Water Seepage Through Doorway
Without proper drainage, water can seep into a home through doors and damage the interior. The TrenchLock drainage system was specifically designed to combat this problem. The TrenchLock is installed flush with the floor, to prevent tripping hazards. Its grated openings trap water as it comes into the house and redirects it to a sump pump system. However, in houses like this that have a radon problem, it is necessary to block the gases from leaking through the drain and into the home. The TrenchLock system includes balls of the right weight and size, which block gases from escaping through the holes in the drain when there is no water in the drain. When water flows, the balls float so water can drain.
Installation of Drainage Line
After water enters the TrenchLock, it needs to be directed to the sump pump system. Our team installed a feed line to the existing SuperSump, to ensure a dry basement!
Water Damaged Floor
This mold and rotting wood was the result of water seeping in through the basement door.
Newly Installed ThermalDry Flooring
Ceramic and vinyl basement tiles leave basement floors cold. They contain no thermal break between the concrete of your floor and your living space. Each ThermalDry Floor Tile rests on top of plastic pegs. By doing so, a thermal break is created underneath, which makes your floor's surface 8-10°F warmer than the cold concrete surface below.
Hardwood Floor Before Replacement
Regular hardwood can rot if the basement floods. Our ThermalDry tiles are designed to hold up during flooding, and will never crack or shatter. They are stain resistant, and their interlocking design assures that damaged tiles can be easily replaced.
