100+ Years of Basement Waterproofing and Crawl Space Experience
Birmingham, Michigan’s proximity to the Great Lakes causes the city to receive an abundance of precipitation year-round. Summers are often hot and humid, while winters are snow packed. Because of this, basement waterproofing is essential in Birmingham, Michigan. One of the most common causes of basement flooding in the region is from damaged tie rod holes.
Luckily, StayDry® Waterproofing can help protect your Birmingham home from basement flooding and we can even repair damaged tie rod holes. Before you contact us for a free estimate, let us fill you in on the dangers of basement flooding and how we can help repair tie rod holes and prevent basement flooding.
Hazards of Basement Flooding
Basement flooding can present a variety of dangers to both your home and those living inside it. For example, water can weaken the cement foundation of your Birmingham home, causing the walls to crack, flake, or even bow inward. This can cause the structural integrity of your home to weaken and, in some extreme cases, lead to collapse.
Additionally, basement flooding can create the perfect environment for mold growth. Not only is mold difficult to get rid of, but the spores can travel through your home’s ventilation system. This can lead to a host of respiratory illnesses, including asthma. Pests, like termites, can also begin to eat away at wooden supports that have become waterlogged, further weakening your home’s structure.
The best way to prevent basement flooding is waterproofing your home before issues like these arise and, at StayDry®, we offer a wide range of quality waterproofing services for Birmingham homeowners.
StayDry® Tie Rod Hole Repair
When foundations are first laid, steel rods are placed inside to help keep it sturdy. Once the cement is dry, these rods are removed leaving what is known as tie rod holes. As you can imagine, these holes can make it easy for water to seep into your basement, causing the issues laid out above.
Luckily, here at StayDry®, we can repair damaged tie rod holes to ensure your basement is safe. Additionally, we offer a wide variety of high-quality waterproofing services to ensure your home is safe from basement flooding. From French drain installation to exterior basement waterproofing, we have a service that is right for everyone.
