Rosemary from Caly called Woodford Bros., Inc. comlaining of water in her basement. She was renting the apartment and wanted to give the landlord a quote to fix the water issue. On Feb 2nd a Woodford Bros., Inc. Design specialist came up with a plan to fix the water and musty smell in the basement.
Our Desing Specialist explained that the water was seeping through their walls, floors, and joints between them. She informed them that their original waterproofing system seemed to be clogged. This could be fixed, but he warned them it probably would not be long-lasting. She then suggested a permanent solution, the WaterGuard system. Their was instant appeal to the fact that it was a non-clogging pipe system that does not rot. After doing more research on the products of Basement Systems, Rosemary decided that she wanted BrightWall panels to enhance the aesthetics of the dark, bare basement walls.
Dan from Skaneateles called us with Radon being his major concern. Dan had his home in Skaneateles tested and the Radon level was 5.6 so he know something had to be done. The homeowners contacted Woodford Bros., Inc. on December 13th, then on February 19th our design specialist Jonathan Bumpus went to Dan's house to give him a solution.
The Radon mitigation system was installed and Dan's problem has been fixed! Can the Basement Brothers help you?
