Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Passing on a Dry Basement in Luxemburg, WI

Friday, February 9th, 2018 by Michael Collison


Homeowners in Luxemburg, WI are ready to take the next step in their life and move to a smaller home. With their children all grown up and with them in retirement, it made perfect sense. However, they are going to leave their home they lived in for 30 years to their children. Before starting that process they wanted to make sure it was in the best condition possible so their children wouldn't have to stress over trying to fix the home up. A major problem for the homeowners was an uncontrollable amount of water coming into their basement and occasional flooding. To make sure the problem is resolved properly, they called the experts at Sure-Dry.



After receiving the call, I put together the perfect solution for these homeowners needs. Our crew installed our TrenchDrain Pipe to their basement floor, wrapping it completely around their basement. This is used to accept any water on the floor and then redirect it to their sump pump. Our crew then installed our WaterGuard System which collects any water seeping through their concrete walls. Once the water enters the WaterGuard System, which rests under their floor slab, it will then drain it back to their sump pump to then discharge it out.

With a complete water removal in their basement, these homeowners are free to pass on their beloved home to the rest of their family to enjoy.
