BASEMENT WATERPROOFING

Don't let unwanted moisture wreak havoc in your home. Are you experiencing pooling water, visible mold or a musty odor in your basement?

Basement waterproofing is a process of preventing water infiltration and moisture buildup in your basement, helping to protect your home from potential damage and health risks. We will identify and address any existing water sources, such as cracks in the foundation or improper drainage and repair them.

By investing in basement waterproofing, you can protect your basement from water damage, such as mold growth, structural deterioration, and potential flooding. It can also help improve indoor air quality and create a healthier living environment for you and your family. Trust our expert team to eliminate moisture issues, ensuring a dry, healthy, and welcoming space you can enjoy for years to come.

3 indications you have more going on under the surface: Reclaim your basement, make repairing your basement a top priority!

MUSTY ODOR:

The presence of a musty or moldy smell is a indicator of excess moisture. This creates an ideal environment for mold and mildew to grow, resulting in a distinct, unpleasant odor.

MOLD AND MILDEW GROWTH:

Moisture in the basement can lead to the development of mold and mildew on surfaces such as walls, floors, and furniture. Visible signs of mold growth, including discoloration, black spots, or fuzzy patches, indicate a moisture problem.

CONDENSATION OR POOLING:

Excessive moisture in the basement often leads to noticeable condensation on windows, pipes, or other surfaces. Be on the lookout for water droplets or foggy windows, as this indicates high humidity levels and inadequate moisture control.

  • The longevity of basement waterproofing can vary depending on factors such as the quality of materials used, the effectiveness of installation, and the level of maintenance. Generally, professionally applied waterproofing systems can last for decades.

  • Our basement waterproofing services come with a 20-year warranty, ensuring long-lasting protection and satisfaction for our valued customers.

  • The cost of basement waterproofing varies depending on factors such as the size and condition of the basement, the chosen waterproofing method, and the extent of any required repairs. It's best to schedule a consultation for an accurate assessment, but generally cost ranges from $10,000 - $25,000. Again this can cost more or less depending on your basements condition. 

  • Adding a liner to your basement walls is a smart move when it comes to waterproofing. These liners serve multiple purposes. They create an extra barrier against water, preventing it from seeping into your basement. Additionally, they act as vapor barriers, reducing moisture transmission, which can lead to mold growth. Furthermore, these liners help protect the structural integrity of your walls by minimizing the risk of water damage, such as cracks or deterioration. Overall, installing a liner is a proactive step that enhances your waterproofing efforts, ensuring a dry and healthy basement environment.

  • A battery backup system is a must-have component of any effective basement waterproofing plan. This system is a secondary power source for your sump pump during power outages, ensuring continuous protection against water intrusion. Without a backup system in place, your sump pump would be useless during power failures, leaving your basement vulnerable to flooding and damage. Investing in a battery backup system provides peace of mind, especially during severe weather events or emergencies, ensuring that your basement remains protected at all times.

  • Basement walls can leak due to various reasons, including poor drainage, cracks, hydrostatic pressure, and inadequate waterproofing. Rainwater or groundwater can infiltrate through cracks or gaps, leading to moisture issues. Identifying the cause is crucial for effective waterproofing solutions, such as improving drainage, sealing cracks, or installing waterproofing systems. Consulting a professional can help diagnose and address the problem of maintaining a dry basement.

  • Generally, standard homeowners insurance policies do not cover basement waterproofing as it is considered a preventative maintenance issue. However, insurance may cover water damage resulting from sudden and accidental events, such as burst pipes or severe storms, depending on your policy's terms. Consult with your insurance to find out what your policy covers.

  • When deciding on waterproofing, whether to do it from outside or inside, several factors come into play.

    We specialize in interior waterproofing, which involves managing water that has already entered your basement by installing systems like sealants and drainage. We also install downspout extensions for proper water flow away from your home’s foundation. Other extensive exterior waterproofing may involve digging around your foundation, which isn’t a service we currently offer. To make the best choice for your situation, schedule a consultation to have your basement looked at.
