Basement Waterproofing, Explained
Several techniques are used to waterproof basements and prevent unwanted water and moisture from making their way into your home or commercial building. Generally, you will need to consider either an interior drain system or an exterior water management system. Both are dependable options, but the nature of your property and its moisture issues will determine the optimal approach. After evaluating your property’s needs, we will advise which solution is best.
Interior Drain Systems, Explained
Hydrostatic pressure is often to blame for a wet basement. An interior drain system can keep moisture from damaging your home by redirecting groundwater to a low point. A sump pump will then remove it through a discharge line. These systems are often ideal for homeowners with unfinished or finished basements.
External Water Management Systems, Explained
Alternatively, you can partially resolve problematic hydrostatic pressure by directing water away from your basement with an exterior drain system. An external water management system keeps water away from the foundation via a strategic combination of water-diverting pipes, waterproof liners, and gravel-filled trenches. This approach may be combined with an interior drain system for the ultimate protection for any basement, finished or unfinished.
Crawl Space Encapsulation, Explained
Not all homes necessarily have a basement. Instead, your property may have a crawl space, which functions like a basement but has a dirt floor and is exposed to the elements. This makes it especially susceptible to water penetration, which can lead to mold growth, high power bills, and other habitability concerns.
You will likely need to take steps to waterproof your crawl space with an interior drain system just like you would a regular basement. Crawl space encapsulation, while not a waterproofing method, is a proven method that effectively seals the area and keeps water from getting inside. If you are not sure where your crawl space is or if you need to be worried about it, we are prepared to provide tailored guidance.
How Much Will Waterproofing My Basement Cost?
There is no easy way to predict how much it will cost to waterproof a basement, as the cost will vary based on the size and specific needs of your property. We do not throw out potentially inaccurate guesses based on the layout of your home. Instead, we will come to you, assess your basement, and review what we think it needs to resolve existing water damage and avoid future problems. We operate at the highest levels of integrity and will never attempt to sell you a repair or solution your basement does not need. We will help you understand why the solution is what the solution is as well as what goes into determining its cost. Remember, our Mt. Juliet basement waterproofing services come with a transferable guarantee, most with a lifetime warranty, and you will never be asked to pay until the job is completed.
