This basement in Merrillville, Indiana was getting seepage at the cove joint, the area where the floor and wall come together. She had been experiencing this problem for years and had just assumed a project like this would be to costly. She spoke with a neighbor that had a perimeter system installed by us, and they urged her to call Nova Basement Systems out to take a look at her concerns.
After a free evaluation we were able to show this homeowner that waterproofing doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg. She felt educated and understood why our approach to waterproofing is from the interior as opposed to the exterior. She was confident with our solution and was finally ready to fix this lingering problem once and for all.
First, we installed a SuperSump sump pump into her floor. This sump comes with a three year manufacturers warranty from the date of installation. It also comes with an air tight sump lid to keep odors and additional moisture from entering your living space, and from any objects that may get into the sump basin.
Finally we installed a full WaterGuard perimeter solution to capture and drain water from the exterior walls in her basement. This system then pushes water through a track to the sump pump, and the water then gets ejected through an Underground Downspout. The great news is that WaterGuard is accessible to the customer and can be cleaned and flushed when needed. Some exterior systems are unable to be cleaned unless you dig up the Earth around the home, which can be very costly.
