Basement Waterproofing in St. Louis, MO 

basement sump pump 3d image

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.

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. 

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. 

Basement Waterproofing Solutions in St. Louis

Every home in St. Louis is unique and requires its own basement waterproofing solutions. After a free inspection from one of our waterproofing services experts, they may recommend any number of products to keep your basement and home dry. 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.

Kevin was on time and very genuine. After looking at our crack, he recommended what to do to fix it and didn’t try to sell me anything that was not needed. He gave suggestions upon inspection of the outside of the house but never said we needed service from them. It’s very refreshing to have someone that is honest and not trying to sell you something you don’t need. Highly recommend Kevin from Foundation Recovery Systems!

Foundation Revovery Systems has reached out and is assisting me with my issues. It was quick to act on my concerns, so I've adjusted this and will adjust reflect more positively if things are remedied as indicated.***UPDATE: The company has gone above and beyond to remedy the situation. I would recommend this company.****PROS:>> Company itself is responsive (but not always its employees, such as the salesman)>> Quick scheduling (but they did delay a work or so, but they refunded me $100 after asking)>> Did installation correctly to my knowledge (but grading outside house should have been mentioned before offering the $6,000 fix)>> Individuals working the project (and those who followed up) were pleasant

From the folks I spoke with in the office to Jeremy H. who came out to do the inspection to the crew who did the work, everyone was friendly and professional. I received several emails and texts leading up to the appointments, preparing me for what to expect, as well as phone calls the mornings of the work to let me know the crew was on their way and when they'd arrive. After the inspection, I was given options about the repairs, and it was all clearly explained. A few weeks after the inspection, I had several piers installed around my foundation. For two days, Brandon C., Dylan E., and Darrion R. worked so hard and communicated in a clear and friendly manner with me as I pestered them with questions. FRS really made repairing my foundation as painless a process as possible. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone.

The work of Brandon C, Dylan E, Darrion R, Blake B and Cris B was all incredibly professional and well done. They were respectful of how their heavy machinery needed for the job moved around the yard, put extra care in not damaging things that were in the way of their work and even moved rocks my kids had decorated to a different spot so they wouldn’t get damaged which I felt was above and beyond. They really cared about doing what could be done for our specific porch/foundation fix rather than just doing a generic job.

Miguel and Abby were very professional, they did a great job, in not only leveling out my extremely old, multiple cracked up, totally uneven driveway (2 to 3 inches unlevel in parts), but also the sealing of it, especially between my driveway and garage and the driveway and porch … I just love it! Then, the levelingand sealing of my back porch was just as outstanding!

I just want to say thank you. We looked into several other companies before calling Foundation Recovery Systems. I was hesitant to call a company so far away from us but we were in a time crunch to get our foundation fixed before it caused further issues. In times like these it is hard to find a company who is so responsive. Two Gentleman drove over 2 hours to our jobsite to complete a foundation issue for us. Brett the foreman and his right handman Gary were so helpful. They took time to answer our questions, to go over what they were doing, and to show us the process. They were so kind to our two small kids and even explained what they were doing to them. I want to say thank you for these two men for all of their hard work in the freezing cold temps the other day and all the wind today. They were professional and very kind and never complained. Thank you Brett and Gary I appreciate all that you have done and how you fixed our foundation and as my kids would say (Their playroom is no longer sliding). Thank you so much for doing a good job and for taking care of the jobsite as if it was your own home!Amanda

Great experience using Foundation Recovery Systems. Highly recommend. Ken was very detailed with the initial walkthrough and was able to determine the leaking issue in my basement. After the sump pump installation the room was very well cleaned and the team even tarped off part of the basement to ensure no dust got on our appliances. Tyler, Isaiah, and Jake did an amazing job. Thanks all!

From start to finish I enjoyed my experience with Foundation Recovery Systems. Tommy Tuck was the CFI who put the project together he was very professional and set the expectation accordingly. Tyler Bannister was the foreman on the project and he was very nice and professional they exceeded my expectations and would highly refer them to any of my friends or family. Will definitely use them again for future foundation needs.
