Keeping your basement dry, safe, and healthy should always be a number one priority, and any water or moisture issues should be handled quickly and efficiently. By confronting these issues head on, you can help ensure structural integrity of your home. If you notice water in your basement or damp floors, our team will help you determine not only where the water is coming from but what solution is best for a long-term fix. Water can enter the basement in a variety of ways, including over the top of the foundation, through the cove joint, through cracks in the wall or floor, and from many other places. Our team will install a basement waterproofing system that can stop water seepage from any source and protect your basement from damage.
Unfortunately, wet basements happen. Without immediate action, your basement and home is subject to expensive damage, including but not limited to wood rot and mold growth near the floor joists of your home. Issues such as persistent moisture and rotting wood don’t only endanger the structural integrity of your home, but also invite pests such as termites and roaches. Tackling these moisture issues directly is vital to your home’s safety and your family’s health.
Mold and mildew growth can cause a variety of serious health problems. These issues can all be avoided by having an effective basement waterproofing system installed in your home to help keep it moisture free.(410) 263-9682
When you see water on your basement floor or walls, it may not be easy to tell where the water is coming from. Even if the water seems to be coming from the floor, there are many other places it could be entering from. Water tends to take the path of least resistance, meaning that the water in your basement isn’t usually coming directly through the floor.
The five most common sources of basement leaks are the cove joint, windows, wall cracks, floor cracks, and over the top of the foundation. In each of these instances, the water that seeps in originates from run-off seeping into the ground and eventually finding its way into your basement. This means that once water has gotten into your home this way it will likely enter your home again from the same exact spot. Our team of trained experts are able to pinpoint these problems and provide you with the best solution to waterproof your basement.
While our experts understand the importance of basement waterproofing, we also understand the need to work within your budget to provide the best solution possible. We offer solutions for wet basements in both interior basement waterproofing systems and exterior basement waterproofing systems. These two systems differ in that one is installed on the inside of your home and is usually less intrusive to your property, whereas most exterior systems require excavation of the ground around the exterior of your home to be installed.
The majority of all basement leaks can be solved with interior basement waterproofing systems and our experts will always recommend that an interior system be installed on the home when possible.
Our interior basement waterproofing systems are designed to capture any water entering your home before it becomes a problem and direct it away from your home. These systems often include the installation of drain tile, the sealing of wall or floor cracks, and the installation of a sump pump system to completely protect your basement from leaks.
Exterior basement waterproofing systems are usually installed either during the construction of the home or after the ground around the home has been excavated. These systems include the installation of a waterproof membrane around the foundation of the home that stops the water before it enters any cracks in your foundation.
