Here is an example of older, non sealed sump pump system and its replacement with the triple safe system and a SaniDry dehumidification system.  The older system had a smaller sump basket, and less inlets supplying water to one pump. The new system has a much larger sump basket, 3 pumps, and a state of the art battery back up system.

We get asked all of the time, Do I need to remove all of the drywall, or can I cut a section out?  And, when I cut a section out how do I get it replaced.  Here is and example of cutting 32 inches of drywall out, and when the waterproofing job is completed, replacing the removed section of wall with our revolutionary ZenWall systems and trim.

This was a home that had been sitting on the market for quite some time due to its foundation issues. The home was beautiful other than the bowing and cracking in the unfinished basement walls. PowerBraces were installed to stabilize the failing walls. PowerBraces can be tightened over time, potentially returning the wall to it's original straight state.

I purchased my house this Spring. I am working with NFC. I need an estimate on a dirt space in my basement. I am thinking that I need a Plastic Barrier down on that part of the basement, but you all are the experts. It is currently behind a wood wall with a door. It is under my kitchen. You can either email me or call. THANK YOU
