BQ Basement Systems Case Studies: Waterproofing in Abington, PA

Thursday, June 25th, 2020 by Maddy Varley

Challenge

Gabby and her mother Val have owned and lived in their Abington township home for almost 30 years. After years of a wet, moldy basement, Gabby knew it was time for her and her mother to call the experts. BQ Basement Systems went out and took a look at the house, finding a great deal of mold, and a basement in need of waterproofing. BQ also found an old non-functional sump pump with a poor discharge. The workers of BQ Basement wanted to prevent any more damage and prevent any future flooding, they got to work right away. These issues needed to be resolved immediately.

 

 

 

 

 

Solution

After having the opportunity to learn more about the suggested products, the homeowner wanted to move forward with the installation. The BQ team got straight to work installing the new permanent waterproofing system. The WaterGuard is a piping system that is specifically engineered to not clog while moving the water to the pump. The pump then moves the water out of the basement to the exterior of the home, solving the flooding issue.

 

The WaterGuard drainage system was installed around the perimeter of the basement to collect all water that enters in the home and directs that water to the sump pump. The CleanSpace system installed on the walls will seal the walls from leaking water, which prevents mold build-up. With some additional elbow grease and with some old fashion muscle, BQ replaced their old sump pump with a new TripleSafe sump pump. This basement is now safe and the homeowners have extra usable space!

 

Thanks to the BQ team this Abington homeowner has a waterproofed basement with a lifetime warranty.
