Before & After

Keeping a Basement Dry, North Chelmsford, MA

These homeowners in North Chelmsford were tired of their basement having a wet, musty smell. They planned to finish a section of the basement area in the near future, and so knew they needed to solve their water and moisture problem first. Their old sump pump was functional, but sitting in an exposed pit of water, which allowed mold to grow and moisture to spread. 

Our team proposed and installed a complete waterproofing system that would allow them to have a dry basement. First, the walls were encapsulated with CleanSpace vapor barrier, which effectively captures all moisture leaking through the basement walls. Next, we added a perimeter drainage system called WaterGuard along the base of all the foundation walls. Any water entering the basement from the edges of the foundation would be caught by the WaterGuard tracks and directed to the sump pump basin. The TripleSafe system within the basin includes 3 sump pumps and an alarm system. This waterproofing system also comes with a battery back-up, in case the home ever loses power during a storm. 

To further help control moisture levels in the basement, the homeowners purchased a SaniDry dehumidifier, the most effective dehumidifier on the market. This is all backed up by our full warranty and our All Things Basementy network!

With this complete waterproofing system in place, they have peace of mind that their basement will stay dry all the time!
