Basement Waterproofing in St. Louis, MO
St. Louis, MO, typically receives an average of 42 inches of rain each year, which is slightly higher than the national average. However, this constant wet weather, combined with the area’s clay loam and silt loam soil adds up to problems for homes with basements. Many St. Louis homes will experience a leaking basement, flooding, mold growth, and other issues if there is a problem with the basement.
While these basement problems are common, no one should have to live with them. Foundation Recovery Systems is your trusted local basement waterproofing company that can help you create a safer and healthier home. Our highly trained experts will diagnose what’s going wrong in your basement and recommend solutions best suited to its unique repair needs.
THE FOUNDATION RECOVERY SYSTEMS PROCESS
Basement Problem Signs in St. Louis
The most obvious signs that something is wrong in your St. Louis home are leaking foundation walls, a leaking basement, and flooding. Apart from visible water, other problem signs you might notice include basement floor cracks, mold growth, pest infestation, and musty odors in your basement and throughout your home. Some of these can be confused with or even co-occur with other damage including foundation problems, so it is important to have your basement and home professionally inspected by the waterproofing services team at Foundation Recovery Systems.
Basement floor cracks can be easily and effectively repaired as part of a proper perimeter drainage system.
Basement Water Damage Help
From time to time, and particularly during the heaviest rains, we’ll speak with a homeowner who has just discovered that their basement is flooded with several inches to several feet of groundwater. The homeowners are, understandably, very upset that their personal items (and sometimes their home’s utilities) have been damaged or destroyed by water. That’s […]
Basement Sump Pump Failure
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.
Causes of Basement Damage in St. Louis
The aforementioned trouble signals can have a wide variety of sources. While interior elements like a broken sump pump or burst pipe may be to blame, the typical cause of basement problems in St. Louis homes is the soil under and around the building. The dirt that was removed during the construction of your home is replaced when the basement walls are built. The clay bowl effect and the establishment of an artificial water table might result from oversaturating this loose silty loam or clay loam soil. Foundation walls may crack and leak as a result of the hydrostatic pressure that the water in the soil creates.
Leaking Basement Floor
When your basement floor starts to leak, you can reach out to area professionals for home waterproofing solutions.
Poor Foundation Drainage
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.
The Clay Bowl Effect
The clay bowl effect plagues homeowners living on loose soil. You can work with contractors to protect your home from its related damage.
Basement Waterproofing Solutions in St. Louis
Every home in St. Louis is unique and requires its own basement waterproofing solutions.

These include an interior drainage system to intercept leaking water, a sump pump to collect this water and pump it away, a dehumidifier to control moisture and humidity, and a wall vapor barrier to further address moisture intrusion. Each solution comes with a long-term, nationally backed, transferrable warranty, and they are designed to work together to keep your home permanently dry. FRS is not a one-size-fits-all basement waterproofing company.
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!

Basement Drainage System
Not all basement drains are treated equally. Some function differently, and some work better than others.
Basement Wall Solutions
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.
