Prevent Basement Water Damage
Water damage in your basement is a problem that no homeowner wants to face. Besides being a pain to clean up, it can also lead to bigger, more damaging effects on your basement. Water damage can ruin walls, floors, furniture, or other personal belongings. If left untreated, it can also lead to mold and mildew, which brings musty odors that can infiltrate your home. All things that no homeowner wants to deal with!

Our water prevention systems include:
Gutter Downspout Extensions
Our downspout extensions ensure that your gutters move water away from your home, protecting your basement from leaks caused by overflowing gutters. Depending on the sump pumping system, we install 1 or 2 discharge lines that run underneath the surface of your soil until your yard’s natural slope directs away from your foundation walls. Sometimes this takes 8 feet, sometimes 50. The important thing is that we are equipped to discharge water effectively until it safely slopes away from your home.
Moisture and Puncture-Resistant Vapor Barrier
Given the naturally-damp environment of a basement, installing a vapor barrier on a wall is essential for fully protecting the room. We install a puncture and moisture-resistant, seven-layer plastic sandwich, essentially, called CleanSpace over your walls that connects to your perimeter drainage and sump pumping system and provides protection from mold growth and moisture buildup. As its name implies, CleanSpace gives your basement walls a crisp, white clean appearance, which can be left as is or finished with drywall, paneling, or any other material.
A common catalyst for basement water issues is cracks in your foundation. Even the smallest of cracks can let enough water seep through to cause damage to your basement. We offer a variety of basement crack repair solutions to fix your unique situation.
Sealing out humidity from outside air can protect your home from mold and dust mite problems. Once you’ve waterproofed your basement, one of our patented, industrial-grade air filtration and dehumidification systems is a great way to ensure you never experience a moisture retention problem again, and it will help keep your basement dry, healthy, and at optimal relative humidity levels.
