The Great Lakes have a profound impact on the level of precipitation we receive in any given year, especially in Troy. Located just north of Detroit, Troy can get hammered with snowfall in the winter, which can cause immense water damage to your home once spring comes. Luckily, preventing excessive water damage to your home is just a phone call away.

At StayDry Waterproofing, we strive to provide residents of Troy with the information they need in order to make the best waterproofing decisions. What better way to share this information than with this helpful guide geared specifically toward basement waterproofing in Troy. Before you call for your free consultation, take a moment to learn about flooding and how basement waterproofing solutions can help protect your home and family.

The Problem

A flooded basement can cause severe damage to your home. Water damage, for example, can cause concrete to crack and flake, which can lead to structural damage. Additionally, water damage can create the perfect environment for mold and mildew to flourish. Mold spores in your home can increase your risk for a number of adverse health effects including asthma.

Of course, a flooded basement also puts your personal belongings at risk for water damage. What’s worse is that appliances in your basement, such as a washer and dryer, can short circuit in a basement flood and cause a fire. Luckily, avoiding these dangers is easy when you contact a StayDry hero.

The Solution

The solutions offered by StayDry in Troy, Michigan are of the highest quality to ensure your basement is free of water damage. We offer a wide range of waterproofing services in Troy including:

  • Sump Pump Installation: Sump pumps should be installed at the lowest point of your basement. Any water that seeps into your home will be collected by the sump pump and redirected away from the home.
  • French Drain Systems: Installed below the concrete level around the interior of your foundation, a French drain system collects water that enters the home and helps direct it away from your home. You can even connect a French drain system with a sump pump for increased efficiency.
  • Exterior Basement Waterproofing: Our most extensive, and effective, waterproofing service is our exterior basement waterproofing service. With this, we must expose the exterior of your home’s foundation in order to apply waterproofing to keep water from entering the home.


Obviously, the greatest benefit you have to gain from basement waterproofing in Troy is a safe environment free of water damage. However, there are a number of additional benefits you can reap from a waterproofing system.

For example, when you have a StayDry waterproofing system installed, your home becomes more valuable. If you choose to sell your home, this could make a huge difference on the final bid price. Better yet, all of our interior waterproofing services are backed by our fully transferable lifetime warranty so you never have to worry about costly repairs to your basement waterproofing system.


As you can see, there are a number of reasons to have your basement waterproofed by a StayDry hero. But you don’t have to take our word for it. Check out some testimonials from our previous customers below.

I have tried everything myself to remove mold and the water from my basement, and after 7 years of wasted money(and swallowing my pride) I called StayDry. They were fast, professional, and very family. I had several other quotes, but the feeling of genuine care and concern for me as a person is why I went with them. They were in and out ahead of schedule and did excellent work. I am going to recommend them to all my friends and family. – Rich Mangold

They came earlier than expected and finished sooner than expected. They ALL treated my Mom with the utmost respect. The work turned out great and we expect to have a dry basement from here forward. They cleaned up and took care of the areas of the home that they had to traverse. It could not have gone better. Two thumbs up for sure. Kudos to the crew and Dave for a job well done! – Jim Rossman
