They have lived in their house for four years, but it wasn’t until recently that homeowners in Chillicothe, OH, noticed a glaring problem in their basement. Water seemed to leak into the basement through the walls and floor during heavy rains. This left puddles behind, as well as visible damage to the walls, floor, and some of their stored belongings.
The owners wanted to fix these problems before any further damage resulted, so they began to research how to best address them. After coming across Ohio Basement’s Authority’s website, the owners were motivated to contact us for more information about how we could assist them. After meeting with one of our trusted inspectors, the owners were eager for one of our crews to install some of our reliable basement waterproofing solutions.
These included the BasementGutter interior drainage system and SafeDri sump pump. The sub-floor BasementGutter system intercepts any seeping water and directs it to the SafeDri sump pump to be pumped out of the home. The home lacked a sump pump system, so the owners were excited to have the reliable SafeDri, complete with a backup battery, protecting their home.
Additionally, we placed an FreezeGuard on the exterior sump pump discharge line. This line also was tied into new downspout conductor lines that were installed on the property.
The homeowners are pleased to now have a dry basement and a healthier home because of these trustworthy solutions.
