Waterguard, a perimeter waterproofing system, was installed on top the foundation footing pre construction the rest of the home. By installing a waterproofing system during this phase of home building, home owners will ALWAYS have a dry basement or crawl space at a cheaper price than retrofit.
Waterproofing systems flow to the low point in the basement or crawl space to be mechanically removed by a sump pump. This connection line joins each half of the waterproofing system.
By installing inspection points periodically throughout the Waterguard system, home owners can clean out any dirt or gravel that might have accidentally got stuck in the drainage system.
Triple Safe sump pump is the highest caliber, most powerful sump pump on the market today. If your basement or crawl space has enough room for this type of sump pump to be installed, don't hesitate.
This black bee hive looking thing is the Triple Safe sump all wrapped up. This home now has a state-of-the-art waterproofing system that will keep the basement/crawl space area dry ALL the time.
Installing a proper waterproofing systems in your basement or crawl space is a good idea for every home in the northwest. As of late, TerraFirma has been working with various realtors and home builders to install waterproofing systems as part of the initial construction. The advantage of performing this work initially rather than as a retrofit is that there is no demolition involved. We don't have to dig out to create an install space for the sump pump or demo the basement slab to expose the foundation footing. Not to mention it is cheaper to do before hand for something every house will eventually need.
