The intended use for this below-grade space was only for utilities at the time it was built. Over the years, groundwater found its way through this soft and porous foundation, making this an unlivable space.
Uneven foundation walls and floors pose unique problems. This basement required a custom solution to help prevent further damage.
The CleanSpace vapor barrier and WaterGuard perimeter drain catches foundation leaks before it enters the basement.
The CleanSpace vapor barrier is a mold-resistant, plastic liner that can be easily cleaned. CleanSpace stops water, water vapor, and humidity.
Our crew easily installed our below-floor drain behind the water heater.
Any water leaks are directed towards this TripleSafe sump pump. In the event of a power outage, our UltraSump battery backup pump will turn on to keep water out of the basement.
The sump pump discharge line was led through the outside of the foundation wall. Our crew buried 20 feet of the line. Now, foundation leaks will surface far away from the home at this camouflaged LawnScape outlet.
Older stone foundations are bound to leak at one point or another. When this foundation was built in Pittsburgh 130 years ago, it was not intended for usable, living space. Now, the current homeowner wants to address the water leakage issue that developed over the years.
The homeowner heard about us from a friend and scheduled her free inspection. Our specialist designed a full perimeter waterproofing system to address the homeowner's main concerns. The system included our unique below-floor WaterGuard drain (+2 inspection ports), TripleSafe sump pump system, CleanSpace wall vapor barrier, LawnScape underground extension, and 1 IceGuard fitting.
This system works together as one to keep this basement a dry, usable living space.
