This homeowner had contacted us about two and half years ago saying they thought they had a leak in their basement. Our Specialist then went out and evaluated their home, upon his evaluation he was able to confirm their thoughts about a plumbing leak, he as well mentioned to them that there were a couple of signs that concerned him about their being potentially a bigger water problem in the future. Two years later our Specialist received a call again from the homeowner that their basement was taking on an extreme amount of water due to the issues that our Specialist had pointed out during his previous evaluation. He was able to figure out that they had a lot of hydrostatic pressure pushing water up into their basement.
For us to fix the problem at hand for this homeowner to ensure that their home stays dry regardless of the season, as well as the amount of rain or snow they get we installed one of our patented waterproofing systems, which is comprised of 160 feet of FlowGuard, an under slab system with a lateral that spaned from the back part of their basement to our sump basin. Finally to make sure that all water caught by our waterproofing system would be directed out of the home we installed a SuperSump basin with approximately 220 feet of gravity discharged, which would run in front of their home to the front right-hand corner of the property where it would discharge into their pond.
Our client's concrete around their pool was suffering from multiple uneven surfaces. These uneven surfaces created a hazardous pool area for both kids and adults. Basement Systems of New York was called to level all the uneven surfaces that they had, we were able to restore the concrete around their pool with the help of PolyLevel. We injected PolyLevel foam beneath the concrete, which raised it back to the proper level and made it look brand new
Basement Systems of New York believes that having the right windows in your basement is a big factor in keeping your basement dry. Not only is it an improvement in an aesthetic way but more importantly, it is part of an entire system that will keep your basement dry all the time. In this case, we replaced a basement window with a beautiful window well.
This job was unique because the footing was above the floor so we needed to CleanSpace the walls so the water from the weepholes gets forced into our waterproofing system. This job required a Flowguard system to turn this once wet basement dry.
This job was unique because the footing was above the floor so we needed to install CleanSpace on the walls so the water from the weepholes would be forced into our waterproofing system. This job as well required a FlowGuard system to turn this once wet basement dry. Notice how their is no longer any water on the basement floor, and the walls also look nicer.
