Most homeowners are tired of their unsightly downspouts. Every time they need to mow, they have to be taken off and put back. Some times in storms, they can blow away (when you need them most)! So, what can a person do? They can upgrade to underground downspouts!
Our underground downspouts systems are designed to take the gutter water away from the foundation without having the look of the downspout extensions. The water from the roof is then designed to saturate into the soil via our drywell boxes. Depending on the soil and amount of rainfall, the grated lids of the drywell box allow for overflow. And, they're perfect for maintenance when you get leaves and debris in them.

This customer was experiencing seepage in his newly purchased home. He called us in to take a look at it, and to design a solution that would be best for his home.
We installed a perimeter of WaterGuard and EmeShield in this Winona Lake, Indiana basement. The walkout basement would allow seepage in near the doors. The EmeShield is designed to flash water into the WaterGuard system, and it then will get pushed to the sump pump.
EmeShield is a 90-mil wall liner designed to help reduce moisture and/or flash water from the foundation walls into a waterproofing system. The seams are over-lapped, sealed, and taped. EmeShield is held into place using fasteners to the foundation walls.
