An old waterproofing system (installed by another contractor) clogged over time, causing hydrostatic pressure to build during heavy rains, resulting in cracks along the basement wall. Intruding water collected in the basement allowing the wall cracks to grow larger over time. The homeowners needed an immediate, permanent fix that would address both of their concerns.
Tar Heel Basement Systems removed the previously failed drainage system and installed the BasementGutter Drainage System throughout the entire perimeter of the basement, sitting above the home’s footing to ensure there dirt and sediment would not clog the system. The team installed CrawlSeal along the basement walls, providing sightly relief to the paint chipped walls. The next step was addressing the wall failure by installing Basement Wall Anchors providing the wall with immediate stabilization.
