Between the humid summers and cold winters, Kalamazoo receives a great deal of moisture. As a homeowner in Kalamazoo, you must worry about groundwater seepage from snow runoff wreaking havoc on your basement.
This can be especially frustrating if you just spent a lot of money on finishing your basement. Fortunately, not all hope is lost. Proactive owners invest in waterproofing their basements to protect the structure from groundwater seepage, which often arises when the weather sours.
If your basement has already started to leak, it can be tempting to try and ignore the problem. Praying the issue will go away can add up to far more damage. This leads to the growth of harmful mold and the destruction of your structure.
Don’t worry! We’ve got you covered with remediation solutions in addition to waterproofing.
What Does Basement Waterproofing Entail?
When our Bluebird waterproofing experts do basement waterproofing, we will dig out a foot-wide ditch along the wall or section where the leak is. We will also add stone, then a filter fabric weed barrier, and finally place a system that’s been specifically engineered for basement waterproofing.
More stones will be added, along with a sump pump. The Bluebird crew then cements over all of that to give you a level surface in your basement.
By then, your basement will be completely waterproofed. The phalanges along the wall from the waterproofing system will still be visible after the team has completed the waterproofing process. If you’d like, you can then purchase a dehumidifier and place it in your basement to have even more peace of mind that your basement will remain dry for years to come.
What Else Can I Expect?
Waterproofing your basement protects it from more expensive trouble in the future, including:
- Damaged Carpet and Drywall
- Waterlogged Furniture
- Water-warped Ceilings and Tile Floors
- Foundation Damage
