Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Greensburg, PA Basement Addition Reclaimed from the Elements

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014 by Taylor Brletich

Challenge

This home located in Greensburg, Pennsylvania was experiencing water along the perimeter of the foundation walls and in the spare room located under the home's front porch. Fed up with being unable to use the space, the owner contacted Bakers Waterproofing in an effort to take control of the situation and protect their home from the elements.

Solution

 After our sales advisor got out to the house and gave the owner his assessment, a crew from Bakers was able to get to work.

First, in order to remove the water that was building up around the edge of the foundation, they installed a WaterGuard below-floor drainage system. This french drainage system collects the water that enters the basement and redirects it on a path that ends with a sump pump. Which led our crew to their next task: the sump pump installation.

For this job, the advisor knew that the best choice was the SuperSump, sump pump system. This is one of our best selling products and it's quiet, powerful and reliable attributes made it perfect for this job. 

Lastly, the crew finished the installation by adding CleanSpace drainage matting to the floor. This matting consists of a dimpled plastic mat material that creates a drainage space to help water find its way off the floor in into the SuperSump.
