This homeowner in Lethbridge, Alberta encounters issues with water leaking in through the cracks in the foundation walls in their basement during heavy rainfall. Wanting to eliminate the water issues in the basement with a proven solution, they contacted the foundation repair and waterproofing experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.
A System Design Specialist was able to visit the home to assess the situation and provide the homeowners with a FREE, no obligation quote designed specific to address all of the homeowners concerns. Our Production Team was then able to then come to the home to install a ThermalDry® Radiant Wall System which protects the basement from moisture and water that passes through concrete foundation walls. This product serves as both a vapor barrier and also as a way to redirect water leaking through the basement walls to the 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 to drain into the stone aggregate under the floor slab and then into to the SuperSump® sump pump system. A full-featured system, SuperSump® includes the best components available including a top-rated 1/3HP Zoeller® pump is designed for reliability & high-volume pumping.
