COMMON BASEMENT ISSUES AND WATER DAMAGE RISKS

MOLD GROWTH

A telltale sign of moisture problems is the presence of mold in your basement. Mold thrives in damp, dark environments, indicating excessive moisture. Beyond property damage, it poses health risks by deteriorating air quality, potentially causing respiratory issues among household members.

WATER INTRUSTION

Finding water in your basement isn’t just an inconvenience; it’s a symptom of a potential breach in your home’s defenses against moisture. Water intrusion can lead to structural damage, ruin personal belongings, and create an environment conducive to mold and mildew growth.

FOUNDATION CRACKS

Visible cracks in your foundation can be alarming signals of structural stress. They are often caused by water seepage or soil movement beneath your home. Structural cracks not only compromise the integrity of your foundation but also provide pathways for water to enter, exacerbating moisture issues.

    TAILOR-MADE SOLUTIONS FOR BASEMENT WATERPROOFING

    SUMP PUMPS

    Sump pump systems are the heart of any proper waterproofing system. They move excess water from beneath the concrete slab (floor) and pump it outside. Sumps operate automatically around the clock so you can sleep easy knowing it’s working hard to keep your basement dry night and day. For even more peace of mind, you can add additional pumps and battery backup pumps for protection during power outages.

    DEHUMIDIFIERS

    Lots of New England basements can benefit from a professional-grade dehumidifier. This can be thought of as a finishing touch to your waterproofing system. Pulling any remaining moisture out of the air, a dehumidifier creates a comfortable environment that combats mold growth and musty odors. Our dehumidifiers operate automatically so you’ll have no more pesky buckets to dump.

    DRAINAGE SYSTEMS

    If the sump is the heart of the waterproofing system, then our Guardian perimeter drain can be considered the veins. Guardian carries water from all corners of the basement to the pump ensuring that the entire basement remains dry. We offer an industry-leading “lifetime of the structure” warranty on our full waterproofing systems. Confidence is key and you can feel confident because we always stand behind our work.
