The midwestern climate invites a lot of moisture in your home due to high amounts of precipitation and humidity. The summer is humid and full of rainstorms while the winter experiences heavy snowfall. Farmington Hills homeowners need to prepare their homes for moisture and address leaks. Tie rod hole leaks are one of the most common culprits for water damage in the home.

We have been providing our clients with waterproofing services for years and have plenty of experience to address tie rod hole leaks. Here is some information on tie rod hole leaks and how our services can fix the problems they cause.
Cement and Tie Rod Holes
A cement basement are prone to water damage because of the way they were built. In the past, cement structures were held together by wood and steel rods as they dried. Once the steel rods were removed, they would leave small holes known as tie rod holes. If you have a cement basement, chances are you have tie rod holes.
These holes can collect water and leak into your basement. They are very easy to recognize because they have a distinct look. The water leaks through the holes leaving a quarter-sized mark on your wall with stains falling to the ground. They tend to have an unsightly and unappealing look. Beyond their aesthetic damage, these leaks can become more troublesome if not addressed.
Damage Caused By Basement Leaks
Tie rod holes tend to damage the items you have stored within your basement. These pesky holes also need to be fixed before you do any basement finishing work. It is important to have a dry basement because any leaks can damage the walls, insulation, and any other work you’ve done to finish your basement.
Outside of this damage, neglected tie rod hole leaks can become much more serious issues for your home. If cracks begin to form around the tie rod holes, the water can quickly make them grow and spread. If they spread enough, they can compromise the structural integrity of your home. It is important to avoid this excessive damage and have tie rod holes repaired.
