Minneapolis Basement Waterproofing
How To Hire A Waterproofing Contractor
1. HIRE A PROFESSIONAL with the experience, crew, and equipment to tackle the moisture problems from the outside in, the AAA Reick’s Way.
“Keep the Water OUTSIDE Where It Belongs!”
We SOLVE the problem.
- Interior drain tile systems are limited, marketed in a “one-size-fits-all” approach. If there is an internal failure of the pump, even just a power failure, your basement will get soaked yet again. Your walls and corners will still be wet, deteriorate further and continue to generate mold.
- We DON’T come inside and tear up your concrete, move your stairs or disconnect your downstairs utilities.
We Accomplish Our Goals From the Outside!
2. FIND OUT HOW THE WATER GETS IN. Before you call a basement waterproofing company, take a few minutes to walk around in the
basement. Identify the specific areas you know get wet.
- If currently dry, look for discolored walls with crusty white hard water deposits closer to the floor, (especially corners).
- Carpet is moldy, mushy; wall framing damp and/or stained.
- Look for cracks in foundation walls, visible in unfinished basements or if damaged sheetrock has been removed.
3. EXAMINE THE OUTSIDE PERIMETER OF YOUR HOME, about 6 feet out. Examine the way water drains. Any landscaping not draining correctly?
Water ALWAYS Flows Downhill
- A common problem spot is landscape mulch or decorative rock that hides the fact that underneath, the soil tips down toward the house.
- Are concrete sidewalks and other paved surfaces broken, cracked or tipping toward the house?
- Is the problem farther out in the yard, perhaps a large tree mounded up at the base, or a high spot that forces the water back toward the house?
- How about a retaining wall on the property line? Is it too close to your foundation?
4. LOOK FOR SOMEONE WHO IS LICENSED, BONDED AND INSURED, not some fly-by-night operation. We have lived our entire lives in the Minneapolis area and proud members of the:
- Better Business Bureau.
- Angie’s List
- M.L.N.A. to mention a few organizations we belong to.
