Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Basement Transformation in Vincennes, IN
A homeowner in Vincennes, IN, was interested in waterproofing her basement. After recent heavy rainfall, she decided that it was time to waterproof her basement, in hopes of improving the space for more storage or potential living. The walls were white, with muddy stains that ran down to the bottom of the floor. If a basement has been damp for a while, it can affect the home's health overall. Mold, sticking doors or windows, and increased heating and cooling bills are just a few problems that homeowners deal with if their basement is not dry and properly treated.
To protect the home's environment, the walls are covered and sealed with CleanSpace to prevent water vapor from affecting the rest of the space. As water leaks the next time it rains, CleanSpace will stop water vapor and direct it towards the WaterGuard system that is installed in the ground. The WaterGuard system collects water and moves it towards the sump pump. The SuperSump pump is installed to pump water out and away from the house. The homeowner was pleased to have a productive and reliable system to keep her basement dry and her electric bills bow.
The basement before it was waterproofed had water leaking in from the walls.
A trench is constructed for the WaterGuard System to lay down in.

The WaterGuard system is laid into the ground to direct water that came in through the CleanSpace down to the WaterGuard. The WaterGuard system will then direct water to the SuperSump pump.
