A Cold Springs, Kentucky homeowner was having problems with a bowing wall that was also seeping water into the basement. Austin, a Certified Inspector, recommended having PowerBraces installed to stabilize the wall. A BrightWall Paneling System to cover the walls and will also direct water down into the WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System. WaterGuard is a piping system that will intercept the water that is seeping into the basement and will drain it out of the basement through a drainage system, such as a TripleSafe Sump Pump System.
The PowerBrace System will stabilize the wall from settling and can be adjusted to potentially straighten the wall over time. The BrightWall really brightens up the basement and also keep the water from penetrating into the living space. The TripleSafe Sump pump system consists of a three pump system. A primary pump, and a secondary pump that would automatically turn on if the primary pump fails or it becomes overwhelmed. If the pump becomes overwhelmed both pumps will run together and can pump 6200 gallons of water per hour. The third pump is the battery back-up pump and will automatically turn on if there is a power failure.
BrightWall Paneling System is sheets of plastic paneling used to cover walls, keep water vapor from penetrating into the living space and drains any wall leaks down into the drainage system below. The Bright white color of the BrightWall really brightens up the basement.
