How We Do Wet Basement Waterproofing
Our contractors understand the very basis of wet basement waterproofing: sealing the holes, gaps, and cracks, and installing a means for better home sustainability through proper drainage and water mitigation away from your important structures. This includes concrete walls, floors, and support beams, as well as exterior concrete and foundations. By installing an efficient basement waterproofing system, your home has better protection against water damages and concrete deterioration. It's that simple.

Water Problems That We Address
Wall Cracks & Leaks
Leaking wall cracks need two things: a waterproofing system to alleviate the water/soil pressure that caused the crack, and a sealing agent.
Cracks in the concrete floor will need further assessment. This could be a foundation problem in addition to waterproofing.
The single floor drain in your basement can be overwhelmed, causing flooding. A waterproofing system alleviates the excess water.
Plumbing, windows, and other objects that are leaking can be fixed in combination with waterproofing and sealing.

The Most Common Issues of Waterproofing: Interior
Perhaps the most common problems associated with waterproofing is the interior. While exterior factors play an important role in the deterioration of your walls and floors, it's the interior of your basement that needs addressing first. By improving the flow of water and redirecting it properly, your basement has already achieved the first step to protection. Waterproofing basement walls from inside is essential to a full recovery, whereas the aftermath of water damages that have already occurred can be addressed with our foundation repair specialists. All of these services ensure that your home and basement has a long life expectancy.
Frequently Asked Questions
Question: What's so bad about wet basements? Is it that dangerous?
Answer: Wet, leaky basements are prone to deteriorate your home from the inside out. As water leaks into the basement, the concrete floors, walls, and supporting structures eventually withers down. This leads to structural problems that threaten your home's survival. In addition to structural problems, damp environments in your basement spark growths of mold which effects wooden materials such as floor boards - eventually growing into other areas of your home.
Question: Are concrete cracks related to waterproofing problems?
Answer: Absolutely! There is often an overlap in symptoms, where a water problem causes a concrete problem, and vice versa. This is why our team provides both foundation repair and basement waterproofing to repair every aspect of your home's needs.
Question: What do you do with basement flooding?
Answer: We advise contacting a specialist immediately. In situations where the excessive amounts of water have gone beyond standard leaks, it's important to address the issue immediately but safely as well. It's also important to have basement flooding repair before real damages present themselves in other areas of the home.
Question: What about window wells and leaks coming from top (outside) of the wall?
Answer: This is another concern of exterior waterproofing that needs to be addressed. While the interior can help with subterranean leaks, water that has risen above ground level can seep through your windows and over your basement walls. We handle these aspects as well!
Question: I already have a sump pump. Why is my basement still wet?
Answer: In some rare cases, a simple sump pump will be installed to help your pre-integrated flood drain (usually in the center of the room). While this can help, it does not address the initial problem. Having a waterproofing drain system to mitigate and direct water away from your walls and floors is equally important as having a sump pump. Having a drain system flow water directly to the sump pump is even better!
