Questions & Answers
Frequently Asked Questions

What are the common signs of foundation problems and the need for basement waterproofing?
Common signs of foundation problems include cracked walls, uneven floors, doors and windows that stick or don't close properly, and gaps between the foundation and the walls. Basement waterproofing issues often manifest as water seepage, mold and mildew, musty odors, peeling paint or efflorescence on walls, and standing water in the basement.

How much does foundation repair and basement waterproofing cost?
The cost of foundation repair and basement waterproofing can vary greatly depending on the extent of the damage and the methods used. Foundation repair can range from a few hundred dollars for minor crack repairs to tens of thousands for major structural issues. Basement waterproofing can cost between $500 for minor fixes to over $10,000 for a full interior and exterior waterproofing system. It is essential to get an accurate estimate from a professional to understand the costs involved.

How long does it take to repair a foundation and waterproof a basement?
The time required for foundation repair and basement waterproofing can vary based on the severity of the problem, the chosen repair methods, and the size of the property. Minor repairs may take only a few days, while more complex projects can take weeks or even months. Weather conditions can also impact the timeline of the project.

What are the different methods used for foundation repair and basement waterproofing?
There are several methods for foundation repair, including:

a) Concrete underpinning – strengthening the existing foundation by adding more concrete.
b) Steel piers – using steel piers to stabilize the foundation.
c) Helical piers – screw-like piers installed to lift and stabilize the foundation.
d) Slabjacking – pumping a cementitious mixture beneath the slab to lift and level it.

Basement waterproofing methods include:

a) Interior waterproofing – applying waterproof coatings or installing an interior drainage system.
b) Exterior waterproofing – applying a waterproof membrane on the exterior walls and installing a drainage system.
c) Sump pumps – installing a sump pump to collect and expel water from the basement.

How can I prevent future foundation problems and basement water issues?
Preventative measures for foundation problems include maintaining proper grading around the property, ensuring downspouts direct water away from the foundation, and addressing any plumbing leaks. For basement waterproofing, regular inspections and maintenance of the waterproofing system, gutters, and downspouts, along with sealing cracks and installing a dehumidifier can help keep your basement dry.
