Before open Sump pump

Foreman Derek Price led the Jamison team through the rigourous repair. The well area was very small and with the water main running through the middle of it made it even tougher. First they had to seal up a cracks in the foundation of the well area than apply the encapsulation system .
After that the Grate Sump sump pump was installed to pump water out of the old water well area. We also replace the very old open Sump pump on their other side of the basement to reduce smells and odors .

Before Sump pump

Project Manager Steven Custus came out to do a full Basement inspection and that resulted in a ( Closed) basement waterproofing drainage system that resolved all water related issues. The system included 126 ft. of a sub-floor (French drain ) rested in front of the foundation footer where water would routinely leak called ( Grate-Drain) . The GrateDrain system was placed around the full perimeter of the entire basement with clean-out ports for future inspection of the system . We also installed a moisture vapor barrier on the walls to protect the future finished basement from any wall leaks.

Since the basement was large and water seepage was significant, a Grate-Sump sump was installed which can handle 2400 gallons of water per hour yes 2400 per hour ! The water will be pump away from the foundation and the basement will stay dry .
