Basement Finished in Style

The Challenge

The basement of this home had a chronic water problem. A previous contractor had done a wimpy repair and another contractor was planning to dig a trench around the room to add a pump system to allow water that came in to be pumped out.

The Idea

Waterproof the project properly from the outside and finish the space properly. Regrade the ground to have a positive grade away from the home and fix the sprinklers.

The Solution

Repair the gutters, dig outside, and waterproof the foundations correctly. I am not a fan of letting water in then pumping it out.

The Details

Levco ended up leveling the floor and adding new flooring, We waterproofed the outside and finished the interior including remodeling a bathroom. Electrical improvements were also made. We also added plenty of insulation. We discovered that the previous basement finishing was a DIY project by a previous owner. The walls of the bathroom were not attached to the floor.
