Basement Waterproofing in Virginia
If your home in Virginia does not have proper basement waterproofing, your home becomes vulnerable to all sorts of problems. These problems include:
- Flooded basement
- Mold and mildew
- Floor or wall cracks
- Stains along walls or floors
Plumbing leaks can lead to a wet basement. As a homeowner make sure to check your sinks, tubs, toilets, and showers to make sure they are working properly and caulked where they should be.
Make sure you have proper working gutters, downspouts and grading directing water away from the house. It is a good idea to check your gutters for debris and blockage a few times a year. Make sure your downspouts are moving water away from your home and don’t have any leaks or breaks. If your downspouts are too short, they may not be getting water far enough away from your foundation, make sure they are at least six feet long.
Exterior Drain System
Your drain may be plugged or not installed improperly. If you do not have an exterior drainage system installed on your property it may be a good idea to consider one.
If your sump pump is not the right size or not in proper working order, you will have basement water problems. In that case the pump can’t remove water from around and below your home. We install sump pumps and battery back up sump pumps to keep your basement dry.
Lack of Interior Drainage
Water pressure from under your slab can cause cracks and water penetration into your living spaces. Let Basement Masters Waterproofing install a sealed interior drainage system.
Wall cracks create a path for water to come into your basement causing water damage. If you see cracks in your home’s basement walls, contact Basement Masters Waterproofing.
