Hi, I’m Bill
Think you need basement waterproofing?
You’re Probably wondering what you “need” to know about basement waterproofing so you can make an informed decision on what type of waterproofing method will fit your need best.
So let’s just get right into it (I’ll try and spare you the technical mumbo jumbo)
Why is my basement flooding or always damp and stinky?
Good news… it’s not your fault!
Due to common soil circumstances around the Mid-Atlantic region, throughout Delaware, Washington D.C, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Maryland, a majority of houses are inclined to basement waterproofing problems.
So let’s get slightly technical for a moment.
After a downpour of rain, hydrostatic force causes water to penetrate your basement via edges of the foundation, cracked cement ,ground, walls, stairwell areas, window wells and even absorbent concrete.
Bill, why does this happen?
Well, the soil which is dug and filled back again around your basement is capable of taking in lots of water during lengthy rainfall. During precipitation, ground water trails through the pathway of least resistance from the covered clay far away from your home to the loose soil that’s next to your foundation. This generates hydrostatic force that leads to the basement waterproofing issues.
If you have forgotten everything you just read 🙁 then here are some bullet points
Things you need to know:
• Basement leakages are instigated by underground water and hydrostatic force when it rains heavily and during snow melts.
• Basement waterproofing issues are customary in homes around the mid-Atlantic region.
• Basement waterproofing is suggested for underground water-path because foundations for homes aren’t built to be waterproof.
• A one-size-fits-all solution for underground waterproofing is irrelevant here because repairs are distinctive to each home.
Hey Bill…. What’s the solution?
