These homeowners contacted HomeSpec because they were suffering from a wet basement in their old Detroit home. They had made attempts to fix the drainage, but everything failed. Water was seeping through the block foundation walls after heavy rain, causing the paint on the walls to peel. The floors would also be damp. The basement was in bad shape and the homeowners didn't want to stress about any longer.
Our team solved this problem by completely waterproofing the basement with an interior drainage system, vapor barrier, dehumidifier, and two new sump pumps. The vapor barrier over the walls will prevent water vapor and moisture from entering the basement and instead direct it down to the drainage system. After the water drains into the drainage system, it'll be directed toward the sump pump and expelled away from the home, preventing water issues.
This commercial building in Detroit was suffering from an extremely wet basement, as you can see from the photos. The basement flooded after an old sump pump went out, so the owners called HomeSpec for help.
Project Manager Bobby Whitus came up with a repair plan that addresses all aspects of this problem. Foreman Jon Davis and his crew installed a WaterGuard Interior Drainage System connected to a TripleSafe Sump Pump. This system collects the water and deposits it into the sump pump, where there's 3 levels of pumps for triple the protection. This then pumps the water away from the foundation.
Our crew then installed a CleanSpace Vapor Barrier to seal the walls off from moisture, and instead directs it down into the drainage system.
These homeowners contacted HomeSpec because water was seeping into their finished basement. They had severe cracks and rod holes in their foundation which were the culprits.
The best thing to do is get a free inspection before finishing your basement to make sure no problems will pop up later on. Repairing the water and foundation issues first and foremost will save time and money in the future.
In order to protect this basement, our crew installed an interior drainage system to collect the water and drain it away from the foundation. We also repaired the cracks and rod holes, and then installed our CleanSpace vapor barrier over the walls. This helps direct water to the drainage system, and prevents water vapor from passing through your foundation.
