Finding a Waterproofing System that Meets Your Needs: Basement Waterproofing Maryland
It is important to recognize that every home in different geographical areas have different soil types, different foundation types, and different levels of water saturation. So do you think every home needs a one-size-fits-all approach to basement waterproofing?
We don’t think so either. There are a number of different issues ranging from foundation cracks that leak, structural foundation cracks, musty and damp basements, basement seepage and poor exterior drainage. The problem is that these issues don’t always occur at the same time, meaning some homeowners are potentially wasting valuable time and money utilizing an expansive, all-in-one approach rather than a custom-tailored one.
Say for example your basement is seeping through your basement floor, but your basement walls have been nothing but dry for the last 30 years. Although conditions can and do change over time due to a variety of factors (wall deterioration, water table level, structural shifting due to frost heave), it’s safe to say that in this case we can go with an approach that addresses the water INSIDE your basement floor, or interior drains and sump pump installation. This honest, custom tailored approach provides you exactly what you need, while saving you THOUSANDS of dollars!
On the other hand, your floor has a working drainage and sump pump system that was installed when the home was built, but your walls are beginning to become discolored and damp, you may have an issue where water is not properly draining away from your foundation outside, requiring an exterior drainage system.
Whichever problem your home is experiencing it, make sure you take steps to educate yourself, so you are more confident that you are making the right choice for your home.
