Basement Waterproofing Solutions for Cleveland Area Homeowners
Are your basement walls wet, cracked or musty?
Signs You May Need Basement Waterproofing
Unattended damp basements can lead to much larger problems such as mold and mildew, structural damage and health problems. The following are signs that you may want to call a professional to discuss basement waterproofing solutions:
- wet or damp basement walls
- wet or damp basement floor
- condensation on basement windows
- crystalline deposits
- musty odors
- sump pump issues
These problems are not always a result of leaky pipes or cracks in your foundation. Older homes were sometimes constructed poorly, allowing moisture to seep through basement walls or windows. In order to find the best solution to your problem, we highly recommend having a professional determine the source of the water in your basement.
Basement Waterproofing Solutions
Restore Comfort in Your Basement
Invisible Excavation’s complete basement waterproofing systems can help restore a dry, comfortable, odor-free environment in your basement. In addition to sump pump repairs and installations, we also provide interior and exterior basement waterproofing.
Every home and leaky situation is unique, which is why we don’t offer a “one size fits all” basement waterproofing solution. After personally investigating the situation, we’ll walk you through a discussion of your options and provide an honest estimate for the job.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing Solutions
The safest and most effective way to keep your basement free of water is exterior waterproofing. With interior methods, water is still allowed to enter your basement. It is simply redirected to something like a sump pump. The existence of moisture can lead to problems with air purity, humidity and mold.
Listed below are just a few examples of exterior basement waterproofing solutions:
Install a new drainage system
After digging a trench around your home’s foundation, we install a drainage system that will direct water away from your home and keep it from entering your basement.
Properly clean and extend downspouts away from your home’s foundation
If your home’s gutters and downspouts were not installed properly, every time it rains the water could be collecting around your home’s foundation. We will clean your gutters and downspouts and make sure that the system is reworked to properly direct water away from your home.
Properly divert the water collected by your sump pump away from your home’s foundation
Your sump pump should discharge water downhill, far away from your home. If it is pumped out too close to your home, the water could seep back into your home’s foundation. We will fix the length of your sump pump discharge line or, if possible, connect it to your home’s main sewer line carrying water away from the home.
