    Muddy Basement in Lyme, New Hampshire

    Every spring the homeowner in Lyme, New Hampshire would get water in their basement and it wouldn't start to go away until August.  This made using the basement for anything a big inconvenience.  Tired of not being able to use their space they contacted Matt Clark's Northern Basement Systems. 

     Matt sent out 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.
