Common Problems Requiring Basement Waterproofing in Ames, IA

As an Ames homeowner, you’re familiar with the potential for severe flooding. Being prepared with a comprehensive waterproofing system is the best way to prepare for severe weather. 

Without an effective waterproofing system in place, some of the most common basement water problems you could be facing include:

  • Flooding and Water Pooling – Caused by an excess of rainwater, river flooding, and high water tables in the soil around your home.
  • Damp or Humid Basement – Basement moisture, condensation, or leakage, leads to increased basement humidity and dampness.
  • Leaky Basement – Combination of foundation cracks in your home and water seepage due to large amounts of ground or surface water outside.
  • Mold and Mildew Growth – Due to damp, humid conditions in the basement and often occurs in the crawl space or other small, poorly ventilated areas.

You don’t want to deal with any of these issues. Beyond the hassle of removing water and cleaning up following flooding, serious structural damage can occur.

You may absolutely use me as a reference!”
