Water proofing a basement is a very important part of protecting your home and business. The last thing a homeowner wants is the value of their property to decrease because of water damage and constant basement flooding. We build foundations and waterproof them to ensure your foundation is done as well as protecting it against future water intrusion. Once water enters a building it leaves a path of destruction and if not cleaned in a timely manner, could ultimately lead to hazardous mold build up. Mold deteriorates the infrastructure and water has potential to hollow out the cement floor if it gets under the foundation. New buildings naturally settle, often causing small cracks to develop . Other causes for flooding can be attributable to foundation cracks, downspout runoff, window leaks and poor grading in the surrounding terrain. Let Scaldino Brothers do a complete inspection of your basement so that you don't have to go through any unwanted mold build up or flooding. One of the most effective methods of basement waterproofing would be to install an interior drainage system along the perimeter of your basement beneath the sub-floor, running beside the foundation footings,also known as French Drains. French Drains completely prevent any seepage that may come up through the floor, and block water that may penetrate the foundation. Water captured and diverted in this way is then removed from a basement using a Sump Pump. To find out the best solution for your foundation, CONTACT US with your inquiries.
