Before, our customer was dealing with a leaky, wet basement. In order to solve this problem, we used our drainage system to effectively keep water out of the basement which you can see in the after photo. This resulted in a dryer basement for the homeowners to enjoy and not have to worry about in the future.
We installed an Egress window in Hamilton, Ohio. In these photos, you can see the original window and the Egress window that was installed. An Egress window provides an emergency exit out of the basement. Some communities require this type of window if there is a bedroom in the basement.
In these photos, you can see the before and after of having the EverLast Wall installed. Everlast walls will withstand moisture caused by plumbing leaks or high humidity and are a beautiful addition to the basement.

A Hamilton, Ohio homeowner was having problems with water seeping in through cracks in the wall and also some water seeping in at the floor in the basement. The homeowner called The Basement Doctor of Cincinnati and met with Chris, a Certified inspector, who recommended that the PowerBrace System, WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System, a SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System, and an UltraSump Battery Back-up System.
The PowerBrace System is steel I-Beams that are secured tight to the wall and anchored with brackets secured to the floor and floor joist to immediately stabilize a failing wall. The PowerBrace's unique design allows the system to be tightened over time potentially reversing wall failure. What this means is when the PowerBraces are installed the wall will be stabilized against further movement. It may need to be tightened a little bit over time before the wall failure is reversed.
WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System is our patented piping system that is installed along the basement walls. This piping system will intercept the water that is seeping into the basement and will drain it into the sump pump system to be pumped out of the basement.
The SuperSump Premier Sump Pump that Chris recommended is a high-end 1/3 hp Zoeller cast iron pump. It comes with the WaterWatch Alarm, the SuperLiner, and Airtight Lid. The UltraSump is a battery back-up pump that automatically comes on during primary pump or power failure.
We installed a CleanSpace Encapsulation System along with CleanSpace Vent Covers, SilverGlo Crawl Space Insulation and RimTight Rim Joist Insulation for a homeowner in Hamilton, Ohio.
The Liner of the CleanSpace Encapsulation System is a bright white 20-mil-thick liner, similar to a pool liner that is used to provide a vapor-proof barrier between the ground below and the crawl space. The CleanSpace Vent Covers also help to seal the crawl space.
SilverGlo Crawl Space Insulation is graphite infused rigid insulation. The shiny side of the insulation reflects heat back into the crawl space. This helps to keep the floors warmer in the winter.
RimTight Rim Joist Insulation insulates the rim joist area of the home. The rim joist is the board just above the foundation at the perimeter of your flooring system above the crawl space. When this is not properly insulated cold air leaks into the crawl space in the winter making the home harder to heat and the floors cold. In the summer, this causes condensation and humidity in the crawl space and in the home above making the environment uncomfortable.
With the CleanSpace Encapsulation System, SilverGlo and Rim Joist Insulation the homeowner will enjoy having lower heating and cooling costs and a more comfortable environment.
A Hamilton, Ohio homeowner was having problems with water seeping into the basement walls. He met with Walt, a Certified Inspector, who recommended WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System, CleanSpace Wall System, asuperSump Premier Sump Pump system, and a Window WellDuct to resolve this problem.
CleanSpace Wall System is a white plastic liner that covers the walls of the basement. It is our most economical way to cover walls and stop water vapor from penetrating the walls. The white color makes the basement look clean and bright.
WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System is a piping system used to intercept water that seeps into the basement and drains it into a drainage system, such as the SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System.
The SuperSump is a pump system with a 1/3 hp pump, a WaterWatch Alarm, the SuperLiner, and a special Airtight Lid. The SuperSump will pump the water out of the basement.
A Window WellDuct establishes a drain from the window well to the drain system, such as our WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System.
As you can see all of these systems work together making the basement a place that the homeowner will be able to use for many years to come.
