100+ Years of Basement Waterproofing and Crawl Space Experience
Even Michigan’s state capital is prone to large amounts of precipitation every year. This hefty amount of moisture puts many homes in the Lansing area at risk for flooding, especially during extremely wet years.
Of course, when there is water damage there is also a host of environmental and structural hazards to be found. Preventing water damage and basement floods with basement waterproofing methods can end up being one of the best investments you make for your Lansing home.
Much like the rest of the state, Lansing, Michigan suffers from the lake effect brought on by the Great Lakes. This makes summers hot, humid, and, at times, rainy. Winters, on the other hand, are usually cold with a heavy amount of snowfall.
This sizeable amount of precipitation puts homes in Lansing at risk for flooding. Basements, when flooded, can cause structural damage and become a prime breeding ground for mold and mildew. To avoid these adverse conditions and the hazards that accompany them, consider waterproofing your basement.

Top Foundation Waterproofing Problems
Lansing locals understand how harsh Michigan weather can be. Whether it’s rainstorms in the summer, or snow in the winter, the ground stays wet. This excess in humidity causes the soil around your basement to expand and crack your foundation. Foundation settling is normal. If the cracks are vertical, they are an easy fix. However, horizontal cracks could mean structural instability. Whatever the case, StayDry is here for you. With over 100 years of combined experience, our experts know how to waterproof your home.
At StayDry, we don’t cut corners. If your windows and doors are hard to open, your foundation could be settling and there are likely cracks in your walls. Unlike other basement waterproofers, StayDry uses high-pressure polyurethane injection to seal cracks for a guaranteed lifetime. This prevents the cracks from expanding and letting water through your walls. Call 800-800-7073 for an obligation free consultation today. If you’ve recently moved into a new home and aren’t sure of the structural strength of your foundation, our experts will advise you how to keep your basement water free. We also offer extensive preemptive services such as steel brace reinforcement and exterior waterproofing. Read more to find out about the most common basement waterproofing problems.
Wall and foundation cracks are some of the most common waterproofing problems because they occur when a foundation naturally settles. Sometimes your walls can crack as a result of high humidity or extreme weather. Whatever the case, StayDry will inspect and repair any basement crack. We recommend setting an appointment for an obligation free consultation so that our experts can evaluate if anything needs to be done to keep your basement water free.
Sump Pump Failure
Sump pumps remove water from the basin that collects excess water from around your home. If they fail, your basement could flood. The quality of your sump pump matters, and calling StayDry today will ensure that next time it rains, water doesn’t enter your house. Our PumpSpy sump pump prevents any damage resulting from failed sump pumps. The PumpSpy comes with an extra battery case, a backup pump and extra float sensors. Call today to ensure that water doesn’t enter your basement!
Heavy rain and snow can soften the soil around your home, causing it to expand and shift. Not only can this cause basement cracking, but it can leave excess water around your home. Failure to drain this water can lead to basement flooding. StayDry offers a premium French drain system that collects water in the perimeter around your home and moves it away from your foundation. We install French drains by removing the concrete from the basement floor and digging a large trench. Then, we reinstall the install the drain and put in new concrete. Homeowners can rest assured that water will not collect in their basements. Installing a French drain and sump pump is one of the best ways to waterproof basements. Call today to set up an appointment.

WHAT DO OUR CUSTOMERS SAY?
5 — Ron CarrierStay dry waterproofs basements the right way! I'm happy with their quality of work and custermer service. I'd call them if you want the job done right. Thanks Stay Dry!
5 — Empire Home Builders, LLCWe generally don't write reviews but wanted to give credit where credit is due. Our company recently hired StayDry Basement Waterproofing Inc. to install the Fortress Stabilization System on a foundation wall that had a slight bow and to do a sump pump installation as well. We had several companies give us an estimate and we hired StayDry because they were able to meet our timeline for this project and had the best reviews everywhere we searched online. As far as customer service goes, these guys rank up there with some of the best companies we've ever worked with. A couple of people we want to mention here: Keith Brown (Foundation Specialist) - Keith was extremely knowledgable and really responsive. He came out to give us an estimate even though we weren't available to meet with him. We provided the lockbox combination to access the property and he contacted us to discuss his proposed solution. Marty Herman (Office Manager) - Marty was fantastic. She kept us informed about what was going on and provided all requested documents in a timely manner. Kevin Kesson (Foreman & Crew Leader) - Kevin and his crew was incredible. These guys showed up on time, worked diligently and cleaned up daily. The whole project took 3 days from start to finish and the most impressive part was that they encountered blizzard like conditions on day 2 but they did not let that keep them from doing their job. That alone earned 2 thumbs up from us! Overall, we rated StayDry 5 Stars not because they deserved it but because they earned it! A special note to the owner David Brown...
5 — Denise OskiThe work these men had to do on my basement was extremely strenuous and they did the job with smiles on there faces. Excellent customer service ! I would recomend Travis Oski and his crew to anybody. My basement is dry !!
5 — Ronnie SopkoI distinctly remember the kindness and professionalism of travis oski. He really went the extra distance on my parents rental.
5 — Jennifer DavisI had the waterproofing done on my basement 3 years ago. I had a small issue just recently and when I called in they had someone out to my house the same day to asses the problem and a repair was done in less then a week! I have to say the customer service is great and David Brown went above and beyond to make sure I was a satisfied customer. I would recommend Staydry to anyone that has basement issues!
