If you are a homeowner experiencing a wet basement or have noticed water leaking in through cracks in your wall, then you may be in need of a professional basement waterproofing contractor. Our team has been helping homeowners solve their basement waterproofing problems for years. Our waterproofers are expertly trained to help diagnose your basement seepage issues, and help find the best solution to any problem.
Our waterproofers use a variety of technologies to help mitigate water seepage in your basement. Most often we install a basement drainage system. Having a reliable basement drainage system will save you the trouble of having to deal with a flooded basement. They are responsible for evacuating and preventing the spread of water in your basement. It does this by channeling any excess water that is entering the basement away from the home. In addition to this, we install sump pumps which are a critical component to removing excess water. Sump Pumps take incoming water and pump it away from the basement.
Not all issues with basement seepage are caused by interior issues. Our team can help evaluate any leaks in your foundation interior and exterior and will help you find the best solution.

Top Causes Of Basement Leaks
Basement Wall Cracks
Cracks in your basement wall can be one of the most serious issues when it comes to leaking basements. Our team can evaluate what caused the crack as well as seal the existing crack. This can not only help prevent the crack from leaking but identifying the cause of the crack can help us keep issues from happening in the future.
The most likely cause of cracks is called hydrostatic pressure. When it rains, water flows and drains downhill. This means it could be building up in the soil against your home. At the bottom of your basement wall, a reservoir of wet dirt and pressure builds up, pushing the water against your wall and either find existing cracks or creates new ones.
Cove Joint Seapage
The process of digging and creating foundation walls results in an unsecured bond between the footing of your basement and the basement walls. The joint between the wall and the floor in your basement is known as a cove joint. This is one of the most common points of water seepage in basements. Hydrostatic pressure due to the buildup of rainwater at the base of your foundation can cause water to find its way between the basement footer and the wall.
Our technicians can handle this issue by installing a proper basement drainage system in addition to installing a sump pump. The combination of these two can effectively evacuate the water from your basement keeping your basement dry and ready to use.
Mortar Joint Leak
Most homes in Ohio were built with basement walls constructed out of cinder blocks rather than poured concrete. For these walls locating the leak can be a bit more challenging. Over time the mortar between the bricks can deteriorate causing cracks and holes in the wall where water can seep in.
Our team is specially equipped to find and fix these mortar leakage issues. When the mortar breaks down it can be hard to tell where the water is coming from. This is due to the fact that the water is seeping in from the outside and moving in the empty cavity of the block.
