Leaky and Bowed Walls in Findlay, OH
Project Manager: Rick Blanchard
Customer: Don T.
Location: Findlay, OH 45840
The homeowner, Don, called into The Basement Doctor in March of 2017. He had two separate walls that needed to be addressed. According to Don, the walls were damp and leaking. This had been going on for quite some time, but he wasn’t sure why it was occurring. He wanted to locate the leak so that he wouldn’t pay the price during heavy rains. He was ready to get it taken care of, so he scheduled a free consultation with The Basement Doctor to find a solution.
The Basement Doctor sent Project Manager, Rick Blanchard, out for an evaluation of the walls. Rick’s objective was to locate the problem and propose a solution to fix all issues. In the midst of the inspection, Rick also noticed that the homeowner had a bowed wall. After the inspection was completed, Rick suggested: the waterguard system, Supersump system with Ultra Sump battery back up, BrightWall paneling, and power brace beams to address the bowing wall. The Waterguard system is a state of the art drainage channel that accepts water from wall leaks, and drains it properly. It never clogs, because it sits on top of the footing. The SuperSump sump pump system with an Ultra sump battery backup is designed to pump 2220 gallons of water per hour without any clogging. The power brace I beams straighten the bowing wall putting it into proper alignment. After discussing the options, Don agreed to move forward with the project. The Basement Doctor installation team ensured that the process was a successful. The homeowner was happy knowing that all his basement issues were fixed.
