Any water that comes into the drainage system in the basement would be flushed away from the house and foundation. The piping seen in the photo was buried before the job was done.
Waterguard was installed around the perimeter of the basement. Waterguard collects water that seeps through basement walls and drains it out to the sump pump. New concrete was poured over the Waterguard before the job was done.
When water gets into your basement, the sump pump is what protects you from a flood that could cause expensive property damage. Our TripleSafe sump pump provides the ultimate protection for homeowners who have had issues with water in their basement.
What our waterproof basement solution looks like once we're done. The white liner under the window is our VaporLoc Wall Barrier. Our VaporLoc Wall Barrier holds back to water vapor passing through your foundation walls and directs it to your sump pump. With anti-microbial protection built right in, no mold or mildew will grow on the walls!
It's common for homeowners to turn their basement into a bedroom, but in the Pacific Northwest, it's important to make sure that your basement is waterproof and free from water damage if you plan on having someone living in the room.
The homeowners of this lovely house in University Place, WA knew that living in the northwest means the possibility of water intrusion in their basement. Before they moved someone into the basement, they called TerraFirma to see what would need to be done to properly waterproof the home.
After carefully evaluating the basement, our System Design Specialist sat down with the homeowners and recommended that we install our TripleSafe Sump Pump, a VaporLoc Elite Wall Barrier, and a Waterguard drainage system. All three of these products work together to ensure that the basement won't suffer from moisture damage or have any seasonal flooding.
With a plan in place, our crew went to work and waterproofed the entire basement within a day.
