Constant Problem
Kenneth was struggling with water seeping into her basement where the wall meets the floor and other cracks on the floor. This is what he frequently faced when entering her basement.
Patching Rarely Works
The first thing NOT to do is try to patch a crack on the surface of the wall inside because cracks can move. Changes in soil's moisture level can cause the wall to swell ir shrink, hot and cold seasonal changes make the wall move, and the earth outside uses the crack as an expansion and contraction joint.
Realizing Professional Help is Needed
The problem faced was occurring throughout her entire basement. This made the situation even more stressful for him and forced him to take action.
Beginning of the Transformation
For the WaterGuard installation process to begin, the concrete near the perimeter walls was removed. Once the concrete was removed, the WaterGuard drain could be set into place.
A New Sump Pump
Once the concrete has been replaced, this floor is once again seamless. The WaterGuard system goes virtually unnoticed and is a welcomed asset to the home. The Triple Safe sump pump is level with the floor and close to the wall making it minimally invasive of the useful space in this basement.
