Basements and crawl spaces are two of the most vulnerable parts of your property, making waterproofing very important for your property’s longevity. Water in your basement can come from many different sources such as cracks in the foundation walls, hydrostatic pressure, poor drainage due to grading, or leaking window wells.
Why waterproof your basement or crawlspace? When you protect your basement, you protect your family, staff, and customers from harm. Wet basements and crawlspaces are the leading cause of indoor air quality problems. Mold, mildew, and radon can penetrate your home through your foundation and cause severe health issues. Furthermore, water from floods contains harmful bacteria and viruses that can make your family sick.

What Causes Water Seepage?
While heavy rainfall is one of the most common causes of water seepage, improper downspouts or clogged gutters and window wells that allow water to accumulate around your home’s foundation can also cause seepage. In addition, improper grading around your home can also be a cause. Your property may be more susceptible to water seepage if:
✅ Your foundation was built on expansive clay
✅ Your foundation was built on improperly compacted fill soils
✅ Your foundation has poor drainage around its exterior
✅ Your home is in an area with extreme seasonal changes
✅ Your home experienced a plumbing leak beneath the foundation
✅ Tree roots are growing too close to your home
✅ An act of nature (earthquake, flood or drought) compromised the foundation structure
✅ Your homes is positioned above underground rivers and streams, which is very common on Long Island
What are the indications that Waterproofing is needed?
Just as there are many causes of water seepage, there are many signs that your basement or crawl space needs waterproofing. Here are the most common signs of water seepage:
✅ Water puddles in the basement
✅ Water stains on the floor and/or walls
✅ Leaks coming from the floor and/or walls
✅ Condensation on basement windows and doors
✅ Swelling or warped doors
✅ Smell of dampness that doesn’t go away
✅ Visual confirmation of mold or mildew
