Leaky basements are a common sign of water problems. Water-related problems, such as standing water in your yard and basement water seepage, can eventually lead to mold growth and foundation damage. When water pressure increases, so does the risk of basement leaks. After heavy rainfalls, the soil becomes saturated and creates pressure against the basement walls. Too much pressure causes the walls to crack, bow or lean. Without a proper waterproofing system, water leaks through cracks. If you have a leaky basement in Connecticut, we offer basement waterproofing solutions to keep your foundation safe and stable.
Our experts know how to stop common basement leaks and permanently fix the situation. First, we identify the source of leaks by inspecting the perimeter of the foundation. We check your gutters to make sure they are free of debris and leaves. In addition, we make sure the proper gutter extensions are installed to eliminate water accumulation around the home. If you have wall cracks or foundation cracks, they can be easily be repaired. Since basement windows are susceptible to cracking and wood rot, they are inspected for water leaks.
For serious foundation problems, such as foundation shifting and settlement, we use piers to lift and stabilize the foundation. Regardless of the cause of your leaky basement, we’ll determine the best repair option for your home’s needs.
