Basement Waterproofing is a general term that describes the range of services performed to fix leaky basements. We often get inquiries as to “How much does it cost to waterproof my basement?” That is the equivalent of taking your car into a dealer and asking, “How much will it cost to fix my car?” The answer is generally, “It depends on what is needed”.
The first step in basement waterproofing is to identify the source of the leak. This can usually be accomplished by consulting with the homeowner to determine how, when, and where the problem occurs. If the basement is unfinished, diagnosis is much easier because water leaves a trail. Rest assure, however, as our Estimators are also well trained to help you find the source of the problem in a finished basement.
Here is a basement with common seepage issues. The wall on the left is a masonry wall, commonly made of block, brick or stone. The wall on the right is a poured concrete wall, identified because it is solid (poured in one piece). Click on the word which points to your basement’s problem area (mortar joint, sump pump, window well, over top of foundation, foundation wall crack, tie rod, pipe penetration, porous concrete, cove joint, floor drain, floor crack) for an explanation and the services we offer to correct it.
