The wet basement waterproofing inspection is very thorough
- If the water is coming from the top of the wall, we look at the grading outside and to see if there’s flashing were the top of the foundation meets the beginning of the framing of the house.
- If the water is coming in through a window well we look to see why the window well is draining and why the water is leaking into the house.
- If there’s evidence of water at the bottom of the hollow block wall we look to see how the water is getting into the blocks and how many areas it’s affecting
- If there is a crack in the poured concrete wall and we see evidence of water there, we look to see if that crack can be patched from both the inside and from the outside. We also check to see if the crack can be filled to prevent water intrusion
- Okay so now we have determined what your foundation is made of and how the water is getting in. There are many different solutions for these different problems and they all have different prices
Sometimes a wet basement just needs a simple crack repair. Sometimes a sump pump is called for. Sometimes it’s a full French drain and sump pump. Every basement is different, every leak is different.
