Northern Basement Systems Case Studies: Constant Water in Lyme, New Hampshire Basement

Friday, May 25th, 2018 by Chris Fortier

Challenge

The homeowners in Lyme, New Hampshire was fed up with a water issue in the basement.  They purchased the home three years ago and for three years water had seeped into the basement.  The water would start to come into the basement around spring time and wouldn't even start to dry out until August.  This made it a huge hassle for them.  They couldn't even use the big basement space for storage with out having things on raised platforms.   

Solution

Tired of not being able to use their space they contacted Matt Clark's Northern Basement [email protected]  Matt sent out one of his System Design Specialist for the customers FREE ESTIMATE.  After doing the inspection the conclusion was made the best way to keep the customers basement permanently dry was to install a few different products.  First Northern Basement Systems installed a CleanSpace Wall System.   The CleanSpace Wall System uses a thick (20mil) white poly sheet material to completely cover basement foundation walls. CleanSpace is installed by fastening the material to the rim joist atop the foundation wall, and by installing press-fit plastic fasteners into the masonry.  As part of your waterproofing system, it creates an effective moisture and vapor barrier. The wall covering forces all wall seepage and moisture to flow into your perimeter drain system. The white poly surface eliminates the need to paint basement walls, providing a bright, stain-resistant finish that never needs repainting or maintenance.  Next, WaterGuard was installed around the perimeter of the basement to collect any water seepage from the wall to the WaterGuard.  Finally a SuperSump Plus was installed to pump out any water in the WaterGuard.  The SuperSump will take all of the water out of the basement and pump it away from the house down a discharge line.  The homeowner now can finally enjoy a nice dry basement.
