Dry Guys Basement Systems Case Studies: Waterproofing in Vineland New Jersey 08360

Friday, September 16th, 2016 by Jesse Cecola

Challenge

This 2 story Vineland, NJ home was built in 1973 and is about 1000 sq. ft. It has a finished basement that suffers from a seepage problem through the cinderblock foundation of the property during storms. On average, the basement would accumulate about 2 inches per storm. When the home was built, they had put in an outside drainage system, but over time, that system had failed. This problem is quite common, but the tricky part here is that there are large, expensive floor tiles that could obstruct the Dry Guys team from properly waterproofing this home. In addition, this basement has multiple tight spaces and an underground weeping water system that made the waterproofing process even more of a challenge. There are also signs of mold that can be seen on the floor joists. If this basement is left without a water drainage system, not only would the finished basement be destroyed from water damage, but mold would continue to grow and contaminate the basement - making it unsafe to live in.

Solution

This is a perfect example of why a previous customer recommended Dry Guys. The homeowner had heard of our reputation, and when Dave Davis, our System Designer, went to the property, he knew just the solution to help, and the homeowner signed an agreement with our team.

These expensive floor tiles (pictured) were carefully removed by our foreman, Jason Bowe, and the basement was fully waterproofed with our patented WaterGuard drainage system and a TripleSafe Sump Pump System was installed to prevent flooding and further damage to the homeowner’s basement. The mold was scrubbed with a surfactant and sprayed with an anti-fungicide. To prevent the possibility of mold growth, a SaniDry dehumidifier was installed to keep the overall humidity levels down- not just in the basement, but in the whole house. The Dry Guys Team's commitment and attention to detail will guarantee that this basement will stay dry and mold free.
