When Davis and Elkins College faced a seemingly insurmountable water problem in the basement of one of their buildings, they knew they needed outside help.  Basement Systems of West Virginia, the state's most experienced basement waterproofing company, was called in to investigate and to develop a solution that would result in minimal disruption to the college.


Basement Systems of West Virginia was called in to investigate.  We saw evidence of standing water in the basement, corrording equipment and coming dangerously close to equipment.  We installed our WaterGuard system with sump pumps to collect water from the foundation walls and to pump the water out of the building.  Once we were done with the job, the college had a dry basement for the first time in decades.
