Why fix Basement Waterproofing Issues in Southeast Michigan?

There are many factors that play a role in the lifespan of your Southeast Michigan home’s basement waterproofing system; soil conditions, climate, landscaping, and grading are just few. In Southeast Michigan, the life expectancy of the original basement waterproofing system tends to last between 25-50 years in most cases.

The soil closest to the home was dugout to construct the basement or crawlspace. This area is called the backfill zone. The backfill accepts water much quicker than the virgin soil away from the house. This creates what experts call the clay bowl effect. As water soaks through the backfill, the water will seep through the soil and over time drag sediment down into the drain tile eventually clogging and making the drainage inoperable.

Your foundation is the base of your home and the most important part of its construction. The word FOUNDATION says it all! Protecting your foundation from water damage and hydrostatic pressure should be a priority. A wet basement affects your health, resale value, usable space, and can ultimately affect the structural integrity of your home. Foundation Restoration offers four different drainage solutions depending on your home’s foundation. Many of our basement waterproofing solutions come with a transferable lifetime warranty.

Bubbling Paint & Efflorescence

When moisture seeps through the blocks or concrete walls of your foundation, it can cause the paint to bubble and a phenomenon called "efflorescence". This is a sure sign that your waterproofing has failed and you need expert assistance immediately.
