Basement Waterproofing in Granville, IA

Roger and Lisa F. are proud homeowners in Granville, IA but their basement had become a nonfunctional space due to a surplus of moisture seeping in. The basement had developed into a musty and damp area they felt wasn’t a healthy enough environment to be used. However, they wanted to be able to utilize the space for living, storage, and as a playroom for their grandchildren. Roger and Lisa were familiar with our reputation of wet basement repair, and they were thrilled with the solutions we offered.

To begin the basement project, our System design Specialist Jeff McCormick arrived at the Granville, IA home to perform a thorough inspection. Roger and Lisa opted to have Thrasher install a combination of our basement waterproofing products to guarantee the space stays dry year-round. Our team began by installing our WaterGuard interior drainage system around the full perimeter of the basement. CleanSpace waterproof barrier was then applied to all the walls to prevent any moisture from seeping through the cracks. To discharge the collected water outside, two TripleSafe sump pump systems were installed. Lastly, the team installed our SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier to prevent any mold growth, eliminate odors, and to keep humidity levels under control.

Roger and Lisa were ecstatic with the outcome of the project. They couldn’t believe the effectiveness and efficiency of the waterproofing solutions we offer. Thrasher was able to transform their unusable basement into a highly functional space for them and their family.
