Patrick Cahill, our system design specialist proposed a full waterproofing system to keep this customer's basement dry. The customer in Westerly also used us to waterproof his second property nearby.
The tall crawlspace in the Westerly, Rhode Island property was very damp and dirty. There was water and dirt coming up from the ground causing mud. The home owner had seen an ad for DryZone Basement Systems and contacted us for a free estimate. The project consisted of encapsulating the crawlspace and making sure it was safe from any moisture or water. A sump pump system was also installed as a precautionary measure.
WaterGuard is the drainage system DryZone uses around the perimeter of the basement to stop water from entering through the floor/wall seam. This property in Westerly, RI needed the WaterGuard installed right where the basement stairs were! We came in and removed the lower stair treads to install the WaterGuard system and put them right back when we were done!
In Westerly, RI the basement of this condo was dealing with a large wall crack that was letting water seep onto the floor. For this crack we used our Flexispan system to seal the crack and prevent further leakages. The process includes cleaning out the crack and adding two layers of sealant, one that goes inside the crack one that creates a drainage channel over the crack. With the channel there, any water that could leak after the repair will get caught and stay off the basement floor. Then we put a layer of CleanSpace over the whole system for another layer of protection.
The before picture shows mold growth and a dirty, musty crawl space with a vapor barrier that was not properly installed. Our crew installed CleanSpace vapor barrier along with a SmartSump pump system because the customer would get standing water in the crawl space. In the after picture, you can also see the SaniDry CX crawl space dehumidifier to keep the relative humidity low so mold cannot grow.
