Common Waterproofing Problems That Need Repair
If you have water in your home during rainy weather, then you know how serious the problems can be. Our professionals are here to help you find the ideal waterproofing plan to ensure your home is safe during the rain.
Floods in Your Basement
Primarily due to a very serious opening or drainage problem, flooded basements can be a serious hazard. The most common cases derive from basement floor drains that have become clogged or over-worked, sump pumps that are broken or cannot drain enough water, or lack of a waterproofing system to help carry the load. If these other symptoms are not the case, this can be caused by normal seepage issues that build up water for long periods of time without a place to be drained.
If you have a leaky basement the most common problem comes from cracks or openings throughout the basement causing seepage. Leaks can range from slow to steady having adverse effects on your concrete, walls, and floors. Over time the amount of water can become more severe creating more problems for your basement- including structural damages.

Bowing Basement Walls
This is a common problem that is caused from hydrostatic pressure in the soil surrounding your home. Whenever the soil around your home swells up from moisture, it will put a lot of pressure on the walls on the base of your home. Eventually, the wall(s) will be pushed into your home. We can install durable wall anchors that are much better than traditional anchors on the market today.
Wall & Concrete Cracks
Cracks in your basement are unsightly and can cause a lot of problems. Most often, this problem is caused from concrete shrinkage in the foundation or from a rising and falling water table outside your home. When it comes to repairing this issue, we can make use of a urethane injection technique that will seal it off and stop water from getting into your home.
