Foundation Waterproofing Services

As a homeowner in Metro Detroit, you know the importance of ensuring your basement remains dry from Michigan’s unpredictable rainfalls. Not only can water in your basement cause health issues for your family by promoting mold growth, but it can also ruin possessions and cause severe damage to the structure of your home.

To avoid significant damage to your home’s foundation and the basement it may be necessary to use exterior foundation waterproofing as well as basement waterproofing. At Brickworks we provide both methods to prevent water from seeping through your foundation and into your basement.

With over 15 years of experience in foundation waterproofing, we offer exterior waterproofing services to include applying waterproofing sealants to your foundation, downspout extensions and installing French drain systems to keep water from entering your basement.

Foundation Waterproofing 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 regard to foundation waterproofing:

  • Cracks in the walls or floors (typically in the basement)
  • Doors and windows sticking or not opening
  • Door frame/window frame pulling separation from the brick
  • Water in basement or crawl space
  • Bowing floors
  • Bowing Walls
  • Sloping walls or floors
  • Drywall cracking
  • Nails pop out of the drywall
  • Expansion joint separation
  • Walls pulling away from the house
  • Exterior Cracks
  • Interior sheetrock cracks
