The Onset of Mold

Very small leaks or dampness in the basement may not be a big deal and may be handled as a DIY project. But if mold and mildew invade the area you should be concerned since things could get serious. Not only can mold and mildew cause damage to your home they can also cause health problems if you end up breathing them in. Once mold and mildew set in you may need professional experienced help to find the right solution.

Basement Leaks in a Finished Basement

If you have a finished basement and is used as a family recreational room or an office you should also be a little concerned if you have dampness or a leak in it. Once moisture gets into the area you won’t be able to build over it and mold and mildew will begin to add up. Most basement leaks originate from a leak in the home’s foundation since the rooms are built under the ground level where water can build up. If there are any crevices or cracks down there, the water will usually find them and force its way into the home.

Melting ice and snow and rainwater usually make up the groundwater and homes in Aurora are usually the recipients of harsh winters. In addition, the water can find an easier route into the home if the grading around it is poorly laid out. In this case, the water ends up forming pools around the foundation and a false water table. If your basement is constantly damp, it’s a good idea to contact a professional waterproofing company such as Nusite to have it looked at before the foundation can deteriorate. We’ll give you our opinion on the matter and let you know how bad the leak is and if you can fix it yourself.

Exterior and Interior Waterproofing

If there are puddles of water in the basement though, it could require special equipment to repair the leak. Bigger leaks generally need to be fixed from the outsider while smaller ones can usually be repaired from inside the building. When the leak is treated from the outside the water pressure will push against the treatment and into the cracks and crevices in the foundation. If the treatment is handled inside, the treatment will be pushed away due to the water pressure.

Whatever you decide to do about a leaky basement it’s always better to deal with it sooner rather than later so mold and mildew don’t lead to structural decay. If this happens, it will end up being a bigger and more expensive problem to solve.

Basement Waterproofing

Our basement leaked! Of course . . . we bought a 100 year old house! But my office needed to be in the basement permanently. I interviewed 10 different companies until we decided on the Steinbergs and their crew at Nu-Site! They are professional, reliable, courteous, honest, and they really make an effort to communicate with the client about every step of the process.

Foundation and Waterproofing Repairs

After several years of chronic leaks, we decided to have our basement waterproofed once and for all. The team over at Nusite was professional, answered my questions during the project and stayed within their quoted price....which is always a concern for me when working with contractors. Great job overall

Joshua Persaud - Yellowpages Review

Basement Waterproofing

Had several cracks in my basement wall and they would leak whenever we had a heavy rain. It started about a year and a half ago and seems to have gotten worse over the past 6 months. I tried having my neighbor seal it, but it started leaking again within a few weeks. Called several waterproofing companies and got several quotes. Finally went with Nusite contractors for the job. They gave a reasonable quote and I liked the guy that came by for the estimate. They stayed within budget and cleaned up before they left. It's been almost 3 months now and it seems to be working great.
