Basement Water Problems in Carrington

Sunday, July 26th, 2015 by Ryan Anderson


The homeowner of this Carrington, Nd called Innovative Basement Authority because they needed extra storage space because of a growing family. The basement had 1/2” to 1” of standing water on the floor when there was a hard rain.  Also, because of hydrostatic pressure and age a portion of the floor had buckled and deteriorated to the point it needed to be replaced.  There were health concerns because of the standing water, which caused mold and odors in the basement. The homeowner wanted a solution that would keep their basement dry year round so it could be used as storage.


Before calling Innovative the homeowner contacted several other contracts who suggested that excavate around the exterior of their home and install drain tile, and also overlay a thin layer of concrete on their existing floor.  When our specialist arrived he suggested we use BasementGutter on the inside of the home to control the water problem. Also, it was also decided to demolish the existing floor and lay down new concrete. The job was very labor intensive, but our crew got the job done quickly and efficiently. The homeowner was very pleased, saying, “Absolutely amazing how hard your foreman and crew work. They were so efficient and neat. Turned out better than expected!”
