Frequently Asked Questions

Our Basement Waterproofing FAQ's will answer the most common questions you may have and help solve your wet basement problems.

Why does my basement get wet after heavy rainfall?
Almost all water enters your basement due to poor grading around the foundation walls on the exterior of your home.
How can I stop it?
Hire a qualified contractor to pinpoint your problem areas outside your home and find reasonable, affordable solutions.
Why work outside?
The exterior is the "ROOT" of the problem and should be considered.
Why not an indoor sump system?
Indoor systems companies never consider "WHY" your basement leaks. They use an electrical pump to pump out water out AFTER it has already entered underneath your basement's floor. If it fails, and they often do, the water is ready and waiting to reenter your basement and soak your carpet, sheetrock, and furniture again because the ACTUAL PROBLEM may never have been considered.
