EM wanted to finish a family room in the basement and didn't want to worry about water ruining the finishes in the basement. There was no water coming into the home based on the existing foundation. After numerous times of water filling up EM's basement, he realized it was the downspouts outside of the basement window in his home.
For this project, we were able to install a new PolyWell window well, which would help prevent standing water from getting into the basement of this home. The next step was burying the gutters' downspouts 10' away from the house. Doing this will force water out through the grates 10' from the home. These solutions will help keep EM's basement dry.
Homeowners Cheri and Doug kept getting water in their basement. They called Midwest, worried that the water would start creeping into other parts of their home. Doug was a little skeptical, but once we sent System Design Specialist, Kevin French, to their home to look at the basement and then explained exactly how we do things and why we do it, his mind was at ease.
Kevin found a small portion of a wall in the cellar of their basement leaking badly. After developing a plan, he sent the install team out to work their magic. We ended up installing WaterGuard on the wall that was leaking. WaterGuard is a drainage system designed to capture water seepage through walls. It's nearly invisible and essentially makes sure that water never reaches your basement floor. In addition, we ran a lateral line from the WaterGuard to the sump pump for proper drainage.
Cheri and Doug now have a water-free basement! They were so happy they chose Midwest Foundation Repair to give them an in-depth inspection and solve their problem at the same time.
