She has lived in her house for almost three years, but it wasn’t until recently that a homeowner in Columbus, OH, noticed water leaking into her basement. This seemed to be a constant occurrence, and at one point she had as much as one foot of water in the basement.
The owner had had enough of cleaning up the water and the mess it left behind, and not being able to use her basement for laundry or storage the way she intended. She contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online, and we presented her with several permanent solutions that will always keep her basement dry.
The homeowner was eager for us to install these waterproofing products that included the sub-floor BasementGutter interior drainage system and SafeDri Sump Pump. These products work hand in hand by intercepting any seeping water and pumping this water out of the home. An FreezeGuard was attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line, and this line was directed to drain far away from the home’s foundation in the yard. The end of the line was camouflaged with a YardWell outlet.
The unsightly basement walls also were covered with CrawlSeal liner. Not only does this liner greatly improve the appearance of the walls, it also aids in waterproofing by allowing any seeping water to flow behind the durable, waterproof material and down to the BasementGutter system below.
The homeowner was pleased these reliable solutions were installed so her basement will be a safe and dry for many years to come.
