Waterproof your Basement this Spring

Waterproof your Basement this Spring

Spring is here and with the warming weather comes rain, melted snow and potential flooding. Almost every Utah basement has foundation cracks that allow water to enter, creating one or more of the following problems:

  • The presence of mold or mildew.

  • Damp, humid air or musty smell.

  • Moisture on foundation walls, trickling water.

  • Pooling or standing water.

  • Condensation on walls or floor.

  • Rotting wood.

  • Damp carpet or wood floors.

  • Staining or blistering of basement wall covering.

 

Home Foundation Crack Repair

If you notice any of the above signs of water in your basement, Utah Foundation Crack Repair may be required. Even small hairline foundation cracks can allow water to penetrate your basement causing mold, mildew and water damage.

Interwest Piering and Concrete Lifting professionals injects a polyurethane sealings system into both small and large cracks in foundation. This polyurethane is designed to expand and contract while preventing damaging water from continuing to enter your home.

Basement Drainage Systems

In some cases, water may be rising from subsurface water levels. These homes may need to install a complete basement drainage system in addition to foundation crack repairs. A Utah home drainage system is designed to collect water in your basement and pump it out and away from your home.
