Water-tight makeover

The clients of this St. Margaret’s Bay home wanted a solution for water infiltration to their basement and wanted to replace the old addition to their home in order to provide more function and value. Updates included a perimeter drain tile, a membrane applied on the basement walls, a protective drainage plain and rigid cement board to finish. The addition created a new full basement, new expanded kitchen and family area as well as a master walk-in closet. The whole house was re-clad with 2” of rigid insulation and siding while the addition’s interior received 2” of 2lb closed cell spray-foam.
