Basement Waterproofing Problems

BASEMENT LEAKS


Your home was built to keep the water out, not to leak. So if water is coming in, then something needs to be fixed to keep it out. There is no one-size-fits-all solution for leaking basements here in Atlanta and Athens. That is why we custom craft each waterproofing solution for each house and each customer.

Here are common signs of basement leaks:

    • Basement water seepage through walls
    • Basement leaking at base of walls
    • Mineral deposits on basement walls
    • Basement wall leak
    • Basement flooding
    • Standing water in basement
    • Basement humidity & dampness
    • Musty odor in basement

Most foundation and below-grade walls are constructed from poured concrete or concrete masonry block. Concrete products are porous and, unless treated, are not waterproof, allowing rainwater and groundwater to migrate into the building. Groundwater and rainwater can cause a lot of damage to a home, both cosmetically and structurally. Building materials that are allowed to remain damp, wet, or saturated with water for long periods of time will eventually fail and cause even bigger problems in your home.

We know how overwhelming it can seem to diagnose and fix something as important as a problem with your home’s foundation. And we also know that you want to consult with an expert, someone with integrity who is not just trying to sell you something. You want to know that you’ve made the right decision and that it will be fixed once and for all. That’s why we’re here!

WHY DO BASEMENTS LEAK?

Basement waterproofing problems happen for many different reasons, such as:

    • Our mixed-humid climate’s impact on soil, concrete & cement
    • Inadequate drainage or grading of your yard
    • Water pooling around your home
    • Waterproofing wrongly installed at the time of construction
    • Deterioration of products used in previously installed waterproofing or drainage
    • Missing or incorrectly installed foundation drainage
    • Structural cracks in foundation walls
    • Downspouts dumping water at or near the foundation
    • Defective or missing gutters & downspouts

You might be asking yourself questions like:

How can I know what is causing the problem?

What is the best solution? Will it cost a fortune to fix?

Will it really work?

Moisture problems in basements are fairly common, but often not understood or properly fixed. These problems are not only annoying and uncomfortable, but they can lead to real damage to your home and even to health issues if left untreated.

Basement water problems are solvable, but they must be fixed right. To properly correct the issue, it’s imperative to understand where the water is coming from and why.
