Basement waterproofing is something that just makes sound investment protection sense as a homeowner. Not only does it help prevent flooding, mold or mildew formation, and cracks and fissures, it can also increase your home’s value and reduce energy costs.
You might have suspicions that your home has basement water issues, but some of the tell-tale signs include; wet walls, visible or odorous signs of mold and mildew, dampness around the base of the floor, standing water, rotting joists or support beams, and damaged wood or carpet. We recommend you regularly include a basement inspection to check progress of your basement’s conditions. Consider doing this at each changing season, this way you can be sure to stay on top of any issues and we can respond before it’s too late.
The causes of basement water issues vary but can be contributed to three main issues. Rain or groundwater has seeped into your basement, interior appliances such as dryers, washers or a sump pump has failed to work properly or ventilation has allowed the Midwest humid air to invade your basement.
