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. 

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. 

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.
