This homeowner was in dire need of help with his damp, moldy crawlspace. He called us for assistance and we transformed this space for him. We started with regrading to direct water seepage towards the sump pump. Next we took care of a mold issue using our Mold-X2 Cleaner and Botanical. Then we installed SilverGlo insulated wall panels along with our CleanSpace liner and drainage matting for a total crawlspace encapsulation system. The CleanSpace system acts as an effective moisture and vapor barrier while providing a bright, stain-resistant finish that never needs repainting or maintenance.
This project in Severn Maryland was for 4 window replacements. Currently the customer just had 4 standard cut outs for windows, but there weren't actually any windows, just metal frames with foam wedged in the opening. We came out and installed 4 of our EverLast Windows along with 2 Sunhouse Wells with Dome covers.
Upgrade to a Triple Safe SumpPump.
The TripleSafe is made up by 3 Pumps. The first pump is the main pump, a 1/3 horsepower cast iron Zoeller pump that pumps out up to 2600 gallons of water per hour. Pump 2 automatically starts pumping if Pump 1 fails or is overwhelmed by the amount of water getting in. Pump 3 is battery operated and turns on automatically when the power fails.
This customer was in need of a sump pump upgrade so we delivered - in the form of a SuperSump pump system with a cast iron pump, capable of pumping up to 2,300 gallons per hour, a heavy-duty liner with an airtight lid that keeps moisture and critters from coming up into the basement, and a WaterWatch Alarm system which alerts you if the water in your sump gets higher than the point where the pump should turn on, giving you time to address the problem before damage occurs.
Another wise choice by this homeower was our SaniDry Sedona, lovingly referred to as the “Pint-Sized Powerhouse” for its high performance and high efficiency. Small enough to fit in a crawlspace, powerful enough to pull 100 pints of moisture out of the air per day and to move 300 cubic feet per minute (yup, I said minute) of that dry air around your space, and by way of a discharge hose, it automatically drains into your sump system. A true set it and forget it! As an added bonus, the SaniDry’s “duet” filter removes airborne allergens like mold spores, dust and the #1 offender, dust mite droppings!
Although not at all hard on the eyes, this small giant can be tucked away out of site and vented with ductwork into the rooms of your choosing.
Move over store-bought dehumidifiers. You don’t stand a chance against a Sedona!!
This customer was in the market for an Egress installation for their finished basement, and reached out to Basement Systems USA for help. There are many benefits to Egress windows, they add value to your home, due to their large size, they allow a ton of natural lighting to shine through and brighten up the dark basement and, Egress windows are also a quick and safe way to exit the basement in case of an emergency.
For this Egress project we installed a 60x48 Slider Egress Window and paired it with out Egress Rockwell and Rockwell cover.
