Claymont, DE Basement Waterproofing Systems/French Drain systems
Water leakage in basements is sadly an all too common problem. There can be many places were water can penetrate your foundation and intrude into your living space. In the majority of cases, the fundamental cause behind this issue is hydrostatic pressure. This is the pressure that water builds up as the water table rises and falls in the subterranean soil around your home. Other common problem areas are cracks in your foundation wall and leakage through window wells or pipe penetrations through the foundation.
Many people incorrectly assume that basement waterproofing is simply applying a sealer to your basement walls. However, this only relieves insignificant dampness temporarily and water leakage WILL CONTINUE TO OCCUR. Sealers are ineffective because they do not handle the pressure that water exerts on the foundation. Without a basement waterproofing system that releases the hydrostatic pressure, water problems will not improve, they will only get worse. When considering the hazards that a wet basement can pose to the health of your family, the ability to use the additional basement square footage as a living space and thus increasing your home’s resale value, the choice becomes very simple.
Why waterproof your basement?
Protect your investment
Water intrusion is not only inconvenient, it is erosive. Water penetrating your foundation is creating more damage each time it occurs, and will eventually lead to the failure of your home’s foundation. A subfloor pressure relief system will manage the ground water, and remove it from your home’s foundation before it can cause any further damage, protecting your investment for many years to come.
Remove unhealthy conditions
Wet/damp conditions in your home’s basement or crawlspace leads to a whole host of potential health issues. From infestations of bugs and small animals or snakes, to even more harmful mold colonization. A damp or musty smell in a basement or crawlspace is evidence of mold growth. You are actually smelling the VOC’s created when mold feeds on organic materials such as your floor joists. We will remove these conditions that mold loves and neutralize any growth with our anti-fungal application system.
Add to your homes resale value
Nobody wants to buy a home with a water problem. A damp musty smell is red flag for potential purchasers. Removing this issue will increase interest in your home, when you add in the transferable warranty that we offer, this will increase the re-sale value of your home up to 25%!
