These homeowners just purchased this second home several months ago. After living in their new home for a short period they realized that they had a water and humidity issue. More specifically, water was coming in at the wall-floor joints and a couple of cracks on the floor as well. Because of the water intrusion, they decided to contact Basement Systems of New York to see how we could help their home. This project in itself was unique because of the fact that their home has a step footing versus a traditional footing.
To take care of the water issue at hand we dug around the perimeter of their basement, as well through the center of it to create our trench as well as laterals. Once done we installed our FlowGuard waterproofing system and tied it into our TripleSafe sump pump. Before applying concrete on top of our system, we applied both the drain mat and CleanSpace to the walls. Finally, before turning the basement back over to the homeowners, we installed our SaniDry XP dehumidification system to keep the areas free of any excess moisture or humidity.
Since installing our patented products their basement has been dry, as well the environment both downstairs and upstairs has completely changed for the better. They now have a fully functional home that they do not have to worry about every single night when they go to bed.
The Turtle Hatch, is perfect for creating a secure access into your crawl space. It is efficient, aesthetically pleasing, and most of all safer. This system was installed in Eldred, New York.
These homeowners contacted Basement Systems of New York to see how we could remedy the water problem that they have been dealing with for several years. Because of how wet 2021, they continued receiving water in their basement in the obvious spots that they always saw. They also saw their basement take on water on their back wall, something that they had never seen till now. Once this new water problem emerged, they said enough is enough and decided to take care of the issue at hand.
To take care of the water issue plaguing this basement, we started by creating a trench around the entire perimeter of their basement with two laterals along the front and back of the basement to mitigate hydrostatic pressure. Once everything was dug out we started to lay our perforated pipe and cover it with gravel through the entirety of our trench and laterals. This piping will eventually tie into our sump pump and direct any water caught by our system out of the home.
Next, we drilled our weep holes on the bottom of their block foundation. These weep holes allow us to redirect water that is entering their home to our waterproofing system. After drilling our weep holes throughout the perimeter of their foundation, we installed our DryTrak and FlowGuard waterproofing system before applying concrete to the trench we created and returning the basement to its former glory before we started their project.
Since completing this project, these homeowners have not seen any water in their basement, as well they were able to finish their basement. More importantly, than anything to the peace of mind had been restored to them.
