These homeowners just purchased this second home several months ago. After living in their new home for a short period they realized that they had a water and humidity issue. More specifically, water was coming in at the wall-floor joints and a couple of cracks on the floor as well. Because of the water intrusion, they decided to contact Basement Systems of New York to see how we could help their home. This project in itself was unique because of the fact that their home has a step footing versus a traditional footing.
To take care of the water issue at hand we dug around the perimeter of their basement, as well through the center of it to create our trench as well as laterals. Once done we installed our FlowGuard waterproofing system and tied it into our TripleSafe sump pump. Before applying concrete on top of our system, we applied both the drain mat and CleanSpace to the walls. Finally, before turning the basement back over to the homeowners, we installed our SaniDry XP dehumidification system to keep the areas free of any excess moisture or humidity.
Since installing our patented products their basement has been dry, as well the environment both downstairs and upstairs has completely changed for the better. They now have a fully functional home that they do not have to worry about every single night when they go to bed.
