Basement Waterproofing

If you’re noticing water in your basement, the first question to answer is how is the water making its way inside? Are your entire home’s gutters, downspouts or other drainage systems working effectively and diverting water away from the home? The prevention of water problems originating from gutters, downspouts or the grading around the foundation can help you avoid spending thousands of dollars on waterproofing your basement.

    Basement Storage

    With proper stabilization using a variety of methods such as steel beams and proper shoring of your home, you can dig the clay soil underneath your home to build a new basement. Soils conditions must be tested first to ensure that the depth allows for digging. If the subsoil consists of bedrock, then it may not be possible to dig deeper under the crawl space.

    Leaky

    Leaking basements occur due to water seeping through the concrete walls, which is a sign that water does not drain properly away from your home or basement. With special drainage products, you can prevent any basement from leaking, effectively and permanently. Before commencing any new basement project, it’s crucial to making sure that your basement is dry first.

    Basement flooding can cause you to lose several thousands of dollars worth in property damage as well as the loss of all the years you’ve spent collecting those stored valuables. A flooded basement can also damage utility equipment and create a dangerous environment. Eventually, an untreated flooded basement can quickly invite swampy insects and mold spores to your home. Flooded basements can occur due to failures in the sump pump system which can cause water to stand and stay.

    Drainage

    When we think of a basement drain system, most of us will think of tiles or footing drains, and especially, traditional PVC piping. French drains installed along the exterior perimeter of the home can drastically change the look of your landscape, which can easily become labor intensive due to excavation and sloping.

    New Basement Construction

    Given the right soil conditions underneath your existing home, you can create or build a new basement addition to add square footage and additional space. Whether you are looking to increase storage space, build a gym, wine cellar, family room, kid’s room, or any other kind of specialized space, a new basement can add more value to your home.

    You can construct a new basement as an addition to your home without altering the condition of your home. If you have adequate yard space, then constructing a basement off to the side of the home will add space and value to your property.

    Is Basement Repair Expensive?

    How do I know if I need basement repair?
    Most people in Southern California do not use their basement on a daily basis.  This fact can make it difficult for a home owner to tell if a basement needs repair (unless of course there are obvious problems!).  The difficulty is that by the time a home owner spots a basement problem, it may be too late for a quick, inexpensive fix. The right thing to do is to prevent basement issues from happening in the first place! Please be proactive and go down to your basement today and have a look around to see if you can spot any issues.  For example, can you see any water or dampness where it should not be? Can you spot any leaky pipes, water seeping in from the walls or ceilings, a bad or musty smell?  If you do, you must fix these issues immediately.   If you do not notice any of these problems, this does not mean that there are no problems in your basement.  Many problems, especially when they first appear, are not always observable to home owners. However, Weinstein Construction professionals are very experienced in spotting issues and will be happy to come to your home for a free, no-obligation inspection of your basement.  If you have a problem basement, we will be able to find the issues and offer you the right mitigation strategies that can not only fix the problem today, but help ensure you don’t have costly repairs in the future.
