Commonly Asked Questions About Waterproofing

Water can get into your basement multiple ways including the floors or walls, the joints where the walls meet the floors or leaky windows. There may be cracks present where the water is coming through. Whether your basement is just damp or experiencing standing water, these are common problems that are not normal.

You may not be experiencing large amounts of water in your basement frequently, but that does not mean there isn’t a problem at hand. These issues typically get worse with time. Plus if you leave the problem untouched, it allows for mold and dampness to stick around.

Yes – but it’s important to have a high-quality pump. Common problems with sump pumps include exceeding water capacity and power failures. Our SafeDri sump pump, for example, has a secondary pump in case the primary pump gets overwhelmed by extremely high water amounts. All of our sump pump options include a backup battery system in case of a power outage.

The cost depends on a variety of things: the size of the job, sump pump features, job site obstructions, and more. Regardless of the cost, there is plenty of value in making the investment. Waterproofing prevents future damage to property and increases the value of your home – not to mention peace of mind.

Each home is different and so is each waterproofing solution. Each of our drainage systems is designed to address different challenges, whether it’s how your home has been built or unusual basement waterproofing issues. The best way to know which system is best for your situation is to have a proposal written up to match your home and repair needs.
