Adrienne C. in Detroit, Michigan purchased this duplex only one year ago, and with all the rain this summer, realized that water was seeping in through the block walls and at the base of the floor. The walls were very discolored and clearly water damaged. She wanted a permanent solution, so HomeSpec stepped in to help.
The wall panels not only cover the unsightly basement walls, but they insulate the basement and help direct water into the drainage system. The drainage system (also know as French drain) installs around the perimeter of the basement below the floor to capture water before it leaks into the basement. This then deposits the water into the sump pump, where the 3 levels of pumps will funnel any amount of water away from the foundation.
This system will keep the basement dry while also helping it look great – plus Adrienne was very thankful for the permanent fix!
