Basement waterproofing refers to techniques used to prevent exterior or ground water from either entering or meeting the contents of the basement of a house or another part of a building. It is also useful for homes with high humidity that’s condensing on the cool walls of the basement. Basement waterproofing may be installed as an interior or exterior solution, and with proper drainage or sealants, will block water or moisture at different points. Ultimately, this protects your belonging from water damage, your family from mold, mildew, and other irritants, and maintains the structural integrity of your home.
Homes, buildings, and structures built at ground level or below ground will likely need basement waterproofing, especially if ground water builds up in the soil and raises the water table. Higher water tables create hydrostatic pressure which exerts itself underneath basement floors and against basement walls, ultimately forcing water into your home through cracks in foundation walls, through openings caused by expansion and contraction of the footing-foundation wall joint, and up through floor cracks. Moisture and major structural damage in the foundation contributes to mold, decay, and other moisture related problems in your home. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, as many as 25% of all U.S. homes currently leak and up to 85% will experience a leaking basement in their lifetime. The consequences of a wet basement is a serious problem for any home and requires an experienced basement waterproofing contractor to perform the repair.
