The Basement Guys® Cleveland Case Studies: A Combination of Waterproofing Products in Cortland, Ohio

Tuesday, June 29th, 2021 by Cheyenne Brown


A homeowner had previously had some waterproofing performed in his Cortland, Ohio home. He walked down into this area one day to find that the waterproofing had failed. There was water seeping into the basement from the base of the wall, but he could not see any potential bowing or cracks due to drywall.

This particular situation was very frustrating for this homeowner because of the previous work by another company. He was very anxious to have the problem resolved promptly. This individual got in contact with our Basement Professionals for a free estimate and recommendation for a solution.


The professional recommendation to fix this basement problem was to install a combination of the waterproofing products offered by The Basement Guys. These products included the WaterGuard Below Floor Drain®, the SuperSump® Premier Sump Pump System, and an UltraSump® Battery Backup System. The combination of these products was able to eliminate the water seepage that was occurring in this Cortland, Ohio home and give the homeowner back his dry basement area.
Mr. Homeowner was very appreciative of the quick installation process and clean finished look after this project. Because the drain was installed under the concrete, the owner can use his basement completely without worrying about a chunky, invasive, and unattractive drain system bordering the perimeter of this room.
