Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Basement Waterproofing Repairs in Galesburg, ND

Monday, September 28th, 2020 by Kal Aldrich


When a home is built, the contractors designing it never meant for the basement to be a damp, musty, flooding space. But, as time and mother nature continue to bear down on your foundation, it is bound to leak sooner or later. Basement flooding is a problem that can be solved effectively, and because it is such a big investment, it is worth the time to learn what options will work best to keep the basement maintained as dry, usable space. 

Homeowners in Galesburg, ND had water leaking through the floors and walls of their home, causing their floor to rot away. They went on HomeAdvisor and came across our basement waterproofing and foundation repair photo galleries. They were confident that American Waterworks would be able to solve their problems, so they called our office line and scheduled a FREE Estimate. Our Design Specialist went to their home, examined their problems, and came up with a solution that would fit their needs, comfort level, and budget. They got all of their questions answered and felt confident with our products and warranties, so they went ahead with the project. 


Our Foreman and his production team started the project by breaking out the concrete, rotted floor with a jackhammer. In replacement, our crew applied gravel, river rock, and sand to the open space. Around the floor perimeter, our team installed our WaterGuard System, which serves as an underground drain, prevents water clogs, and collects water seepage from basement walls. In connection to the WaterGuard, our team installed our TripleSafe Sump Pump System, which is the best and most reliable sump pump that we provide for homeowners. It offers three levels of water protection and solves all three problems in one system. Lastly, our crew installed our CleanSpace Wall Vapor Barrier around the entire wall perimeter. Our CleanSpace is made to prevent humidity and mold build-up, cover any big holes or divots, and it gives the space a clean and neat appearance. To complete the project, our Foreman and his crew applied new concrete over the entire ground space, making sure the basement was much cleaner than when they found it. The homeowners were very happy with the repairs and could not believe the transformation!
