What is Basement Waterproofing?

Basement waterproofing is the process of installing a system that will prevent water from leaks and flooding. Many homes in Durham have basements, and while they are great for storage space or extra living space, they can be susceptible to water damage.

There are several different ways to waterproof your basement, and the best method will depend on the age and construction of your home, as well as the severity of the problem. The most common methods are exterior waterproofing, interior waterproofing, and French drains.

  • Exterior waterproofing involves sealing the outside of your foundation to prevent water from seeping in. This is often done with a waterproofing membrane or spray-on coating.
  • Interior waterproofing involves installing a drainage system inside your basement to collect and remove the water before it can cause damage.
  • French drains are trenches filled with gravel that are installed around the perimeter of your foundation to collect and redirect water away from your home.

Products Used to Waterproof a Basement

There are a number of different products that can be used to waterproof your basement, including:

  • Sealants: Sealants are applied to the walls and floors of your basement to create a water-resistant barrier.
  • Waterproofing paint: Waterproofing paint can be applied to both the walls and floors of your basement.
  • Dehumidifiers: Dehumidifiers help to remove moisture from the air in your basement, making it less hospitable for mold and mildew.
  • Sump pumps: Sump pumps are installed in basements to pump water out of the space and prevent flooding.

Benefits of Basement Waterproofing

A wet basement can lead to mold growth, which can be dangerous to your health. It can also damage your belongings and make your home difficult to sell. Waterproofing your basement has a number of benefits, including:

  • Preventing water damage: Water in your basement can cause serious damage to your home, including mold and mildew growth, wood rot, and foundation problems.
  • Reducing musty odors: Basement waterproofing can help to eliminate the musty odors that can be caused by dampness and mold growth.
  • Improving your home’s value: A waterproofed basement can improve your home’s resale value by making it more attractive to potential buyers.
  • Making your basement more comfortable: By keeping your basement dry and free of musty odors, you can make it a more comfortable space for family and friends to enjoy.

This company did a great job for me. They cleaned up the mold, removed old insulation, installed new insulation & dehumidifier and made my crawlspace to work efficiently to keep out the moisture and stay dry. I could not be more pleased! Plus every guy they sent out was polite and did good work to get my crawlspace up to snuff. Thanks guys!!
