Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Basement Waterproofing Repairs in Canby, MN

Tuesday, November 10th, 2020 by Kal Aldrich


Basement flooding is a problem that can be solved quickly and since it is an investment, it is worth your time to learn which options will work best to keep your basement maintained as a dry, usable space. A basement flood can lead to extensive damage to finishing materials and stored items. Today's small leak can lead to serious flooding in the future.

A male homeowner in Canby, MN had water leaking from his basement walls, causing him to worry about flooding hazards, water damages, and moisture problems. He did some research and came across American Waterworks and our basement waterproofing products. He saw that we provide FREE Estimates, so he called our office line and schedule an inspection and estimate with our Design Specialist. Our Design Specialist drove to his home, carefully examined and diagnosed his problems, and came up with a safe solution that would solve his problems. The homeowner was confident in the solution and felt content with the products and their warranties, so he went ahead with the project and scheduled an installation date. 


Our Foreman and his production team began the project by introducing themselves to the homeowner and making sure he had no last-minute questions before the installation. Next, our team went to the basement and started repairs by cutting out the concrete floor perimeter, forming a trench. In the trench, our crew installed our WaterGuard Drainage System. Our WaterGuard is the most common waterproofing product that we provide for homeowners because it prevents water and mud clogs, it collects water seepage from basement walls, and it works efficiently with the sump pump. Then, our team installed our CleanSpace Wall System Vapor Barrier around the basement wall perimeter. The purpose of our CleanSpace is to prevent mold and humidity, act as an extra wall protectant, cover any holes or divots, and give the basement a neat and clean appearance. To finish the project, our Foreman and his crew did the final walkthrough with the homeowner and made sure he was satisfied with the repairs.
