Sick of dealing with a wet basement?
How does water get into your home?
Water comes from three places.
If you have a water problem, we find that its usually coming from one of three places.
Under your sill plate - You might find water dripping down from the top of your wall. This is one of the most basic repairs where most of the time is simply involves regrading outside your foundation wall so water flows away from the problematic area.
Through the wall - This is the second place we look for water intrusion. There can be cracks in the wall, leaking mortar joints, rusty form ties or even holes. Depending on what type of foundation you have, we determine if you need to dig the particular area out or install a drain tile system. Each foundation is a case by case situation.
Below the slab - The third location is from below the slab. Excess water pressure builds up from below the slab pushing water through cracks and voids in the slab and along the foundation wall. The remedy to this problem usually involves a sump pump or a drain tile system.
