Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: We only have a week to fix our Sun Valley, Idaho cabin!

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018 by Lauralei Beattie

Challenge

Troy has a cabin in Sun Valley and every year for Christmas all of his family will drive up from Nampa, Caldwell, Boise, Meridian, Eagle, Idaho Falls, Pocatello, and Twin Falls.  Troy plus 24 other family members will all gather in one place. “It’s the highlight of the year, seeing all my kids and grandchildren together” Troy said. In November Troy always would go up and make sure the cabin was already for his family, this year it definitely was not… Troy walked down into his basement which is almost 1200 square feet of open space and he had about an inch of water covering the floor. He found the issue was coming from a crack in the wall that he had never seen. Troy gave us a call and told us about how he had to have this issue taken care of by Christmas. 

Solution

Jeff Smith went out to the cabin in Sun Valley and was able to come up with a great plan to not only fix the leak but to make sure it would never happen again. Jeff talked to Troy about FlexiSpan, it would seal the crack and provide a built-in secondary repair strategy in case the first seal fails. Jeff explained how the FlexiSpan is very flexible and no amount of wall movement will make it leak again. Troy loved the sound of that but his main concern was having the job done before Christmas weekend. Because FlexiSpan is so easy to install and dries quickly, Troy's basement was going to be done just in time.
