Basement Waterproofing & Structural Repairs
 
The Problem
You know you need your basement waterproofed when you see these signs.
• Water infiltrates or floods your basement during periods of rain and snow melt.
• Cracks have developed in your foundation walls or stairs.
• The basement walls are showing signs of bulges in toward the basement.
• The basement floor is lifting or dropping.
 
The Causes
The biggest reasons for the problems above are:
• Hydrostatic pressure, that is, the force exerted on the foundation of your house by water that soaks into the ground surrounding it as a result of storm water runoff and snow melt.
• Foundation walls that have been damaged by the force of tree roots or soil movement underground.
• Non-existent or inadequate drainage, down spouting or exterior landscape grading.
 
The Benefits
The biggest benefits to waterproofing your basement are as follows:
• An Increase to the Value of Your Home.
• Increased Living Space for Your Family to Enjoy.
• Elimination of Some of the Respiratory Problems Caused By Mold, Mildew and Fungus That Often Result from Wet Basements.
• Peace of Mind in Knowing that the Foundation of Your Home is Safe and Sound.
