A leaky basement can cause you to lose living space, personal possessions, and your home’s structural integrity. Having a wet basement also contributes to mold and mildew problems, insect problems, and poor air quality. The cause of a leaky basement is the build-up of surface and subsurface water around the foundation which eventually finds its way through the joints and cracks in the basement walls or floors.
A leaky basement can cause several problems throughout the entire home. Some of these problems include deterioration and damage to the interior structure, electrical-mechanical systems, and personal possessions. Leaks can also lead to cracks and other damage to floors, walls, and ceilings. Finally, a wet basement can cause air quality problems related to high humidity, mold and mildew, and musty odors.

Basement Masters Waterproofing has a number of solutions for a leaky basement. The solutions that we offer will keep your basement safe and dry for many years to come. The waterproofing options that we offer are:
Interior and exterior drainage systems involve installing a perforated pipe either next to the interior or exterior footings and then attaching the pipe to a sump pump system that drains the water away from the basement and foundation.
If a wall crack is causing your leaky basement, our Crack Crew uses epoxy injection to fill the cracks and stop the leaking. This not only stop the leaks but it also strengthens the crack from future leakage and keeps the crack from getting any larger.
Another cost-effective option for a leaky basement is carbon fiber repair. We partner with Emecole and Fortress Stabilization Systems and use Carbon Fiber/Kevlar technology. This will prevent water from entering the basement.
If you are having a problem with a damp or leaky crawl space, we provide full-service repairs from crawl space encapsulation to installing dehumidifiers.
