In this half finished basement water was staying as the bottom of the bilco doors and needed some sort of drain to remove the water from the door area. Our team dug out a space at the bottom of the stairwell to install our TrenchDrain sub-floor drain system. This drain is connected to our WaterGuard system that will flow any water that the drain intakes to the sump pump system, which then pumps the water out and safely away from the home.
The homeowner was getting a mass amount of water in the basement and the bottom of the stairwell had no access to drain the water. We dug out a trench in between the door and stairwell to install our TrenchDrain Entry Drainage system that is designed to capture the surface water. The heavy-duty plastic drain is reinforced which prevents rust, moisture damage and averts water coming into the home, keeping your area dry.
This returning customer reached out to Basement Systems for wall restoration and floor repair. The team went to the property, trimmed back the walls 4' and hauled away the debris. After the wall restoration we removed and installed our Elite Plank flooring that is made from inorganic material that is unsusceptible to water or mold. Our flooring is designed to work with our basement waterproofing and finishing systems.
Here's a customer that with heavy rains his exising drain wasn't enough to stop water from coming in under his walkout basement door. This issue would cause his basement to flood to his old sump pump was. We installed a TrenchDrain outside the door with some WaterGuard XL as well as our Z Triplesafe 3. He so satisfied with our system, he decided to replace the existing flooring with our Elite Plank- Walnut flooring.
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.
