Waterproofing Case Studies: Basement Moisture Control in Linwood, NC

Monday, January 15th, 2018 by Nicole Valardi

Challenge

Steven, a realtor in Linwood, NC was searching online for someone who could resolve the moisture problems in a house he had on the market. During his search, he found Dry Pro and decided to give us a call. Our System Design Specialist, Kelley, went out to inspect the property and walk him through our repair process. 

During Kelley's inspection, he found very high moisture levels in the basement. He also noted that there was a discoloration on the brick walls that was caused by water intruding into the basement. Kelley designed a system to control the moisture in the basement. Once Steve agreed to Kelley's proposal, the Dry Pro crew started on the repair. 

Solution

Adam and the waterproofing crew started the project by installing 14ft of WaterGuard and CleanSpace along the wall that was experiencing the most water intrusion. They also installed a SuperSump Pump with drain system, an exit line and bubble pot.  

The CleanSpace Wall seals out any outside water or air from the crawlspace. WaterGuard is an almost invisible product that captures water and floor seepage before it enters the crawlspace floor. The SuperSump pump automatically pumps and channels water away from the foundation. The combination of these three products will eliminate any water from entering or standing in the basement.
