wet basements and basement waterproofing VAIf your home in Virginia does not have proper basement waterproofing, your home becomes vulnerable to all sorts of problems. These problems include:

Water-Related Issues

Plumbing Leaks

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.

Poor Drainage

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.

Sump Pumps

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

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.
