Basement Waterproofing is a blanket term that describes a wide range of processes and techniques to fix leaky or wet basements. Every house is different, and depending on the unique situation of a homeowner, A-1 Indiana Waterproofing will utilize various methods to remedy a wet basement.
By first identifying the source of a leak, we will be able to tailor a solution to your basement's problems. Whether your basement is finished or unfinished, we will take steps to find the source and diagnose your leakage problem, and then proceed with the appropriate remedy.
Common Wet Basement Problems
Hydrostatic (water) pressure is the most common cause of a wet basement. This is the pressure exerted on foundation walls, footings, and basement floors by underground water and is produced by higher water tables, poor soil percolation and/or poor drainage systems adjacent to the structure.
The greater accumulation of underground water, particularly from rain and melting snow, the greater the pressure exerted on foundation walls and floors. A high percentage of foundation cracks and floor cracks are a direct result of hydrostatic pressure. Typically water enters the basement through foundation cracks, floor cracks and/or through the juncture of the floor and walls, however, water can enter the basement from over the top of foundation walls, thought mortar joints, and windows. If not treated, the water will promote deterioration in walls and floors and the basement will remain chronically damp.
A-1 Indiana Waterproofing can solve your basement leakage problems permanently. Diverting water and alleviating the pressure from water can prevent deterioration to foundation walls, footing and doors. Our Interior Drain Tile System uses drain tile and a submersible pump to divert and push water away from the structure preventing future damage and deterioration to foundation walls.
