A homeowner in Morrow had a tilting wall in his home and called The Basement Doctor for a solution to this problem. An appointment was scheduled with our Certified Inspector, Roger.
Roger met with the homeowner and recommended PowerBraces to solve this problem. A PowerBrace is a patented, steel I-Beam coated with zinc, to resist rust, and is designed to stabilize walls that are tilting or bowing. These PowerBraces can be tightened and can potentially straighten the wall over time! PowerBraces are installed without having to excavate your outside yard and with minimal disruption to the inside area. With the PowerBraces installed, the wall is now stable, with no concerns of any further movement of the wall.
Jeff, a homeowner in Maineville, Ohio discovered water seeping into his crawlspace and some of the insulation was starting to fall down. He called The Basement Doctor for a solution to this problem.
An appointment was scheduled with one of our Certified Inspectors to help him find a solution to this problem. The Certified Inspector recommended A SmartSump, CleanSpace Encapsulation system, and a SaniDry dehumidifier.
The SmartSump pump system is designed especially for crawlspaces and includes an alarm that will sound if there is a pump or power failure. CleanSpace encapsulation system is made out of a heavy plastic similar to a pool liner and is attached to the floor and walls of the crawlspace. The Sanidry is a dehumidifier that will keep the humidity in the crawlspace low, preventing mold growth, and musty smells that can come from a damp crawlspace. Together, these products will give the homeowner a healthier, more comfortable home.
A homeowner in Kings Mill, Ohio was having problems with water seeping into a partially finished basement. We installed a TripleSump Pump System, BrightWall Paneling System, WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System, and a SaniDry System. These systems will keep the water from seeping into the basement and keep the humidity low. These pictures show before the install, during the install of the WaterGuard and the finished install of WaterGuard and TripleSafe Sump Pump System.
A South Lebanon, Ohio homeowner was insulating his basement when he noticed water seeping into the basement at the floor. We installed WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System along with a SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System to resolve the water problem he was having in the basement. The WaterGuard will intercept the water that is seeping in and then it will be drained into the SuperSump and be drained out of the basement. He will be able to continue his insulating project without further concern that the insulation would be damaged by water seepage.
A Springboro, Ohio homeowner was concerned about what could happen if the primary sump pump isn't working in the basement. A power failure or primary sump pump failure could happen while the homeowner was away and the basement could possibly get flooded with water. An UltraSump Battery Back-up System is the answer to that problem. If the primary pump does not run due to pump failure or power outages the UltraSump Battery Back-up Pump will automatically turn on and run on battery power. This will give the homeowner extra time to be able to resolve the primary sump pump problem before damage can occur due to a flooded basement.
An Oregonia, Ohio homeowner has a home built in the 1920s with block walls and there is a sump pump that has already been installed. The homeowner needed help with the problem with some bowing walls and called The Basement Doctor of Cincinnati. We installed PowerBraces to the bowing walls. The PowerBraces are steel I-Beams secured tightly against the bowing wall and secured with brackets attached to the floor joists and walls. These PowerBraces immediately stabilize the wall and are designed to be tightened over time to potentially reverse the wall failure.
The walls of this basement also look to have some moisture that seeps in at times and has some dark marks along the walls. A product that could be considered to be installed in this basement would be a BrightWall Paneling System, a WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System, and a SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System and a SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier.
BrightWall covers the walls, giving the basement a clean, semi-finished look and also drains any wall leaks down into the WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System. WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing system is a piping system installed along the foundation walls to intercept water that is seeping into the basement. The water is then pumped into the sump pump system, such as the SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System, to be pumped out of the basement.
The SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System is a high-end 1/3 hp Zoeller cast iron pump with a mechanical float switch. Also includes the WaterWatch Alarm that sounds an alarm if water reaches the point that the pump should have turned on, or during a power failure. This will alert the homeowner to a problem before damage occurs. It is also available with an UltraSump Battery Back-up System. The Ultra Sump will automatically turn on during a pump or power failure and comes with a maintenance free battery and charging station.
The SaniDry Sedona filters and dries the air keeping the humidity low. Having low humidity is important to have a more comfortable environment in the whole home. Whatever air is in the basement is also upstairs in the living space. High humidity is uncomfortable in the summer especially and encourages mold and musty odors.
Now that the homeowner has chosen a solution to the bowing walls that was solved with PowerBraces, the homeowner has peace of mind that the foundation is safe from further movement and over time may be able to straighten the wall. The homeowner could decide at a later date to semi-finish the basement with a BrightWall Paneling System or WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System, and maybe upgrade the sump pump, this which would create a space that the homeowner could use for storage and possibly extra living space.
