Basement Waterproofing

For a homeowner, a wet basement is a nightmare. The thing which appears to be a tiny crackle might be a warning of much bigger problems. Any moisture in the basement can cost you to spend a lot both with regard to time and money. Water in the basement is a bigger problem from structural damage to toxic mold. Before getting into the solution, we first need to see what causes moisture in the basement. Basements are prone to moisture because of their unique construction. If rainwater and underground water is not drained properly, they can find their way to the basement.

The soil of low quality and improper drainage systems are one of the popular causes of basement wetness. Gutters are supposed to take water away from home. However, poor installation of gutters clogged to function, and water starts to gather around your foundation. Any cracks in the walls, floors, and windows are the perfect spot for the water to enter and moisture to enter. Basements are usually damp places and if condensation occurs, it can bring a lot of damage.

Interior waterproofing is one of the easiest and most affordable methods. It begins with the process of making sure that all the cracks in the basement are properly sealed. Special sealants are used to fill up all the cracks so that water does not find its way back here. This method of filling up the cracks also keeps the humidity level down and creates a barrier. With this, it is also important to look outside your basement. Exterior waterproofing requires the excavation of the soil that is surrounding the foundation. This can be an extensive process that requires tools and heavy machinery. Along with that, it is also important to keep all the drainage systems and gutters clean.

I have used Ground Zero Home Inspections for two of my properties.  As an investor, it's not easy to get a full understanding of what we are facing considering we are out of the state of the true repair condition of the homes we are prospecting. Their professionalism, knowledge, thoroughness, and fast response are second to none. I have used Ground Zero Home Inspections services for my home and business. Great job and inspectors.

I am very pleased with the service I received, from the initial contact with your personnel to the technicians that handled my problems. It is great to deal with a company that values its customers. The report looked to be scary but that was apparently due to my inexperience with the project.  They were able to find the right company for us. Thanks.
