Get in touch with our Nashville basement waterproofing professionals right away if you notice any of the following indicators of moisture infiltration:

  • Cracks in your basement’s concrete floor
  • Wood rot

  • Unexplained increases in your power bill
  • Unusually high humidity

What Is Causing Moisture Intrusion in My Basement? 

Basement moisture can be the result of one or more factors, and you must accurately determine the underlying issue before you can implement an effective solution. Our technicians are deeply familiar with the many potential causes of water intrusion and know what to look for. We will thoroughly inspect your property to find the root cause of the problem. 

We are prepared to resolve any of the following causes of basement moisture intrusion:

  • Cracks in the foundation or basement walls
  • Excessive condensation
  • Drainage system issues
  • Foundation walls built below the water table
  • Gutter system problems
  • Ground water entering through floor cracks
  • Hydrostatic pressure
  • Improper slope or grading
  • Leaking window wells

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.

Our team is also cognizant of the reality that basement waterproofing may not be a planned expense. Do not worry: We are happy to offer financing options and will work with you to create a cost-effective plan that addresses your needs while keeping in mind your budget. USS accepts all major credit cards as well as personal checks.

Is Waterproofing My Crawl Space Necessary?

It is practically always in your best interest to proactively waterproof your crawl space even if you do not notice any pressing moisture issues. Getting ahead of a water seepage problem can help avoid the need for costly repairs. There are also warning signs that you should look out for that indicate the need for prompt crawl space waterproofing.

Get in touch with our Mt. Juliet crawl space waterproofing experts if you spot any of the following red flags:

  • Standing water or moisture buildup in your crawl space
  • Presence of mold or mildew in the crawl space
  • Sagging floors or uneven surfaces
  • Cracks in walls or ceilings
  • Musty odors originating in the crawl space
  • Insect infestations, such as termites or carpenter ants, in the crawl space
  • High humidity levels inside the home
  • Increased energy bills due to inefficient heating and cooling caused by air leaks from the crawl space

What Does Crawl Space Waterproofing Entail?

The exact features of a crawl space waterproofing solution will depend on several factors, including the size of the crawl space, the features of the building, and the extent of any existing moisture damage. Crawl space waterproofing typically involves a combination of measures designed to prevent water damage in the crawl space as well as remove existing moisture. One of our professionals will conduct a thorough inspection of your crawl space before developing a tailored plan specific to your building’s unique needs. 

Features of a crawl space waterproofing system may include:

  • Sump pumps. Sump pumps, a key component of any crawl space waterproofing system, are generally installed in a designated sump pit within the crawl space, where they can collect water that has entered through foundation cracks or other sources. When the water level in the pit reaches a certain height, the pump is activated and begins pumping water out of the crawl space and away from the home. Some sump pumps may also be equipped with battery backups or alarms to ensure that they continue working even during power outages or other emergencies.
  • Perimeter drains. Perimeter drains help to channel water away from your building’s foundation and prevent it from seeping into the crawl space. These drains are typically installed around the interior perimeter of the crawl space foundation walls. They may be constructed using a variety of materials, including PVC piping, gravel or crushed stone, and filter fabric. Some perimeter drains are designed to collect water and direct it to a sump pump, which then pumps it out and away from the home. Others may simply allow water to flow away from the foundation and into a designated drainage area. Our technicians can recommend the best type of perimeter drain for your situation.
  • Dehumidifiers. Dehumidifiers remove excess moisture from the air and prevent it from condensing on surfaces in the crawl space. This can be particularly important in humid climates or in homes where there is a lot of moisture present. By reducing the amount of humidity in the air, dehumidifiers can help reduce mold and mildew growth, wood rot, insect infestations, and other problems associated with excess moisture. We can advise you on whether a dehumidifier is necessary and recommend a model that will adequately service your crawl space.
  • Vapor barriers. Vapor barriers are typically made from a thick plastic material that is installed over the ground surface of the crawl space, as a complement to an interior drain system. This barrier acts as added protection against moisture from the damp earth below. Our Mt. Juliet crawl space waterproofing experts can advise you on whether a vapor barrier is necessary, and, if so, recommend the best type of material.

Excess moisture infiltration can cause serious consequences that impact the habitability of your home or business, so do not wait to explore your basement waterproofing options. Contact us online or call (615) 307-9510 to discuss your situation with us today.
