What Causes Water In My Basement?
- Cracked walls
- High water table
- Improper yard drainage
- Improper gutter drainage
Basement Interior Drain
The most common repair when you find water coming into your home is to install a basement interior drain system. We do this by installing a trench that is pitched towards a sump pump or gravity feed to discharge the water outside of the home and away from the foundation. A drainage system is placed within the trench to capture water coming from the wall or footing. Once installed the water is directed into our system and discharged away from the home guaranteeing a dry basement. This process is minimally invasive and takes between 1 to 2 days to complete.
“Our waterproofing system has been through many storms over the past two years, including the latest torrential rains from Hurricane Sally. Our basement has been bone dry each time, and I’ve seen a ton of water coming out of the drain in the yard, so we know the sump pump is doing it’s job.” – James Mullin
Exterior Foundation Waterproofing
Exterior Foundation Waterproofing is done from the outside of the home. We start by excavating down to the footing level of the foundation. We then seal the walls and footing with our waterproofing membrane and drainage board. Our drainage board relieves the wall from hydrostatic pressure. Lastly, we install our drainage system below the footing to direct the water away from the foundation and backfill to grade level.
Sewer / Waterline Leak
Our waterproofing specialist often find that the water issue is a much simpler fix then what the customer thinks. A sewer or waterline leak could be the root of the problem. When a home is being built a plumber usually installs both the sewer and waterline without sealing around the plumbing. This issue takes about an hour to fix and a fraction of the cost a traditional basement repair.
Basement Crack Injections
Another cause of water entering your basement could be from cracks on the floor or walls. These cracks show up do to the foundation settling over time. Hydrostatic pressure forces water through these cracks and into your basement. Our waterproofing specialist will inject these cracks completely blanketing the inside of the crack. After having Tri-State Waterproofing come fix your water problem you will receive a transferable lifetime warranty.
