Most homeowners believe that exterior waterproofing is the best solution but lets break down the steps of exterior waterproofing. First your landscaping around the entire perimeter of your homes foundation needs to be dug out and dug down about 15 feet. A french drain system needs to be installed to collect water but what drain can collect water but not clog from stone or dirt? Each time this drain clogs, the entire landscaping needs to be ripped up again to reach this system to unclog the drain.
This basement was wet and had that nasty damp basement smell. Water was seeping up through the floor and the walls. The homeowner wanted a solution that would give them peace of mind when it came to their home and with a wet basement every time it rained, they were far from peace.
Interior Waterproofing: For this Red Bank basement we recommended a full perimeter system of WaterGuard to collect any water seepage from the ground and the wall. WaterGuard is installed above the foundations footing, which is out of the "mud-zone" so the system will not get clogged and prevent water flow. This system is connected to our TripleSafe Sump which is a three pump system that sits in a protective liner. The airtight lid prevents water evaporation and moisture. The lid also has an alarm system to alert the homeowner of any issues.
With our many years of experience we have found many basements damaged from flooding due to pump failure during a storm when the power goes out. We have a back- up battery that will allow your sump pump to continue working even if you lose power during a storm.
