A wet basement is more than just an inconvenience. If not corrected, the problems in a wet basement will worsen over time, causing potential problems with mold, mildew and your home’s foundation. The way to avoid these problems is to waterproof your basement.

DETERIORATION OF PROPERTY VALUE
A wet basement decreases your home’s value by 10-15%. If you waterproof your basement with a French drain system, you can gain that value back and get a dry basement.
UNHEALTHY LIVING CONDITIONS
Mold and mildew associated with damp and wet basements can greatly contribute to respiratory and other health conditions.
STRUCTURAL FOUNDATION DAMAGE
Hydrostatic pressure and water trapped in block walls can deteriorate and buckle a foundation wall.
LOSS OF VALUABLE, USABLE SPACE
A damp basement means the loss of extra living space, a place for work, play, hobbies or even storage. Consequently, the loss of value to your home.
ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD
Excessive water in a basement is dangerous when electrical outlets, appliances etc. are present.
DAMAGE TO BELONGINGS
Carpet, padding, drywall, framing, insulation, furniture, appliances, furnaces, water heaters and stored belongings can all be damaged by flooded basements.
