Basement Waterproofing

DuPage Basement Waterproofing Services

What exactly is basement waterproofing?

Basement waterproofing utilizes specific materials and techniques to prevent water from penetrating the basement of any building or home. The application of sealant materials as well as the installation of drains and sump pumps may be required when waterproofing a basement that is below ground level. Building codes often require waterproofing for structures that are built at ground level or below it. In cases where there is a high water table or where groundwater is likely to build up in the soil, waterproofing and drainage considerations are especially important.

Water in the soil can cause hydrostatic pressure to be exerted beneath basement floors and walls. This hydrostatic pressure may force water in through cracks, resulting in major structural damage as well as decay, mold, and various other moisture-related problems.

Our local team of professionals can take care of your entire basement waterproofing process, based on your needs. We urge you to get in touch with one of our experts as well as to schedule a free on-site estimate.

There are very few things more alarming for a homeowner than water intrusion. Not only can water cause serious structural damage, but there are urgent health problems associated with mold, and the dire risk of additional damage to your home is a major priority. Once water has entered your home, it may cause damages that result in insulation or drywall replacement, and even framing replacement, depending upon the extent of the damage. Mold is an incredibly complicated issue that can be costly both in budget as well as in the health issues it may cause.

In cases where a water leak may have been overlooked for a certain period of time or where moisture problems may have never been properly addressed, it is possible that your home’s foundation could have been compromised and may require repair. Foundation waterproofing is significantly less extensive than foundation repairs. If you observe leaks, bowing, or cracks in the walls for your basement, you should definitely consider whether you may require foundation repairs, a service our company can provide for you!

WHAT CAUSES MOISTURE IN BASEMENTS?

We should have a thorough understanding of what causes moisture to occur in basements in the first place in order to properly understand how to keep your basements dry. Sadly for homeowners, water is quite tricky and skilled at discovering its way into our homes. Basements are more prone to wetness thanks to their unique nature and construction. Below are some key point highlighting the main causes of basement moisture:

Inadequate Soil and Drainage Systems:
If drainage for rain and groundwater is not set up correctly, these elements may enter your basement instead of being directed away from it. Poor soil and rainwater drainage systems are some of the most common causes of basement wetness resulting in basement leak repair. When water is not properly directed away from a home, it may puddle around the home’s foundation, and will eventually find a way inside.
Poorly Maintained and Installed Gutters:
Gutters are meant to direct rainwater away from your foundation. In cases where they have been installed incorrectly or are too clogged to function properly, the water drains around your foundation, rather than running away from it.
Inadequate Slope:
The ground around your home’s foundation should slope away from it, not towards it. If the slope is incorrect, water can accumulate around your foundation, instead of running away from it.
Hydrostatic Pressure:
Hydrostatic pressure occurs when water puddles around your foundation. As gravity pushes down on this water, the water will try to escape, in an attempt to relieve said pressure. The water then forces its way through any cracks in your basement floors and walls. Not only that, if the pressure is strong enough, it alone may cause cracks.
Basement Cracks:
Cracks in your basement floors, walls, and around doors or windows offer the ideal via through which water can pass. Water tends to always flow down the path of least resistance, meaning the cracks may make it easier for water to enter.
Condensation:
Basements are known as quite damp spaces. As condensation occurs, mildew, mold, and potential damage may accompany it.
