Water in Your Basement Warning Signs

At Brickworks we recommend that all new homeowners should waterproof their basement.
Water damage is extremely common and, if left unchecked, can cause major problems for
you and your household. Unsurprisingly, an insufficient drainage system is often to blame
for substantial foundation repairs. In addition, the soil underneath your home or an
improperly laid foundation on a slope may also be to blame. With that in mind, here are a
few things to watch out for in regards to preventing water from seeping into your basement or crawl space.

  • Cracked or Crumbling Foundation
  • Dry Rot
  • Mold and/or Mildew Build-up
  • Water Seepage
  • Rust
  • Honeybombed Concrete
  • Efflorescense
  • Musty Basement Smell

How to Prevent Water in Your Basement

A wet basement can smell and feel offensive and more importantly, pose a risk to the value of your home.  If ignored, water in your basement will ruin your basement walls and floor.  It can also promote the growth of harmful mold.  Often, water in your basement can be stopped by taking simple actions such as diverting downspouts away from the foundation of your home.  But if the water is coming in from other sources it may require a more aggressive approach.  Here are a few tips to prevent water in your basement:

  • Monitor your drainage system
  • Repair Footing Drains
  • Install a Curtain Drain
  • Install Interior Drainage System and Pump the Water Out
  • Waterproof the Walls
  • Monitor your drainage system
  • Update/upgrade your gutters
  • Inspect your foundation regularly
  • Schedule plumbing inspections
  • Plant large trees away from your home
  • Keep moisture levels consistent around the foundation
  • Foundation Grading
  • Proper positioning of lawn sprinklers
  • Proper planning of concrete features
