Waterproofing a Basement in Latrobe, PA
For one homeowner in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, a wet basement was proving to be a major headache. When the spring thaw first came and melted away the ice accumulated outside the home, water would seep in, causing damage to the floors and threatening the structural integrity of the storage space she had created.
As the seepage became worse over time, the concerned owner contacted The Basement Guys® to take a closer look at the space. Our waterproofing team evaluated the space and recommended a few fixes to the walls and floor that would lock out moisture for good.
First, we sealed the cracks in the foundation walls that allowed water to leak through with FlexiSpan® sealant. Then, once the basement was dry, we began excavating a portion of the concrete floor along the base of the walls. We installed WaterGuard® below-floor drain pipes there, which would easily and discreetly collect water from foundation leaks and divert it to a sump pump for removal. As for the pump, a new SuperSump® sump pump system provides fast and efficient drainage. Finally, to ensure that water would stop leaking through the walls, we applied BrightWall® rigid plastic sheeting to the walls.
Thanks to these reliable solutions, the home was safe from water intrusion and the basement storage room was secure for years to come. For more information on our full suite of waterproofing products and services, call The Basement Guys® today and schedule your free in-home estimate.
