The annual rainfall is approximately 47 inches in Newport News, VA with the wettest seasons being spring and summer. With the higher amounts of rainfall, the soils around your home’s structure can start to erode and weaken, making your foundation start to crack or bow. Poor waterproofing, overloading, excessive organic materials in the soil, or changes in the moisture content can all lead to these issues that cause you to need foundation repair and basement waterproofing.
Make sure that all your gutters are cleaned out and your rain spouts are working properly. If they don’t work correctly, water could be getting dumped directly into your basement. When the water leaves your rain spouts, it shouldn’t come back towards your house. If it does, you better fix that before the problem gets worse and you have a flooded basement.
We install and repair sump pumps. We will make sure your sump pump is working and up to date before you receive those heavy rain falls. If you are in need of an exterior drainage system or interior drainage system, we will inspect your home to see if it has had any previous basement waterproofing done before. If it has, we will make sure that it was done properly and if not, we’ll fix it. If you don’t have any waterproofing in place, we will install and waterproof your home like it should have been done.
