Frequently Asked Questions regarding Basement Waterproofing

What is Basement Waterproofing and Why Should I Care?

As the name suggests, basement waterproofing is simply waterproofing your basement. While basements are usually damp, a wet basement is a sure sign of bigger issues. A wet basement or a basement that retains a lot of moisture is a perfect place for mold to grow and multiply. Black mold can spread rapidly and compromise the structure of your home and the health of your family.

If you use your basement as storage, you risk getting the stored items wet. What’s more, the value of your property might suffer if you have a leaky basement.
Waterproofing your basement protects the value and structure of your home, improves the functionality of your basement, keeps your stored items dry, and helps ensure the health and wellness of your family members.

The most obvious signs of a leaky basement are a wet floor and moist spots and water trickling down the walls. Aside from these, a leaky basement can also foster mold and mildew growth, produce a musty smell, and have cracks, peeling paint, and bubbles on the wallpaper.
The foundation of your house is surrounded by soil. Sometimes this soil becomes waterlogged due to rain or floods, and the excess water finds its way into the basement through cracks on the walls or floors, through the joints where the poured concrete floor meets the walls, and through cracks in mortar joints.
Houses naturally shift and settle, and these movements can worsen a leaky basement. If your house is built on a low landscape, water will naturally flow towards its general direction and soften the soil under and around your house’s foundation. If your drainage system is not properly installed, the water can pool around the house and weaken the soil. If your neighbors install a new swimming pool, your basement might also suffer.
It is not recommended to try and fix a leaky basement without the help of professionals. Our technicians have the training, tools, and knowledge needed to properly analyze the scope of the problem and the possible solutions to it. It’s best if a leaky basement gets the attention of someone who specializes in fixing basement issues.
There are several factors to consider when estimating the cost of fixing a leaky basement. It depends on the extent of the issue, the waterproofing method to be used, the size of the basement, among other factors. Give us a call today so we can schedule a no-obligation site inspection and provide you with a realistic price quote.
