Photo Album: Two-Stage Basement Waterproofing: A Comprehensive Solution for a Dry Basement
Stephanie and Ron from Carnation, WA, were experiencing water intrusion in their basement/root cellar/storage area, as well as their crawl space. This was causing a musty odor in their home, and they wanted to find a permanent solution. Our specialist, Zachariah, visited the home and provided a free, thorough inspection and estimate. He recommended installing a Two-Stage Basement Waterproofing System, which consists of the following components:
DryTrak baseboard water control system: This system collects water at the base of the walls and directs it to a sump pump.
Sub floor drain line with feedlines: This system collects water under the floor and directs it to the sump pump as well.
Surface drain and SuperSump system with a powerful cast iron pump in an airtight basket: This system collects water from the surface of the basement and pumps it out of the home.
CleanSpace Wall System: This system is a water-resistant barrier that is installed on the walls of the basement to prevent water from seeping through.
Encapsulated crawl space using CleanSpace: This system seals off the crawl space from the outside elements, preventing moisture and pests from entering the home.
The Two-Stage Basement Waterproofing System is a comprehensive solution that protects your basement from water intrusion in two ways:
It collects water at the base of the walls and under the floor and directs it to a sump pump, which pumps it out of the home. This prevents the water from pooling in your basement and causing damage.
It creates a water-resistant barrier on the walls and floor of the basement to prevent water from seeping through. This is done by installing a CleanSpace Wall System and encapsulating the crawl space using CleanSpace. By combining these two approaches, the Two-Stage Basement Waterproofing System provides complete protection for your basement from water intrusion.
