Category: Basement Waterproofing
Louise T. was experiencing water in the basement after raining. Although the cellar appeared stable, it was a original crawl space that was dug out to make a basement. This unfinished crawl space allowed water to flood the basement during heavy rains. The homeowner was tired of dealing with the issue and wanted a permanent basement waterproofing solution. Additionally, a long-term basement warranty was desired.
Dry Otter Waterproofing was contracted to install the Fast Track Basement System around the interior perimeter of the basement. An internal trench/speedy drain was connected to capture surface water running down the driveway to the basement garage door.
Additionally, WhiteCap Drainage Matting was installed on the concrete shelf (horizontal section of the wall) in the basement. The 12 mils WhiteCap Liner was installed on the perimeter walls to capture water and moisture. The wall system directs the water down into the Fast Track Drain System, where it drains into a sump basin with a Zoeller sump pump. The sump system collects the water and discharges it to the outside of the house via an exit line.
Lastly, Dry Otter Waterproofing provides a lifetime warranty on their Fast Track Waterproofing System, which is transferable if the home is sold in the future.
ANY SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS:
The design of this basement waterproofing system was unique since it had the concrete shelf and more than vertical walls. By installing the WhiteCap Drainage Matting and WhiteCap Liner the homeowner gained valuable storage space in this area along with the dry basement.
“Thank you for your kindness. The basement is still dry and I am thankful.”
