Dangers Of A Leaky Basement
A leaky basement is a homeowner’s nightmare. It can cause expensive water damage and mold. Even if the leak seems small and slow, the longer it’s left untreated, the more damage it will create. It’s important to know when a basement leaks, it is not necessarily the fault of the builder but most likely a combination of time and forces of nature. At StayDry® we understand the frustration of a leaky basement. We have been offering basement waterproofing to the Michigan area since 2006. And since then we have expanded our services to crawl space repair, mold control, sump pumps installation and more.
How To Fix A Leaky Basement
If you have any wetness in your basement at all, you need to find a solution to solve the leaks before it becomes a bigger issue. The solution for your home depends on the source of the water. Here are some of the most common solutions to fix a leaky basement.
- Add A Gutter Extension: If your home’s downspouts are dumping water less than 5 feet from your house, then it needs to be moved further away to avoid water coming back into the home.
- Install A French Drains: A french drain is a sloped trench filled with gravel that diverts water away from your basement.
- Sump pump: A sump pump can be installed in your basement to pump built up water outside.
StayDry® offers all of the services above so once the issue is targeted, we can get started on waterproofing your home. You may be tempted to try to waterproof your home yourself but that is a risky and often temporary solution. Instead, consider StayDry® to professionally and permanently fix your leaky basement. We offer a free consultation so we can assess the situation before you make any decisions. If you are worried about the price of a professional waterproofing service, we offer lifetime warranties on most of our products and services. So when you hire us you know you will be protected through whatever comes next.
