The cause of a wet basement is usually rainwater that has saturated the exterior of the home in the over-dig area. Water creates pressure at the base of the virgin soil and the foundation. The water can then infiltrate over or under the footing and enter the basement. Water can enter through a visible crack, a floor/wall joint, a bulkhead, a window, or sill plate. Homeowners must keep this in mind when diagnosing the source of water in their wet basement.

Benefits of Basement Waterproofing
Increase Usable Space in Your Home – Looking at it from a square footage point of view, the basement accounts for an entire floor. Use this space and add value to your home!
Reduce Energy Costs – By sealing up cracks in your basement or crawl space, you can increase your energy efficiency by preventing cool air from escaping during the summer months and warm air from escaping during the winter months.
Avoid Health Risks – Under the right conditions, toxic black mold grows in as little as 24-48 hours! Regular exposure to toxic mold poses serious long-term health risks for you and your family.
Protect Your Investment – Take action to ensure the long-term health of the very foundation your home sits on. Your home is no small investment; make sure to take good care of it, and you will be rewarded in the long run.
Peace of Mind is Worth a lot These Days – Stress is being linked to more serious health issues every day. Wouldn’t it be nice to not have to constantly stress about cleaning up after and saving belongings from your faulty basement for a change?
