This old, cold, and leaking window needed to be replaced with a new high efficient vynel window. We also installed a WellDuct window well drain in the window well outside. This drian is connected into the interior Waterguard systems to prevent window well flooding. We also wanted to prevent vapour transmision, so the ThermalWall vapor barrier was installed. Thermal Wall also reflects up to 97% of the heat back into the basement.
These are pictures of a typical city row home basement entry. The stairwells often flood because the drain is not big enough or not connected properly for an outlet. By installing proper drainage and a large TrenchDrain, the water can now be easily managed.
This project in Parton, MD included a Triple Safe sump pump with battery Back-up, WaterGaurd drainage system, and Thermal wall vapor barrier.
This job required that we remove the bottom of the moldy drywall so that a waterproofing system could be installed. We also installed a TripleSafe sump system that can pump over 6000 gallons of water and has a battery back-up pumping system. We never use drywall to restore the wall because it is too vulnerable to mold and water damage. Basement Systems only uses in-organic TBF EverLast wall that comes with a 50 year guarantee against water or mold damage.
This basement was still wet from the last rain. It needed the patented basement waterproofing systems called WaterGuard. WaterGuard is a system that is designed to go on top of the footer so that it will not get clogged by the mud that is next to the footer.
We also installed the ThermalWall vapor barrier so that moisture from the foundation wall would not evaporate into the basement. We seal the top and tape the joints so that no air can escape. The bottom of the vapor barrier is installed into the WaterGuard system so that moisture can drain away. Now the basement has a guarantee against water seepage from the foundation walls but also will have less moisture in the air. It is now ready to use.
