After moving up from Brooklyn four years ago these homeowners thought all was well with their home, but after two major storms, they quickly realized that their home was vulnerable to water, both when it rained and snowed. Because of the headaches that they endured both during and after these two events, they said enough is enough and gave Basement Systems of New York a call to see how we could keep their home dry.
To take care of the water issues that they were dealing with we had to install several of our patented systems. We started by digging our trench around the perimeter of their basement. We as well installed two laterals on each side of their basement. These trenches would eventually be filled with gravel and perforated pipe. This piping system is the base for our patented waterproofing system, FlowGuard, which will be installed on the perimeter of the basement walls and will divert all water to our piping and then our sump pump.
Once our trench and laterals were created and filled we proceeded to apply our vapor barrier, CleanSpace to the entirety of their basement walls. By applying a vapor barrier to their basement walls, we were able to change the overall environment of their home.
After installing our vapor barrier, we dug for our discharge lines outside their home. Once established, we installed our TripleSafe sump pump with a battery backup.
Finally, we installed our BasementAire dehumidification system and attached our condensate pump to drain into our TripleSafe sump pump. This created a system that these homeowners could truly set and forget.
Since installing these systems these homeowners have not seen an ounce of water in their homes whether it be from rain or snow. They could not be any happier with how their project turned out, but more importantly that they do not have to worry about cleaning up their basement ever again as well as having peace of mind restored to them.
