Basement Waterproofing IA

Any type of basement can be affected by water damage. It doesn’t matter if you have a concrete foundation, block walls or a clay tile foundation. Water can enter through the walls of your basement from improper gutters, downspouts, or a poor drainage system. If water gets inside the basement, it lead to a flooded basement or damp crawlspace. Water damage can also cause water stains, mold, salt deposits, or damage to the interior structure of the house. At WCI Foundation Repair, we can inspect your wet basement and offer the best basement waterproofing options for your home.

What causes wet basements?

  1. A wet basement may be caused by poor site preparation. During new construction, the soil may not be properly compacted. This may lead to a sinking foundation or foundation cracks. Foundation cracks allows water to seep into the basement. Overtime, cracks will get worse if they are not repaired.
  2. Wet basements are also caused by improper interior or exterior drainage systems. Having a good drainage system will collect excess water and direct the flow of water away from your foundation.
  3. A leaky plumbing system causes saturated soil. Excess water settles beneath the foundation and causes major foundation damage.
