It's no secret that having a waterproofing system in place is going to be what's needed to stop this water from getting inside and causing damage. Seal-Tite has a team of professionals who have seen it all when it comes to leaky basements, and they are ready to help you take care of whatever the situation may be that's going on underneath your home.
First, you need to understand how water can get into your basement to begin with. Moisture is always going to find the path of least resistance, so if you have floor or wall cracks in your basement, seepage is easily able to get into your home. Also, water can get in through leaking window wells. If you have basement windows that aren't sealed properly, then you're going to have problems with moisture. Water can also get into your home by going over the top of the foundation and leaking down your basement walls. These are just a handful of ways in which water can get inside, but regardless of how it's getting in, you need to put a stop to it before the damage gets way out of hand and ends up costing you thousands to take care of!
So, how can Seal-Tite waterproof your basement? We can install sump pumps, basement drains, and seal leaking windows.
Sump pumps are designed to accumulate water in a sump basin. Once water reaches a certain level in the pit, it will be sent out far away from the home so that it can't seep into the soil and back in through your foundation again. We can also provide you with battery backup sump pumps which will be activated in case the primary pump fails. This means you'll have the protection you need even if the power goes out during a heavy rain storm.
Our basement drains will help to collect water which may try to get in through the basement cove. These drain systems can be installed quickly, and for an affordable price. What's more is that we will be sure to clean up the work area when we are finished so that you won't have a mess to deal with on your own! Typically, these basement drains will be attached to a sump pump.
We can also seal your leaking basement windows. You would be amazed by how much water can get in through here! Once it gets inside, it runs down the wall and causes severe water damage to your basement walls, flooring, and anything you have stored here.
Don't put it off any longer, get your wet basement fixed ASAP by Seal-Tite!
