Issues In the Basement
Whether you’ve had water issues in your basement for a short time or a long while, you need to deal with it. You may not even see the serious water damage that be hiding behind the walls and under the floor. That moisture, dampness, possible mildew and even harmful mold is not just a problem for your home. It’s also a problem for those living in the home.
As expert waterproofing contractors, we will seek out the problem and work with you to explore a basement waterproofing solution to solve the issue.
One major concern in basements and crawl spaces is seepage. This type of slow leak may be under drywall or flooring, and eventually show as water spots, water on the floor, or water running down the walls. You may notice a musty smell, or even see mold spots. Or, a concrete wall or floor may show cracking or heaving.
Seepage also occurs where the wall meets the floor of the basement, meaning the water is seeping up from the ground below the flooring.
It’s not always easy to see the full extent of an issue like seepage, especially the hidden dangers like mildew. Our waterproofing system will ensure water is captured before it enters your basement or crawl space.
To explain this simply, a drainage pipe is dug under the floor against the wall all the way around the basement. What are walled “weeping holes” are drilled into the bottom of the walls, so that water runs into the drainage trench. The water is then carried away. The trench is covered over for aesthetics.
These are just some of the common moisture issues in basements, and the possible solutions we can provide for you. If you’re concerned about the waterproofing basement cost, we work with you to meet your budget while still providing effective answers to your waterproofing issues.
