Why Does Your Basement Leak?
Do you find yourself having unexplained water in basement situations? Cleaning up the mess and repairing any damage are always obvious and essential steps. However, if you truly want to prevent things from happening again, you need to know what happened and then discover the source of the water in your basement.
Floor & Wall Leaks
If your basement has flooded or leaked, you should think about installing a basement waterproofing system. We use a sub-floor drainage system that will solve your specific water problems effectively!
Our crack injection system has been designed for repair of leaky basement in problem areas such as expanding and contracting cracks, expansion joints and cold joints.
Sump Pump Installation
A sump pump is used for performance and reliability for your foundation. It accepts water from beneath the slab and does not promote undermining of the foundation.
This will help keep water out of your home first. The soil starts to swell around your home, expands and contracts due to the moisture, and that is where you tend to see cracking. Which leads to water entering your home.
3 Reasons To Waterproof Your Basement
Protect Your Health
With a damp, leaky basement you are prone to have mold or mildew in your basement. These will continue to grow and spread, which will result in sickness for everyone in the house. Mold typically begins to grow within 24-48 hours in a moist environment.
Protect Your Investment
Water entering your home can cause major problems down the road, so why wait? This could also help improve the property value of your home as well. A waterproofed basement can add more of a living space and functionality to your home.
Reduce Yearly Costs
As most do not know, waterproofing your basement can help reduce your electric bill costs. Having damp air in your basement can add 10%-15% to your electric bill. Studies show that it will save over $250 a year.
