Located near Saginaw Bay and Lake Huron, the residents of Bay City are familiar with lake effect weather — the city receives 32 inches of rain and 41 inches of snow per year, on average!
With so much moisture trapped in the soil, Bay City basements are exposed to hydrostatic pressure. Wet, leaky basements and flooding are common and create costly issues for homeowners.
To protect their homes from the dangers of water damage, Bay City homeowners should invest in professional waterproofing services.

Crack injection repair. Basement wall cracks are not uncommon but should be addressed promptly to stop water from seeping in and creating further issues. At StayDry®, we fill up and seal cracks to prevent moisture and dangerous gasses like radon from entering your basement. Unlike DIY solutions that only work for a short period of time, our crack injection system comes with a lifetime guarantee.
Sump pump installation and repair. Worried about flooding? A sump pump will automatically remove water from your crawl space or basement if it starts to flood. Our high-quality cast iron sump pumps are designed specifically for our homeowners by Richtech Industries and are some of the most energy-efficient sump pumps on the market.
French drain systems. French drain systems ensure proper drainage by redirecting groundwater away from your house. These waterproofing systems have a long history, and at StayDry® we use a modern adaption of the French drain, called the Hydroflo, to make sure our customers get the best results.
Interior basement waterproofing. Interior waterproofing is one of the last lines of defense against outside water. We apply a damp-proofing layer to the inside of the walls to protect against seeping moisture and insulate it with another layer to fortify the wall against increased hydrostatic pressure.
Exterior basement waterproofing. Our most extensive waterproofing solution is exterior basement waterproofing, which uses a trench, triple wall drain tile, and a reinforced vapor barrier to waterproof your home from the outside.
Horizontal cracks in your foundation are a sign that external pressure is being put on your basement walls. This can cause the walls to bulge or bow over time and weaken the structural integrity of your home.
If you’re experiencing bowing or bulging walls, contact the experts at StayDry® immediately. Our experienced foundation repair contractors will do a free assessment of your foundation to diagnose the issue and propose the most effective and cost-efficient solution for your home.
Our foundation repair services include:
Wall straightening and fortress stabilization for minor bowing or bulging. Shear reinforcement is a smart and affordable way to return a wall to its original state, but more advanced cases may require additional stabilization with carbon fiber/Kevlar straps.
StayWall steel brace reinforcement. For moderate to severe bowing or bulging, StayDry® has developed the StayWall™ technique. When we see foundations that are in serious trouble, we will attach steel I-beams to the floor joists of the home that are either bolted or set beneath the concrete floor of the foundation.
Complete or partial wall rebuilds. In the most severe cases, individual walls may need to be partially or completely rebuilt to restore the structural integrity of your home.
