Without effective basement waterproofing your home is certain to be susceptible to some amount of leakage and seepage, and while in some cases this may not seem like a serious problem, it definitely is. Water can cause huge amounts of damage in your home far beyond just getting your things wet or making your basement unusable. Water absorption can cause swelling, crumbling, cracking and rotting in certain parts of your home, not to mention that it spawns mold, mildew and fungus spores that are terrible for your health. Repairs to water damaged homes can be very expensive too, and time consuming. Proper basement waterproofing can save you the trouble and expense of water damage repairs, and ensure that your basement is always a warm and dry one. When it comes to the value of your house and the health of your family and yourself, hesitation simply isn't the answer.

What does water do to my house?Unwanted water, in short, is terrible for your home. A moist environment is exactly what mold, mildew and fungus need to thrive, and their growth in your house has plenty of adverse effects. Not only does mold, mildew and fungus accelerate the rotting of structural components of your home, it's also bad for you. These airborne growths can get into your lungs and throat, aggravating allergies and asthma and causing coughs, sneezes and upper respiratory tract infections. Water that leaks into your basement evaporates into the air, too, where it then re-absorbs into drywall, ceiling tiles, wooden fixtures, structural supports and more. When these substances absorb water they can crumble and collapse, droop and discolor, warp and swell, and rot and fail respectively. Water damage repairs are very expensive, too, as they sometimes require the replacement of integral parts of your home. If you're experiencing a leak, drip or drizzle in your basement, don't wait until it's too late. Our basement waterproofing is just what you need to prevent further damage and secure a dry, warm basement.

Why did my basement waterproofing fail?When your house was first built, the foundation and basement were constructed inside of a large hole dug into the ground. Once the foundation was laid and the basement walls were built up, the soil was pushed back into the space between your home and side of the hole. This soil that was pushed back in, or "back filled" soil, is much looser than the other soil around it and subsequently absorbs far more water. The increased level of absorption causes there to be an envelope of soggy soil constantly around your basement, exerting pressure on its moisture barrier. In times of increased precipitation or decreased evaporation, this moisture exerts more pressure for longer periods of time and slowly breaks down the protective barrier of your home. While basement sealant can last for the full lifetime of a home, often normal wear and tear breaks it down so that it begins to leak. Regardless of why your basement is leaking, however, we're dedicated to fixing it for good. Give us a call today!
