Waterproofing A Home With A Concrete Block Foundation Before The Homeowners Finished Their Basement - Pine Island, NY

These homeowners contacted Basement Systems of New York to see how we could remedy the water problem that they have been dealing with for several years. Because of how wet 2021, they continued receiving water in their basement in the obvious spots that they always saw. They also saw their basement take on water on their back wall, something that they had never seen till now. Once this new water problem emerged, they said enough is enough and decided to take care of the issue at hand. 

To take care of the water issue plaguing this basement, we started by creating a trench around the entire perimeter of their basement with two laterals along the front and back of the basement to mitigate hydrostatic pressure. Once everything was dug out we started to lay our perforated pipe and cover it with gravel through the entirety of our trench and laterals. This piping will eventually tie into our sump pump and direct any water caught by our system out of the home.

Next, we drilled our weep holes on the bottom of their block foundation. These weep holes allow us to redirect water that is entering their home to our waterproofing system. After drilling our weep holes throughout the perimeter of their foundation, we installed our DryTrak and FlowGuard waterproofing system before applying concrete to the trench we created and returning the basement to its former glory before we started their project.

Since completing this project, these homeowners have not seen any water in their basement, as well they were able to finish their basement. More importantly, than anything to the peace of mind had been restored to them.