A Mason, Ohio homeowner was having problems with water seeping into the unfinished basement. The foundation is block and a sump pump has not been installed. He met with Donny, a Certified Inspector who recommended that WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System, a SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System, and an UltraSump Battery Back-up System is installed to resolve this problem.
WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System is our patented piping system that is installed along the foundation walls. The WaterGuard intercepts the water that is seeping in and then drains it into a sump pump system, such as the SuperSump, to be pumped out of the basement.
The SuperSump is a high-end 1/3 hp Zoeller cast iron pump that can pump up to 2,650 gallons of water per hour out of the basement. It includes the WaterWatch Alarm, the SuperLiner, and the Airtight Lid. The WaterWatch Alarm sounds when the water reaches the point that the pump should have turned on. This will alert the homeowner to a problem that needs to be resolved before damage can occur. The SuperLiner has 96 holes in it so that water from under the floor can also drain into the liner to be pumped out of the basement. The Airtight Lid keeps moisture from evaporating back into the basement, keeps out bugs and odors and keeps objects from falling into the liner.
The UltraSump Battery Back-up System will automatically turn on during primary pump or power failure. It will run on battery power and comes with its own battery and charging station.
A Franklin, Ohio homeowner was having problems with standing water in the back of the crawl space of the home. We installed a SmartSump Crawl Space Drainage System.
The SmartSump is a pumping system made especially for crawl spaces. It has a WaterWatch Alarm that will sound an alarm if there is water from plumbing leaking into the crawl space. This is a nice feature to have since a lot of homeowners do not go into the crawl space that often and may not realize there is a plumbing leak until receiving a high water bill. The SmartSump has an Airtight Lid that will let water seep down into the liner but will not allow the water to come back into the crawl space.
Another product to be considered for the crawl space area is the CleanSpace Encapsulation System. CleanSpace is a plastic liner, similar to a pool liner, that is attached to the floor and walls of the crawl space to provide a mold and vapor-proof barrier between the ground and the home.
A Mason, Ohio homeowner was having problems with water seeping into the basement. The home is about 35 years old with poured foundation walls and the basement currently had a sump pump installed. The homeowner was concerned about the water intrusion and called The Basement Doctor of Cincinnati for help to resolve this problem.
The homeowner met with Walt, a Certified Inspector, who recommended that the WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System and the SuperSump Premier Sump Pump system is installed to resolve the problems the homeowner was having in the basement.
WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System is our patented piping system that is installed along the perimeter of the foundation walls. The WaterGuard piping will intercept the water that is seeping into the basement and drain it into the sump pump to be pumped out of the basement and away from the home. In the photo, you can see the WaterGuard piping has been installed under the floor, leaving only a small wall flange exposed.
The SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System is a high-end 1/3 Zoeller Sump Pump System. The SuperSump includes the WaterWatch Alarm, the SuperLiner, and Airtight Lid. The SuperSump can pump up to 2,650 gallons of water per hour out of the basement.
Another product to be considered for this home would be the BrightWall Paneling System. BrightWall Panels are sheets of plastic paneling that cover the walls and also drain wall leaks down into the WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System. The bright white color of the BrightWall reflects natural light and gives the basement a semi-finished look.
These products working together to intercept the water and then pump it out of the basement will give the homeowner a dry basement for life that they can use for storage, extra living space or recreation without worries of water intrusion.
A homeowner in Franklin, Ohio was having problems with water seeping into the basement. We installed WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System to resolve this problem for the homeowner.
WaterGuard is a piping system that is installed under the floor around the perimeter of the foundation walls to intercept water that seeps into the basement. The water is then drained into the sump pump system to be pumped out of the basement and away from the home.
A newer homeowner was concerned about some water that was seeping into the finished basement. The homeowner met with Walt, a Certified Inspector, who recommended that a WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System, a TripleSafe Sump Pump System and a SaniDry Sedona is installed to resolve the problems they were having in the basement.
WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System is used to intercept the water that seeps into the basement and then pumps is out of the basement with the use of a sump pump.
The TripleSafe Sump Pump System as the name states is a three pump system. The first pump will do the majority of the pumping. If it would fail or become overwhelmed, the second pump will also run, giving the first pump a "turbo boost". These pumps working together can pump up to 6,250 gallons of water per hour out of the basement. The figure eight shaped liner holds all three pumps so that it doesn't take up much room in the basement. The TripleSafe also includes the WaterWatch Alarm, Airtight Floor drain, and knockouts to drain a dehumidifier directly into the TripleSafe.
The SaniDry Sedona is used to dry and filter the air. The SaniDry maintains the proper humidity level in your home which helps to protect against mold and musty odors. The special filters in the SaniDry filter the air and remove mold spores, dust mite droppings and other particulates from the air. This makes your home healthier and more comfortable.
