These homeowners contacted Basement Systems of New York to see what could be done to take care of their basement to get it in tip-top shape before selling it. They knew with it having an old dirt floor that would get water consistently they would either need to take care of the issue before selling their home to create a value proposition for the buyer or take a large sum of money off. Because of this, they decided to be proactive and take care of the issues before selling their home. In doing so they can now guarantee to get the most return on their investment possible.
For us to take care of their water, foundation, and floor problems, we dug their floor four inches down, we then installed eight precast footings, all of which our SmartJack systems would sit on top of. Once this was completed we started to install our patented FlowGuard waterproofing system along the perimeter of the basement, which was then tied into our SuperSump plus. Finally, before laying our new concrete slab we installed our CleanSpace vapor barrier on their walls.
By installing our patented systems we able to address the major concerns that the current homeowner had for himself and his family while they continued to live in the home, but more importantly to them they were able to address obvious issues that they knew would stop them from being able to sell their home in the foreseeable future.
