Egress Window Basement Waterproofing
Egress windows are a nice touch when you are considering finishing your basement. They allow much more daylight and fresh air into your basement than standard basement windows. These basement windows open up the room making the space feel larger and less like a small, dark basement room. Not only are egress windows aesthetically pleasing but they add safety to your basement, allowing for a quick exit in case of an emergency. All these factors add up to make your home more more valuable.
When egress basement windows are installed, a window well is dug to allow daylight and air in and to provide an exit if need be. This basement window well is then surrounded by 3/4 inch clean, free-draining river rock down to the footing of the foundation. Water drains right onto the foundation. If your basement contractor hasn’t recommended a basement waterproofing system installation when installing an egress window, then you are being set up for a leaking basement.
At Quality Foundation Repair, we would not install anything that could create more problems for you down the road. We tie our egress window installations into existing foundation perimeter drains when available. We also can install pumps to keep your foundation dry. These discrete pumps remain hidden after installation. They feature solid lids that are flush with your basement floor allowing flooring to be installed right over the pump. The drain line for the pump discharge is also concealed within the basement dry wall. Your basement can be fully finished with these pumps in place and out of sight.
