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.
In this basement we removed the old sump pump system that wasn't pumping out water for our SuperSump premium sump pump system with a Zoeller M53 cast iron pump. The pump system is also equipped with an air tight lid with a floor drain and a WaterWatch alarm system that alerts you if water level rises too high. By installing this reliable high-volume pump the basement will be effectively waterproofed, dry from odors, moisture and even radon gas.
