Beth J. had purchased a home in Spokane, WA that had an exterior french drain system installed to try to solve her basement water issues. Turns out, this system did not address those water issues as anticipated. She contacted us because she wanted to find a permanent solution for her wet basement, but was also concerned about her cold, damp crawl space and crumbling, settling foundation. You could actually see daylight through the rocks in her foundation!!! There was a black plastic liner down, but was installed haphazardly in her crawl space.
Upon her free estimate with a Certified Basement Design Specialist, imagine her excitment to find out she could have a dry, healthy basement along with a conditioned crawl space, and a stablized foundation. We recommended installing a TripleSafe Complete Sump Pump System along with the patented non-clogging WaterGuard interior drainage system, which provides a limited warranty for the lifetime of structure, to give her the peace of mind she was looking for. To stabilize her foundation, we installed the proven, engineered SmartJack Reinforcement System providing her a limited warranty for 25 years. A vented crawl space can end up costing you a lot in utility bills and having a damp crawl space can lead to mold and rot. To protect Beth's home and increase the effeciency of her home, our specialist recommended sealing and insulating her crawl space using CleanSpace Crawl Space Vapor Barrier and TerraBlock Crawl Space Floor Insulation which is also warrantied from rips and tears for 25 years. The combination of these two products offer a puncture-resistant, completed dry space that Beth can now use for storage while protecting her home. She could finally have that complete protection she was looking for!
A special thanks to Foam Tech of Post Falls for providing the spray foam insulation for this project, putting an end to the cold transfer into the basement and crawl space. We also appreciate AdenBecks Electric for supplying her Basment System with power!
From the Premier Basement Systems family, Beth J. we hope you are enjoying the benefits of your dry, efficient, and healthy basement and crawl space!
