Residential Waterproofing & Foundation Repairs
A wet basement is caused by excess water pressure (caused by heavy rain or melting snow) that is pushed through cracks in your home’s foundation. This pressure can cause major structural damage to the foundation of your home and will also contribute to other moisture-related problems, such as mold and decay. Whether you use your basement for additional living space, storage, or don’t use it at all, if you have a chronic wet basement, leakage or some degree of flooding, you need to address the problem because it will not go away on its own.
Chronic wet basements or water leak problems can reduce the value of your home and many realtors advise their customers to fix their basement before putting their home on the market. Long-term water exposure in your basement can lead to foundation erosion, mold, and water-borne bacteria to grow in your basement.

We start by determining the source of the moisture and then recommending an Exterior or Interior method depending on the severity of the leak.
