Our Waterproofing Systems
We use advanced systems from one of the leading industry manufacturers of basement waterproofing systems. Each system we provide is designed to withstand and mitigate water under different conditions. Depending on the condition of water leaks and hydrostatic pressure will determine which system we install, if not multiple. These consist of three different unique drain systems, a sump pump, and dehumidifiers. Wet basement waterproofing is the art and science of figuring at the source of leaks, and finding the best solutions. With our team of contractors, you can expect professional assessment that will address these problems accurately without overspending.
Handling Wet Basement Problems
The first step is to figure out why the basement is getting water into it. We accomplish this by providing a complete inspection and assessment of the foundation, the yard drainage pattern and even your gutter system. During this time we will find where the leaks are coming from, and then provide an accurate recommendation of the work we would provide to repair this problem. After of which, we would then give an estimate of our services and the products we would use. Wet basements and the leaks that cause them can be difficult to comprehend, but we ensure trusted solutions form our team as one of the most reliable basement waterproofing companies in the area.
Water Leaks in Your Basement
There are various leaks that can occur within your basement where seen and unseen water poses a threat to your concrete and structural integrity. Whereas, basement waterproofing is the only solution. These include:
If you notice wall cracks in your basement walls, in most cases water will leak through. These can range between minimal to extreme leaks depending on the severity of your wall crack, and the surrounding soil conditions that me be water-logged. This can come from climate and natural occurring materials in the soil which create hydrostatic pressure against your walls. Cracks begin to form, and leaks begin to spout water within your basement. A simple basement waterproofing system will help alleviate this problem by mitigating water before it meets the wall.
Floor Crack Leaks
Floor crack leaks are similar to wall cracks. Hydrostatic pressure and rising water tables create unstable soil conditions underneath your basement floor, causing cracks and leaks. By using a basement waterproofing system underneath the concrete floor, we can effectively mitigate excess water away from the foundation to remove pressure and ward off further leaks.
Other Leaks from Unknown Entrances
There are other various openings that can occur, beyond the obvious cracks in most basements. These consist of cove joints which are areas where the wall meets the floor, masonry walls where the filling between mason bricks are leaking, basement window leaks around the seal, plumbing pipes that do not have the appropriate seal around the opening, ‘tie-rods’ which are exposed metal pipes from deteriorating concrete, and over-flooded floor drains. These are all different aspects of wet basement waterproofing issues that have effected thousands of homes. Each of our waterproofing systems will address each unique problem in specific ways to repair, protect, and mitigate water.
Additional Services We Offer:
Basement waterproofing is a complicated yet simple process of protecting your home from water damages. In some cases, this service must over-step into other services depending on the problem at hand. With cases such as wall crack leaks, our waterproofing systems will mitigate and drain water, however the crack itself is still exposed. In this situation we would use bowed wall repair to re-stabilize and align your cracked wall while sealing the crack in the process. Where floor cracks have become detrimental, we would use foundation settlement repair to address the sinking concrete issues if the problem is sever. Feel free to call with any questions.
