Basement Waterproofing Contractor

Basement moisture is a homeowner's worst nightmare. Even if you don't have this space finished, you likely use it as an area to store things you don't have room for upstairs or in the garage. A lot of homeowners want to know what causes the leaks to begin with. Often times, water can seep into your home through the cove joint (where the wall meets the floor), over the top of the foundation, through leaking wall or floor cracks, or because of clogged floor drains. Regardless of what's causing the problem, you need to get it taken care of immediately before the water issue gets worse - and it will get worse given time.

Wet Basement Problems

Our team of basement waterproofing professionals will come to your home, pinpoint the cause of the leak, and then come up with a plan of action for getting the issue taken care of once and for all. We use SafeBasements™ products, including special drains and sump pumps. When you don't have a leaky basement, you don't have to worry about the water destroying wooden materials below your home - and this includes support beams and floor joists. Also, when you don't have seepage below your home, you don't have to be concerned about the grow of nasty mold and bacteria which could make your family really sick. We can take care of waterproofing basement walls, floor cracks, and other various problems which could prevent you from having a dry, usable, and functional area below your home.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below we have our most commonly asked basement and waterproofing questions and their answers. Please take some time to read through them and if you have a question about anything not discussed here, do not hesitate to contact us!

My egress window is leaking, can you help?
  1. We do not repair or install egress windows. It is best to call a highly reviewed window company.
  2. A few things to look for before you call a window company:
    1. Is the window closed and latched tightly?
    2. Check to make sure the weather-stripping is in good shape.
    3. Sometimes an egress window is installed with a central drain. Check the drain to make sure it is operating correctly.
    4. Check to make sure you have proper positive grade sloping away from your home.
    5. Do you have an egress cover, and is it the correct size?
How can we keep water from entering our home?
  1. The number one thing to address is the proper positive grade away from your home.
    1. It is recommended to have a 5% positive grade.
    2. This works out to be a 6 to 8-inch drop for the first 10 feet away from the structure.
    3. Depending on where you live, you may need a permit. You may need to call a professional landscaper.
  2. Gutters are the 2nd thing to address.
    1. Inspect your gutter system to make sure it is working properly.
    2. Clear all debris from your gutters regularly.
    3. Check downspouts and make sure they are attached. Make sure they are directing the water away from the home.
    4. The further away you can direct the water, the better.
  3. Check your water softener.
    1. Where does it drain?
    2. Is that drain working properly?
What kind of waterproofing do you install?
  1. We install our proprietary SafeBasements interior drain tile system. Our system will drain water from the walls and lowers the water table below the floor. It is a clog-resistant, erosion-control, semi-sealed system that improves indoor air quality.
  2. We do not paint "water sealer" on your walls. Sealing the moisture in your walls will cause higher humidity levels and could possibly deteriorate the cement block over time.
  3. We do not build French drains in your yard.
Why is there a stream of water leaking out of my new discharge pipe?
  1. What you are seeing is the pre-drilled weep hole.
    1. The weep hole helps reduce the pressure by evacuating the trapped air. This allows water to flow into the sump pump.
  2. If the air is not released, it will cause the pump to become air locked.
Why is my basement wet after a rainstorm?

If the puddles form during or very shortly after the heavy rain started, there may be a grading problem around your foundation, combined with hydrostatic pressure that finds weaknesses in your concrete floor, perhaps in the form of cracks.

What is that white powder on my basement wall?

Efflorescence is a common problem in concrete and masonry block foundations. The white fuzzy stuff you see along the inside and outside of your basement wall is efflorescence. Efflorescence is simply salt and can be easily removed.

However, if you see efflorescence it means you have a moisture problem and if gone untreated can cause deterioration to the basement walls.
