Because your basement is underground, moisture is its constant enemy. Without a reliable waterproofing system, your basement is at risk for mold, leaking, wall damage, flooding, and property damage. Carolina Foundation Solutions utilizes basement waterproofing systems to divert incoming water into a drainage system and away from your basement. We offer a line of systems that are designed to meet the specific needs of your basement while fitting within your budget. Our waterproofing systems all consist of the same critical components:
- Moisture barrier: Prevents all moisture from entering the interior of your basement.
- Diverter: Maintains open pathways to direct all water into your drainage system.
- Drainage system: Designed to accommodate a high volume of water, the drainage system is placed under the floor of your basement to collect and discharge all stormwater.
- Sump pump: Pumps the collected water out of your basement and into a storm drain. The sump pump is the heart of any basement waterproofing system.
We also offer an optional (but highly recommended) battery backup system to keep your sump pump running during power outages caused by hurricanes, thunderstorms, snow, and ice.
Water Damage in Basements
Over 60% of homes in the U.S. with basements suffer from problems caused by water and excess moisture. When water is not properly controlled in your basement, you will most likely experience a multitude of issues, some of which might even impact the value of your home. If you notice a white powdery substance on your basement walls, condensation, or leaks around basement windows and other penetrations, there is too much water entering your basement. You might also notice wet walls, drywall, or floors in your basement, all of which indicate a water problem.
If the water damage is extensive, you may see cracked or bowing basement walls. None of these signs of water damage should be ignored; call Carolina Foundation Solutions for immediate basement leak repair. We’ll investigate the problem and develop a solution to keep your basement safe and dry.
Wet Basement Repair FAQs
Wet basements are a very common problem across the Carolinas. At Carolina Foundation Solutions, we have extensive experience providing wet basement repair. Below are the most common questions we hear from our customers about their wet basements:
Wall Damage in NC & SC Basements
If your basement walls are cracked, buckling, leaning, and/or bowing, they are suffering structural issues most likely caused by water in the ground around your house. As water builds up in the soil around your home, it exerts hydrostatic pressure against the walls of your basement. This causes them to bow, crack, and buckle. Basement walls are built to withstand a normal amount of pressure from the surrounding soil, but if yours were poorly constructed, they might not be adequate to resist this pressure.
If you notice damage in your basement walls, call Carolina Foundation Solutions for basement wall repair. Our highly trained technicians will evaluate your walls and identify the root cause of the damage. If poor water drainage is at fault, we will install a waterproofing system to divert water away from your basement, then repair your walls.
There are many factors that can dictate the type of repair needed. These factors include the type of materials used to construct the walls, the height of the walls, the height of the backfilled soils, and the extent of the movement or damages. After a thorough evaluation of the situation, we will most likely use one or more of these common and effective methods of basement wall reinforcement:
- Carbon fiber reinforcement straps: These straps are applied directly to the face of the wall and provide reinforcement and stabilization. This method is quick, cost-effective, and immediately effective.
