100+ Years of Basement Waterproofing and Crawl Space Experience

The proximity of Pontiac to the Great Lakes gives the city an abundant amount of precipitation year-round. Summers in Pontiac are exceptionally humid and are prone to rainy days. Winters, in comparison, are bitterly cold and bring substantial amounts of snow to the city.

This high-level of precipitation can wreak havoc on your Michigan basement. Water damage, as a result of flooding, can have devastating effects on your home. Mold growth and structural issues often arise as a result of basement flooding. To prevent this and reduce your risks for these issues, we recommend having your Pontiac basement waterproofed.

Pontiac’s Year-Round Climate

Much like Detroit and other cities in eastern Michigan, Pontiac is no stranger to heavy precipitation. Summers, as mentioned above, are filled with rainy days. In fact, Michigan is one of the rainiest states in the nation.

Of course, winters aren’t much different. With more than 30 inches of snow on average every year, Pontiac homes seem to always be at risk for basement floods. In turn, basement flooding can lead to extensive water damage which can have dangerous effects on one’s health. Asthma and even lung infections are commonly caused by mold spores in the home.

Pontiac Basement Waterproofing Services

With the adverse effects of water damage, StayDry recommends having your Pontiac basement waterproofed. We operate across the entire state of Michigan and Pontiac is one of our favorite locations. Some of the waterproofing services we offer in Pontiac are:

Additionally, for homes at greater risk of basement flooding we offer our exterior basement waterproofing service. While this is one of our more costly services, it is by far one of the most effective at keeping water outside the home.

Wall Cracks

Foundation settling is normal and common. If your doors or windows are difficult to open, your foundation has likely settled. When this happens, it’s important to check for wall cracks. If the crack is horizontal, you could have a serious structural problem. StayDry will replace the entire walls or, if the damage is slight enough, we will install steel bars or Kevlar straps to keep the wall in place. If the crack is vertical, we will keep water out with our high-pressure polyurethane injection system. At StayDry, we don’t cut corners. Unlike our competitors who do shoddy jobs in hopes to force customers to need future repairs, StayDry injection repair comes with a lifetime guarantee. We will keep water out and prevent cracks from expanding.

Weather

For Pontiac locals, heavy moisture is no foreign concept. Michigan has some of the highest average yearly precipitation. If you live near the Great Lakes, then the water table is high and the soil is wet year round. In order to keep water out of your house and redirect it elsewhere, StayDry will install a sump pump and French drain system. A French drain takes water from the perimeter around your house and funnels it into the sump basin. This basin is then emptied by the sump pump. Those looking for additional protection will love our exclusive PumpSpy. This provides additional assurance that your basement will stay dry when you are asleep or on vacation. This backup pump comes with extra batters and float sensors. If your sump pump fails unexpectedly, the PumpSpy will keep your basement dry.

Poor Construction

If the soil under and around your home wasn’t properly tested, it could lead to permanent foundation problems. Weak soil can lead to sunken or cracked floors. If you notice that your floor is sinking, call StayDry immediately, and a representative will rush over and help prevent additional damage.
