This homeowner in Caroline, Alberta encounters issues with water leaking in through the foundation walls around the perimeter of their basement during heavy rainfall as well as the cold joint where the wall and floor meet. Wanting to eliminate the water issues in the basement and get a permanent solution for their home, they contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.
A System Design Specialist was able to assess the situation and provide the homeowners with a FREE, no obligation quote on upgrading their sump pump. Our Production Team was then able to then come to the home to install our CactusBoard basement footing foundation wall drain system. Forming a space between the edge of the basement floor and the basement wall, and across the footing, allowing water from the perimeter and the walls system to drain into the stone aggregate under the floor slab. We were also able to remove the old sump pump, replacing it with our SuperSump® sump pump system.
