We know just how stressful it can be to worry about water leakage and flooding in a basement. It is not unusual to use a basement for storage space, which makes it even more critical to hire professional basement waterproofing services to keep valuables safe. The Waterproofing Pros have the experience and knowledge necessary to ensure that not one aspect of the process is missed so that all of our customers have the peace of mind knowing that they will not have to worry about water damage in the future.
Many homeowners attempt to handle the basement waterproofing process on their own, but from our experience, this fails more often than not. In order to fully waterproof a space that is below ground level, one must follow a very strict set of processes. There cannot be one detail that has been left unaddressed or else there will still be the opportunity for water to penetrate the foundation.
Effective waterproofing involves far more than just sealing cracks and crevices in the basement’s foundation. In fact, even the soil outside must be addressed, up to a number of feet away from the home. It is a technical process that requires years of experience to fully understand where all of the risks of water entry exist. Our waterproofing experts at have that experience and know just what methods will best address those risks depending on the specific situations at hand.
We will come to your home and complete a comprehensive evaluation. This begins with examining the grade of the soil outside your home. One of the most common causes of flooding and leakage is that water is flowing towards the basement instead of away from the home. We will also examine the water spouts to ensure that they are extended an appropriate distance from the home based on the grading of the land surrounding it.
Of course, we will also spend time examining the interior of the basement. When a basement settles over time, it is normal for cracks to develop in the foundation. In many cases, these can be resolved with proper sealing. However, in some cases more extensive work may need to be done. Our professional contractors know where the thresholds lie in these situations.
In addition to the integrity of the foundation, we will check the function, power and set up of your existing sump pump systems. All too common homeowners do not have the right type of sump pump system for the size of their basement. In many cases, there should be dual sump pumps the guarantee that if the water table were to rise during heavy rains, the sump pumps have the capacity and power to stay ahead of the risk of flooding.
