Indications of Water Damage:

  • Pools of water
  • Musty smell
  • Flaking paint
  • Discoloration of surfaces
  • Efflorescence (white chalky residue deposited from water evaporation)
  • Dark or wet spots
  • Mold growth

Why does water get into my basement?

During periods of heavy or persistent rain, the soil can become saturated, creating hydrostatic pressure (or water pressure) that can push moisture and water through your basement walls and floor. Rainwater from clogged gutters can also pool around your foundation, expanding the soil, building lateral pressure against your foundation, and ultimately causing damage to your home.

Why should I waterproof my basement?

  • Increase the Value of Your Home - A thorough waterproofing solution is a great investment and will raise the value of your home.
  • Promote Health & Safety - Water damage in a home can cause many health concerns.
  • Prevent Mold Growth - Damp spaces create the perfect conditions that allow for mold growth, posing a risk of toxic air.
  • Protect Your Belongings - Water issues can also ruin your belongings and the interior of your home.
