Basement Problem Signs in Kansas City
Leaks and flooding are the two most obvious problem signs indicating that something is amiss in your Kansas City basement. In addition to obvious water damage, you might also notice cracks in the basement floor, mold, bug infestation, and musty aromas both within the basement and throughout the rest of your home. It is crucial to have your basement and house properly assessed by the team at Foundation Recovery Systems because some of these issues might be mistaken for or even co-occur with other damage, such as foundation problems.
A flooded basement is one of the most frustrating things that can happen in a home. Thankfully, we know how to prevent it.
Basement floor cracks can be easily and effectively repaired as part of a proper perimeter drainage system.
Sump pumps are a vital piece of equipment in your basement to keep water out and prevent your basement from flooding. If your sump pump fails to activate or becomes clogged with debris, your home could quickly become flooded.
Mold and dampness in your basement can be signs of structural damage, but they can also cause huge amounts of damage on their own!
Causes of Basement Damage in Kansas City
While internal factors like a busted sump pump or burst pipe may be to blame, the soil under and around the structure is usually the root cause of basement issues in Kansas City houses. After the basement walls are constructed, the dirt that was removed is replaced. When this loose clay soil gets overly saturated, which is common with 42 inches of average annual rainfall in Kansas City, the clay bowl effect and the development of an artificial water table may occur. Because of the hydrostatic pressure that the water in the expansive clay soil produces, basement walls may easily leak and crack.
If you have noticed dampness and damage in your basement, poor foundation drainage could be an underlying factor. Our experts can help you to deal with it.
When your basement floor starts to leak, you can reach out to area professionals for home waterproofing solutions.
The clay bowl effect plagues homeowners living on loose soil. You can work with contractors to protect your home from its related damage.
Damage to your window wells can take many forms and very often leads to leaks and water damage. The underlying causes of leaking window wells are many.
Basement Waterproofing Solutions in Kansas City
Because your Kansas City home’s basement is unique and is up against its own set of challenges, it will require certain repairs specifically suited for those needs. Our team at Foundation Recovery Systems will customize your basement waterproofing solutions, but some of the products your inspector might suggest include interior drains, a sump pump, a wall vapor barrier, and an energy-efficient dehumidifier. Backup sump pumps also are available, as well as other types of drains and various repairs.
Dehumidifiers are a critical part of a full waterproofing system to remove any excess moisture from the air and to keep your home permanently dry.
Our sump pump system can pump out an excess of 11,500 gallons of water on a fully charged battery– that’s enough water to fill a small swimming pool!
Basements are very susceptible to moisture issues, so you need a product that is designed to withstand the extra moisture and be able to protect the space from water damage. Our basement wall finishing products are designed just for that and can handle the extra humid environment.
Not all basement drains are treated equally. Some function differently, and some work better than others.
