100+ Years of Basement Waterproofing and Crawl Space Experience

Cereal City, otherwise known as Battle Creek, Michigan, has a history of flooding. This is not uncommon in Michigan since the state is bordered by three of the Great Lakes: Huron, Michigan, and Erie.

With the risk of flooding comes an increased possibility of the adverse effects associated with water damage. Mold and mildew grow in damp, wet, and dark areas, making a flooded basement a haven for these health dangers. Structural damage can also be caused by water damage.

To prevent these dangers you should be sure to have your Battle Creek basement waterproofed before it floods next.

Year-Round Climate

Much like the rest of Michigan, Battle Creek has a continental climate that is extremely humid. While the city receives its fair share of snow during the cold winter months, the majority of the precipitation comes in the summer.

With moisture accumulating year-round, Battle Creek homes are often put at risk for flooding and water damage. To prevent this from happening to your home, we recommend having your basement waterproofed by the experts here at StayDry.

Stay Dry Services in Battle Creek

We understand how devastating it can be to have personal belongings damaged or destroyed because of water damage in a leaky basement. This is one of the reasons we offer our basement waterproofing services to the residents in the Battle Creek area. Some of the services you can take advantage of are:

  • Sump Pumps: If you have water seeping into your basement often, a sump pump can collect it and pump it out away from your home.
  • French Drain Systems: One of our most popular services is the French drain system. Much like the sump pump, a French drain system collects water and moves it away from your home. You can even connect it to a sump pump for greater efficiency.
  • Crack Injection: Foundation cracks can be a sign of structural concern and also a way for water to work its way into the home. We can fill these cracks easily.

  • My wife and I are buying a home that has water in the basement. It was built in 1933 and has been a rental for a while. The house is empty and we want to get a quote for repairs. We are located in Battle Creek, MI.
  • I see water seeping through my basement wall where the septic pipe goes out and there is a small sink hole next to the foundation on the outside at about the same location.
  • We have a crack in the poured concrete foundation basement wall that leaks when it rains. Also have leakage around our well pipe.
  • Concrete block walls in an unfinished basement (1955 construction) have signs of efflorescence and one wall has small leaks that weep into the basement in recent rain. I would like to meet with someone to review the conditions and discuss exterior and interior treatment options.

Causes of Basement Water

Water can come into your home in many different ways. It can come over the top of basement walls, through cracks and tie rod holes, and through leaky pipes or drains. When there is too much water outside of your home for your drain systems to handle, it can’t find itself running away from the home, so it runs into your home through waterlogged concrete, overflowing drains, or even from rising groundwater.

No matter the cause, water in the basement is extremely dangerous to your home and even your health. The best way to handle water in your basement is by calling a StayDry expert. We can handle all of the problems that you can throw at us by repairing foundations by filling cracks or patching leaks, waterproofing to prevent any problems in the future, or installing drainage systems to keep pressure off of your walls by keeping water away in the first place.

Repair Services

When water or stress has damaged the foundation of your home, we also have services to help reverse this damage. We offer foundational repair, when a simple crack injection just won’t do the job. We can also straighten walls, brace walls and ceilings with steel brace reinforcements, and do fortress stabilization. We can also do as much as replacing an entire basement wall.

Crack injection is one of our most common solutions for waterproofing. We inject a polyurethane solution into the space to keep water out and prevent widening of the crack.
