Customer had a finished basement with no windows or outside access so she reached out to us for help, to not only add some natural lighting in the basement but also some exits points in case they need to escape during an emergency.
Customer had a standard basement window that was cracked and allowing water to get into the finished basement, the customer reached out to us because they wanted to update the standard window to an Egress with hopes that it would help stop the water from getting into the basement.
For this basement project we installed an Egress Window a Wellduct, Waterguard and a SuperSump Pump. The well duct will direct any water getting in through the window well, down the Waterguard which will then flow to the SuperSump to be pumped out of the basement.
In order to be up to code and call this basement space a legal bedroom, the customer needed to have an Egress Window installed. We came out and installed a 48" x 48" Slider Egress Window.
This customer contacted us looking to waterproof her basement as well as upgrade her sump pump to a newer system with an airtight lid and a battery-powered backup. We chose to offer her the Supersump System. This system features the Zoeller M63 1/3 HP pump, capable of pumping 2,650 gallons per hour, a Waterwatch Alarm System that sounds off if the water rises above the point where the pump should turn on, the Superliner basin and an airtight lid. This system also features a CleanPump Stand, which serves to elevate the the pump from any silt or sediment that may build up at the bottom of the basin. For the battery backup we installed the Ultrasump 4, which features an automatic switching system to keep your basement dry in case of a power outage, main pump failure, tripped breaker or simply an unplugged main pump.
To further waterproof her basement this customer also chose our Waterguard French Drain System and our Cleanspace Wall Liner, which is a 100% waterproof plastic barrier that helps guide any water seepage down to the drainage system.
