What Causes Interior Basement Waterproofing Issues?
There are various causes which can cause basement waterproofing issues, including wall and floor cracks or even faulty plumbing. Our team specializes in identifying these causes and repairing these issues. When your basement has water issues, they are most likely caused by excess water in the soil around your home. As this water builds up, it begins to seek out other areas of low pressure. These can occur when the water outside of your foundation finds a crack or seam in your basement wall or floor that is improperly sealed. Our team can fill these cracks and provide you with a waterproofing system to expel water away from your home.
What Signs To Look For
When checking your basement for signs of water intrusion it is important to check for the easy to spot signs first. Large puddles of water and damp basement walls are clear signs that water is entering your basement from the outside. Once you have found these spots check for cracks in your basement walls and floors, it is important to note that even the smallest crack may be letting water into your basement. In addition to this, you can check to see if there are any large gaps at the area where your basement walls meet the floor.
Our experts are trained to identify these issues and during any normal inspection and consultation can point these issues out to you.
