Waterproofing Case Studies: Flooded Unfinished Basement in Albemarle, NC

Monday, July 13th, 2020 by Ajile Weldon-Lively

Challenge

William's unfinished basement floods every time it rains. During the last rainfall, the entire basement flooded severely which caused William to search for home inspection deals on the internet. He wanted his basement evaluated and was interested in an estimate for an encapsulation. Brandon at Dry Pro went out to inspect the problem and discovered a major water issue that would need a drainage system for assistance. 

Solution

Dewey, Gerber, and Austin from our waterproofing repair crew began the project by first laying out our WaterGuard XL system around the walls and floors. Next, they installed a trench drain, Super SumpPump, and exit line to help evacuate groundwater caused by water intrusion. Lastly, they secured the WaterGuard liner with tape and caulk, and cleaned up the area. 

After the work was completed, William was very pleased to know that he had a fully protected basement, compromising his energy cost!
