Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Chetek, WI Home Gets New Waterproofing System from DBS
This Chetek, WI home was built in 2000. Just this year, the homeowners had isssues with water intrusion in their basement, that caused damage to their drywall and plywood walls.
Our Design Specialist Rich Johnsen visited the home and provided a free, no-obligation estimate for the waterproofing work. It was determined that a drainage system and new sump pump were needed to protect the home after heavy rains. DBS Foreman Zach Jorenby and crew worked on the interior waterproofing job. The crew began by breaking out concrete to create a trench around the home's footing. Our WaterGuard® drain system was put into place and will effectively capture wall and floor seepage, directing it to a new SingleSafe™ sump pump. The crew finished the job by burying adding an IceGuard® outlet to prevent any winter time freezeups of the discharge line.
This homeowner now longer has to worry about basement flooding, and can count on a dry basement going forward.
