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.
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.
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!
Working in a basement environment is often hard because there are obstacles in the way that cannot be moved. Obstacles such as pipes, ductwork, water tanks and electrical boxes, to name a few. We do our best to work around these obstacles while also installing the correct products to keep your basement dry.
The owner of this home in West Kingston, RI contacted us for a free estimate stating water runs down from an open bulkhead, down the stairs and runs like a river in the basement, depending on the severity of the storm. We came in and installed TrenchDrain that directed that water to the SuperSump.
