Having a safe and healthy home is very important to homeowners in West Milton, OH. They recently purchased and moved into their new house, but were discouraged by some problems in the basement. They noticed water leakedinside every time it rained, and this lead to minor flooding in the basement. The owners plan to live in the house for the foreseeable future, and this was not something they wanted to have to deal with every time the skies open up.
The owners found information about Ohio Basement Authority online, and they were motivated to contact us for further guidance. Inspector John Becker Sr. visited to complete a thorough evaluation of the problematic basement. John then presented the owners with some of our reliable waterproofing solutions.
Foreman Julio Garcia and his crew then waterproofed the basement with the BasementGutter interior drainage system, SafeDri Triple sump pump system, CrawlSeal wall system, dehumidifier, and external FreezeGuards and discharge line.
The perimeter of the basement was first excavated to properly install BasementGutter. BasementGutter is specially designed to sit in the sub-floor and atop the footing to accept seeping water from the walls and floor. Any water intercepted by BasementGutter is then directed to drain to the SafeDri Triple system. This system features three powerful pumps inside its liner, as well as an external backup battery to ensure continued operation even during power outages. FreezeGuards were attached to the exterior sump pump discharge lines, and these lines converged into one new discharge line that was placed in the ground and directed to drain at the street-side curb.
Additionally, CrawlSeal was placed on the walls. This thick, durable, waterproof material is typically used in crawl space encapsulations, but it has other practical applications, as well. Any water that seeps through the walls will automatically run behind CrawlSeal and down to the sub-floor BasementGutter system.
A dehumidifier also was installed to clean and filter the air, control moisture and humidity, and reduce odors and the potential for mold growth.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these trustworthy repairs have helped them create a safer and healthier living environment.
