This basement was used to store important items to a business. They didn’t know that it would all be destroyed by a water leak costing them tons of money. We came in and installed drain matting to channel the water, SilverGlo wall which acts as a vapor barrier and insulator, a perimeter drains to collect the water and a sump pump to collect the water and discharge it out of the basement and a usable storage space.
Our crew came over and help finish this space with waterproof Thermaldry Elite Flooring and a Waterproofing system. The results speak for themselves! You get a good-looking space that is also protected from any ground water damage! That’s a win-win in our book!
This customer needed a trench drain in front of his garage, the before picture shows what it looked like after the concrete was chipped away, the picture doesn’t show that under reviled a broken French drain that was supposed to be working as their drainage system. The after photo shows the trench drain laid in place before concrete was poured around it. Even not all the way finished the space already looks better! Once they pour the concrete the crew will make sure it is smoothed out and even for a nice finished look!
This customer had a finished basement that was used for kids living space, but without the proper waterproofing system in place they started to get water seepage and leaks down in the kids’ bedrooms! destroying their stuff and leaving it an unsafe place to dwell in. Our team came out and put in a full Watergaurd system and put in our Thermaldry Wall system which will help reflect heat and make the room much warmer for the kids as well. This basement is now warm and dry!
This customer was wanting a quick solution to the water coming into the basement so they could finish it. Not only did we solve the water issue by installing our Waterguard system in just two days but we also helped get them on the right track to finishing it by putting in our Thermaldry wall system and our Thermaldry floor matting. These products help to waterproof and insulate the walls and floor, making the basement perfectly prepped for finishing.
Note: the floor matting is not pictured in the after photo since it was done at a later time.

Heavy equipment is brought in to dig out the entire perimeter of the basement. New drain lines are installed, and sometimes a waterproof coating is applied to foundation walls. This waterproofing strategy is expensive and often damages lawn and garden areas. Exterior drains are prone to clogging with silt and roots over time.
This drain line is installed underneath the basement floor, just inside the foundation walls. The hidden drainage system brings water to a sump pit, where a sump pump automatically pumps it outside. Also known as a French Drain, this system is not prone to clogging; it’s reliable and easy to service.
A hollow plastic baseboard is installed along the base of basement walls to form a drainage channel that directs water to a sump pump system. A baseboard-type drainage system is sometimes recommended when the basement slab is too thin to accommodate a French Drain.
This waterproofing technique involves "painting" basement walls and floors with a waterproof, cement-based coating that's supposed to seal out moisture. Even when applied correctly, this thin membrane usually fails in response to prolonged hydrostatic pressure from outside the foundation.
