Homeowners in Columbus, OH, have owned and rented out a property to tenants for more than 10 years. During that time, they have noticed issues with water in the basement getting worse. Water usually seeps through the walls and floor, and the owners have had to completely gut the finished basement to clean up and remove any damage. They hope to be long-term owners of the property, so keeping it a healthy and dry environment for their tenants is very important to them.
Ready to find a permanent solution, the owners contacted Ohio Basement Authority. One of our certified inspectors completed a thorough evaluation at the 90-year-old home, and proposed various permanent basement waterproofing solutions.
Per our inspector's recommendations, one of our expert crews installed excavated the basement's perimeter to install the sub-floor BasementGutter drainage system. This system is applicable to all types of foundations including block, concrete, stone, etc. Weep holes are drilled into the walls to drain water into the system. Water enters this system through inlet holes and flows in the BasementGutter conduit to a sump pump.
The older sump pump that was beginning to fail was replaced by the always reliable SafeDri Triple sump pump. Three powerful pumps inside the liner will always work pump water out of and away from the basement. Combined, the non-clogging BasementGutter System and SafeDri Triple Sump Pump System offer complete protection from wet basements.
The owners were excited to have these various products installed so the basement will always remain dry for may years to come.
