Signs of Basement Water Problems

Signs of Basement Water Problems

Water seepage occurs when hydrostatic pressure in the ground under your basement or against the foundation seeps through any cracks/openings it can find. Water takes the path of least resistance so if you have weak walls, floors, or windows, the water will find its way in eventually.

When you get water into your home, it can cause a variety of problems throughout the entire structure. Some of these problems include:

  • Wood rot
  • Rust
  • Musty odors
  • High humidity
  • High energy bills
  • Mold and mildew
  • Loss of personal possessions
  • Loss of living space
  • Loss of home’s value

Let the experts at Basement Masters Waterproofing evaluate your home and offer you the waterproofing solution to fit your needs. We will always listen to all your concerns and answer any questions you may have about the process and the future of your home.

Solutions for Water Seepage in Northern Virginia

Basement Masters Waterproofing has several solutions for water seepage in your Northern Virginia home. Some of the solutions that we offer for this problem include:

  • Interior drainage systems – This will take excess water away from where it is currently pooling around or under your home. It is done by installing a drain pipe along the interior footings of your home, where it is then attached to a sump pump and drained away from your basement.
  • Exterior drainage systems – This method involves installing a perforated drain pipe along the exterior of the home. This drain pipe is also attached to the sump pump to direct any water away from the foundation.
  • Wall crack repair
  • Water management systems
  • Sump pumps – This device pumps water from the sump pit to an area away from the basement and foundation. We even offer a battery back-up sump pump that will turn on in case of a power outage where the primary sump pump won’t work.
  • Basement waterproofing
  • Crawl space recovery
