Wet Basement

Do you have a wet basement?  Is it finished or unfinished?  I hear so many times that people are afraid to do something about a damp basement just because it is finished.  The problem with this is that the problem only gets worse.  I have been in homes and repaired basements that had huge theaters and I have done your average every day basements also.  The point I am trying to make is that if you have a wet basement you really should do something about it no matter what.  Luckily there is a real solution for a wet basement. 

A wet basement can mean a few things.  It could be as simple as a few crack repairs or as complex as, what is known in the industry as, a basement break out.  Either way if your lower level has dry wall up it would be a good idea to remove a portion of that to inspect behind it.  Fixing a basement crack is a lot less invasive as the other option.  If it is a crack we will find it and inject it with a 2-part epoxy.  We drill in every 6 inches and place inserts to inject it from the inside out to make sure it never leaks again. 

If your wet basement has water coming up on the floor near where the floor meets the wall it typically is hydrostatic pressure.  This can only be fixed by redirecting the water to a pump.  You may very well have a system already set up that we can tap into.  At some point your system failed, most likely to a broken drain tile and it needs to be replaced.  Concrete Crawlspaces and Basement Waterproofing are experts when it comes to basement break outs and would love to help you resolve your problem.  Please apply today and get a free estimate from Concrete Crawlspaces and Basement Waterproofing.
