Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Basement Waterproofing in Danielson, CT

Friday, October 7th, 2016 by Danielle Lariviere

Challenge

This Danielson, CT homes basement was improperly insulated, and very uninviting. The walls were made from stone blocks and concrete. These building materials unfortunately were allowing water to seep through them, and caused water damage very easily. Mold was infesting both the floor and the walls. This homeowner knew this kind of problem would only get worse if they didn't do something about it. They gave us a call here at Connecticut Basement Systems to have our waterproofing experts turn their space from Basement to Beautiful! 

Solution

Our waterproofing professional Kryz Wilk did a great job transforming this cold, damp basement into a healthy, bright space. First he installed our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier. This product is mold resistant, and extremely durable. It protects the room against intrusive water leakage, mold spores, and keeps humidity from passing through. It will never chip, peel, or flake away from the concrete, like traditional paints and sealants would.

Next, we wanted to make sure that any water that did seep through the walls had a proper drainage system to go through. We installed our TrenchDrain Grated Drainage Pipe to prevent water from flowing in from the outer entry way. In this homeowners case, it was their hatchway that was a possible water entrance. After the water is flowed into the drain, it will be directed into our TripleSafe Sump Pump. This is an industry leading sump pump, and the only one of its kind. It pumps any water that comes in out of your home at an incredible force.

Finally, to fix the moisture problem this basement was facing, our SaniDry XP was installed. This dehumidifier works to keep humidity levels below 50%. Mold needs at least 50% or above to thrive, so with this product, it has a slim chance for survival. These four products will work together to ensure this basement stays dry and healthy. This homeowners basement is beautiful, bright and now can be used to the homeowners advantage!
