Tuesday, January 12th, 2016 by Sarah Gozick

Challenge

A Staten Island, NY homeowner had water coming in through her basement walls. The leaks were constant and she could no longer ignore the problem. She wanted her basement to be a place for entertaining, escape, and relaxation but with the wet walls and high humidity it didn't feel like home. She called Quality 1st Basement Systems to waterproof her basement and make it inviting.

Solution

The Quality 1st Basement Systems crew removed the water damaged portion of the drywall. They installed half length EverLast basement walling. EverLast basement walling is made with waterproof materials and redirects water to a basement drain. What the homeowner loved about EverLast was its bright, modern look. EverLast is functional but also looks beautiful! The built in insulation will keep the basement warm and lower heating bills. On the floors, Quality 1st Basement Systems installed ThermalDry flooring in the color sandstone. ThermalDry has a raised peg design, lifting it from the cold concrete floor. It is made with inorganic materials that will never rot or grow dangerous mold.

The relative humidity in the basement was abnormally high, which made it easy for nasty mold to grow. Quality 1st Basement Systems installed a SaniDry dehumidifier to remove moisture from the air and keep the humidity low and safe. It also removes dust and impurities from the air, keeping it healthy and safe for allergies. Now this basement looks amazing! The floor is warm and comfortable and the walls are waterproof and beautiful. The homeowner loves her basement now, she says it is her favorite room in the house.
