Recurring leaks in your basement walls, floors, or ceiling are a hassle to clean up and create a damp environment that serves as a breeding ground for mold and wood rot.

Mold growth can seriously damage your basement walls, your possessions, and even your indoor air quality. Not to mention, a home with a wet basement becomes much more difficult to sell. In fact, a wet basement is one of the most serious "red flags" that deters buyers and lowers your home's value.

There are literally dozens of types of repairs when it comes to protecting your home against water damage, but not all repair options are created equal. If you're experiencing water intrusion issues in your home, take the time to research the options and the pros and cons of some of the most common types of home waterproofing methods.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Basement condensation occurs when arm, moist air comes in contact with your cool basement walls and floor.

Warm outside air is drawn into the basement like a vacuum and when it comes into contact with the cool, basement air, that is when condensation occurs.

  • Yes, you can take it with you. It is also very light weight

  • Efflorescence- it is a mineral deposit left behind after water or moisture was present

  • New construction waterproofing is often completed with no or a minimal warranty. There are different ways in which it can be waterproofed but the most common way is through a spray on sealant on the walls which can be damaged when the soil is backfilled around the house and/or can crack when the house moves or shifts. Also, exterior drain tile is commonly installed. Since the tile is sitting in the dirt, it can often become silted closed or damaged during the backfill process.

  • Thrasher/Midwest provides solutions with long-term warranties. Considerations include the type of waterproofing system you install and the type of sump system you install. There are different options that offer different levels of protection.

  • If you think your basement is going to flood, you should remove any finished materials that you believe the water will come in contact with. Also, make sure nothing is on the floor.
