Island Basement Systems Case Studies: Squamish basement waterproofing

Monday, March 1st, 2021 by Chris Schmidt


This basement was plagued with constrant flooding. Squamish, much like a lot of the Island, receives verry heavy rain falls. These sudden surges were overwhelming the perimeter drain system resulting in a flooded basement. And a lack of moisture barrier / ground seal under the concrete basement floor was resulting in dampness wicking up, resulting in mouldy smells, rotted framing, condensation etc.




Our solution was for a full perimeter WaterGuard system, the ThermalDry sub-floor system, drainage membranes, thermal bridging protection, and our TripleSafe sump system. This allows us to provide the homeowner a guaranteed dry basement with redundancy built into the de-watering system.

Combined with a high R-value insulation system, an HRV (heat recovery ventilator), and heat pump, all installed by the owner, this basement is ready for anything.

Healthy, energy efficient, dry, and excellent indoor air quality.
