Reliable Basement Waterproofing Products Will Keep a Flooding Basement Dry in Crown City, OH

Wednesday, July 13th, 2016 by Holly Richards-Purpura


After living in his house for three years, a homeowner in Crown City, OH, wanted to refinance his home. Before doing so, his bank required various repairs be completed. This included waterproofing the basement.

The basement had some dampness and moisture issues, so the homeowner wanted to make sure the house would be a healthy and dry living environment. He contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company through online resources like Home Advisor.

The night before his scheduled appointment with Inspector Brendan Kent, several waves of strong thunderstorms with heavy rain hit the area. All of this rain had nowhere to go but inside the homeowner’s basement, causing a flood.

Brendan visited the next day to assess the basement, and he presented the homeowner with several options that would permanently keep his basement dry.


Per Brendan’s suggestions, one of our expert crews installed the best waterproofing products in the industry.

The perimeter of the floor was excavated for the installation of the BasementGutter interior drainage system. If any water seeps into the basement, it will be intercepted by the BasementGutter. Sections of drainage pipe also were installed along the wall with an access door where the flooding water may have entered the basement. This system was also connected to the BasementGutter system.

Water intercepted by the BasementGutter or drainage pipe systems will then be directed to the SafeDri Prox sump pump, then safely and effectively pumped out of the basement and away from the home’s foundation.

A FreezeGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line, and a YardWell was added to camouflage the end of this discharge line that was buried underground.

The homeowner was pleased to have these many reliable waterproofing solutions installed so the basement, as well as the rest of the home, will be a healthier living environment for many years to come.
