100+ Years of Basement Waterproofing and Crawl Space Experience

It’s no question that the Michigan climate is home to some of the most moisture in the country. With humidity and rain storms in the summer and heavy snowfall throughout the winter, homes are constantly at risk of leaks and water damage. Tie rod hole leaks are incredibly common and Detroit homeowners are no strangers to the risks.

Luckily, StayDry® Waterproofing offers a wide array of waterproofing services to protect your home from the inclimate weather. We understand the importance of proper waterproofing and maintaining a safe and dry basement. With that said, tie rod holes are common causes of leaks, here is some information about tie rod holes and how our services help.

Why Tie Rod Holes Are Common

If your Detroit home’s basement is made out of cement, chances are you’ve noticed some unsightly leaks. Tie rod holes are a common feature of cement structures because of how cement was constructed in the past. Cement was initially held together by wood and steel rods while it dried. After it dried, the steel rods were removed and left tiny holes known as tie rod holes.

Many Detroit basements were built using this method so they have issues with leaky basements because of them. These leaks are incredibly unsightly, yet, very recognizable. These leaks emerge from a quarter sized hole and leave stains along your wall as the water drips to the floor. While they may be aesthetically unpleasing, they also can cause serious issues with your home.

The Dangers of Leaky Basements

Unfortunately, tie rod holes can cause troublesome issues for your home. These leaks can cause water damage to the things you have stored on your basement. While this can be an annoyance, tie rod holes can crack and cause your walls to crumble. The excess water can help with the process of breaking down your walls.

If your walls begin to crack, the damage can worsen and eventually compromise your structural integrity. It is important to find the right methods to sealing the tie rod holes and repairing the cracks around the area. This will make sure that your home is safe from extensive damage and your basement remains dry.
