Whether you use your basement for storage, a man cave, or as a spare room, waterproofing is vital to the longevity of any items stored in said basement. Water moves easily through masonry and stone, depositing unsightly streaks of salt on the surface of un-treated masonry.
Additionally, your basement walls may have water stains, mold growth, instances in which the wall covering or paint coating adhesion properties have failed, and a lovely musty odor reminiscent of the bayou persists.
If you have any water related issues in your basement, the time has come to give Rush Plumbing & Rooter a call. Any moisture in your basement is problematic, not only for the items stored in the basement, but also to the structural integrity of the walls and slab foundation.
There are several factors that could lead to a damp basement. Water seeps through the tightest of joints, down the back sides of walls, through brick itself. Half of the basement waterproofing battle is the investigative process that goes into to finding the source of the excess water. Most times it is easy enough to find, but there are those situations that require in-depth vetting before the application of waterproofing system can be completed.
After the source of the leak has been discovered and remedied, there are a few options in waterproofing. Most are liquid applied systems that either works to make the masonry in the affected area “waterproof” or “sealed.” After we have conclusively gone over the available options and have identified the best course of action for your project’s needs, a member of our high skilled team will explain the scope of work in detail and try to be as accommodating to your schedule as possible.
Do not wait until it is too late. The best way to prevent flood damage is to prevent the means by which water enters the space. Make an investment in your home. Find the source of potentially hazardous moisture before it causes a mold infestation requiring tenting and an unplanned stay at the nearest hotel.
Rush Plumbing & Rooter is also capable of exterior waterproofing, including any trenching and shoring needed for projects completion.
