Safe, Warm and Dry Basement in Denver, CO

< Back to Case Studies

Challenge

Louise has lived in her house that was built in the 1960’s for three decades and was ready to sell. However, there were repairs that needed to be done to the house before she could do so. Isaac from Peak Structural went out and took a look at the house and found that three of the four basement walls were bowing and that there was water coming through cracks in the wall. The window wells in the basement were also old and rusted and some downspouuts were draining roof water next to the foundation. Isaac also found an old non-functional sump pump with a poor discharge. These issues needed to be resolved immediately.

Solution

The Peak Structural Crew had their work laid out for them and began working on the basement right away. The walls were permanently stabilized and straightened, the rusty window wells were replaced and the roof water was diverted away from the foundation. The cracks in the foundation were sealed and the old sump pump was replaced with a new cast iron pump with proper discharge. The products that were prescribed for these repairs consisted of Geo-lock Wall Anchors, Sentry Seal, Epoxy Injection/paste, Zoeller M53 sump pump with buried discharge, and all downspouts were buried with the replacement of window wells with new wells. With these products in place the basement is now safe, warm, and dry with more natural light.

Louise and her family are extremely happy; In a review her daughter wrote “They did a great job straightening our walls, sealing and waterproofing our basement, and getting new window wells. We are so happy and grateful!” Louise can now sell her house with confidence and give the next home owner a nationally backed warranty.
