Basement Systems of West Virginia Case Studies: Waterproofing a Large Commercial Building in Buckhannon, WV

Monday, April 20th, 2015 by Randy Shillingburg

Challenge

Residents and employees at a large, commercial building in Buckhannon, West Virginia, noticed strange odors inside the building, especially after periods of heavy rain.  Basement Systems of West Virginia was called in to investigate and to provide a remedy in this very large structure that is used for office space and apartments.

Solution

Basement Systems of West Virginia first investigated the problem.  We noticed standing water in the crawl space and basement of the building, especially during periods of heavy rain.  An adjacent stream often overflowed its banks, bringing water to within three feet of the building.  Basement Systems of West Virginia designed a comprehensive solution with drainage matting and CleanSpace to keep moisture from entering the crawl space, and WaterGuard was installed in the floor to remove water from the perimeter walls.  A series of the industry's best sump pumps were installed to remove water from the crawl space and basement, ridding the building of the source of the odors -- the excess moisture.
