A flooded basement can be a huge headache, not only in terms of time spent cleaning up, but the time and money spent repairing the damage caused by all that extra water. You may not even have the proper equipment to clean if mold growth has started or there is significant standing water. You want to keep your family safe, which is why it’s best to call the professionals like those at Adams Foundation Repair. We have years of experience in the industry and can get your basement waterproofing project done quickly and efficiently so that you don’t have to deal with the mess a second time.
What Causes Basement Water Problems?
There are many contributing factors to serious basement flooding or even minor leakage in your home. If you’re experiencing more water than usual, it might be due to some natural factors or simply the way your home was built. Leaking and flooding can be caused by:
- Poor basement sealing
- Drainage system failure
- Improperly installed downspouts
- Debris in gutter
- Bad pipes or hot water tank
Some of these can easily be fixed by simply replacing the drainage system or cleaning out a gutter. Others aren’t so simple and may require work by our professional team. To be sure of what’s causing your water problems, it’s best to give us a call. We’re always ready to help you!
How Can I Waterproof My Basement?
Foundation cracks are a main contributor to serious leaks or flooding in your basement. Thankfully, we offer polyurethane crack injection repair so that you can be sure your basement is sealed for years to come. The resin involved in the process transforms from a liquid to a solid, expanding to fill every inch of the crack as it cures. This process should be used before any serious flooding or leaks have occurred in case you can’t go back and perform waterproofing later, however, we have other solutions if it is too late for polyurethane crack injection repair.
Interior Basement Waterproofing Solutions
When you’re dealing with flooding, you want to make sure you choose the system that does the best job for the best price. At Adams Foundation Repair, we want to help you make an informed choice. As far as interior waterproofing solutions go, our GrateDrain dual-chamber drain system is one of the best options. We can customize it for each basement we work with. This equipment is the strongest system on the market today.
We also offer the FastDrain system for groundwater issues and the GrateTrench floor drain to drain your water while also eliminating odors. In addition to these products, we can install sump pumps and interior tile drain systems to fit all your home’s needs and ensure that water will never overpower your basement again.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing Solutions
If you’re trying to repair a wet basement, it is important to also consider exterior basement waterproofing solutions for your home. Many times, exterior solutions include excavating around your home to identify and remove the problems. We may also install an exterior drain to divert water away from your home with products like the Hydro-Channel basement drainage system. This system is critical in preventing future water drainage into your basement or crawl space. It is installed to direct water into your sump pit instead of through the cove joint. This product is:
- Made with transparent PVC for easier inspection
- Made of heavy-duty materials that won’t collapse
- Can be used for new or existing foundations
- Prevents water seepage and creates a thermal break, reducing cracks in basement floors
- Has a clean, finished look
We will always work with you to determine what the best solution is for your home. We may use some of these options together or only one. It all depends on the current status of your home’s waterproofing systems. Your family’s health and safety are our number one concerns, so choose our team of professionals today!
