Waterproofing FAQs

Why do I need basement waterproofing?

Without basement waterproofing, your space can more easily become wet or flooded when it storms. A wet basement can ruin your belongings, but it can cause much more serious problems as well. It can lead to mold and structural damage that impacts your entire home and can even cause health issues for you and your family.

What are the signs of a wet basement or crawlspace?

Water on the floor is the most obvious warning sign that you have a wet basement problem—but you should also look out for the following indicators:

  • Mold
  • Musty smell
  • Peeling paint or wallpaper
  • A powdery substance on the walls
  • Water stains
