Basement Finishing Case Studies: Stone Ridge

Sunday, June 10th, 2018 by David Sawransky

Challenge

This is an old farm house with a stone foundation and 4 very old wood windows. This basement gets wet if there is only a forecast of rain. The customer has been using the basement for the laundry and as a hobby/work shop. The cabinets were shot from the water problems and it was time to do something.

Solution

The firt thing that was done was the installation of WaterGuard waterproofing system with a TripleSafe sump system. A new Cement floor was poured over the existing broken cement floor. CleanSpace was attached to the walls and tucked into the WaterGuard Waterproofing system.

After the new floor was poured we came in and installed a new set factory made stairs with a new platform. We enclosed the platform and made an access cover also. We replaced 2 windows with the Everlast Insert windows and 2 with the Everlast Slider windows so if the customer wanted to they can remove the panes to help put things in the basement.

While doing that We set up the SaniDry Sedona to start the dehumidification process, the walls were sweating so bad it looked like someone was spraying them with a hose. While the Sedona was running the homeowner came down after the first 1/2 hour of the Sedona being on and said he felt a huge difference with humidity. He was skeptical at first until the first half hour.
