Basement Problem Signs in Lafayette

Identifying basement problem signs is simple. If you suspect basement issues, just walk into your basement, and you’ll be able to see damage affecting walls, carpet, and more. Keep an eye out for flooded stairs, floor cracks, leaky windows, water seeping from walls, wall cracks, or ochre stains on stone walls. All of these indicate that moisture is getting into your basement, and if left unchecked, could cause considerable damage to your possessions.

What are the Causes of Basement Damage in Lafayette?

Basement damage comes from a few different causes, all of them having to do with water. Often, internal leaks cause massive amounts of water to build up in your basement. For instance, a leaking water heater will expel a lot of water in a short amount of time. Water can also leak in from outside after heavy storms. Lafayette receives about 38 inches of rain and 19 inches of snow every year. When water drains into the soil surrounding your basement, pressure builds up and pushes against your basement’s walls due to a force known as hydrostatic pressure. No matter how water gets into your basement, it causes humidity to rise and leads to the stack effect – a process in which warm humid air travels up into your house.  

Basement Waterproofing Solutions in Lafayette

Basement waterproofing involves different solutions that work together to keep your basement 100 percent dry. Using a vapor barrier, sump pump with backup battery, below floor French drain, and a  dehumidifier altogether provides your basement with maximum moisture protection. Water in any form, gaseous or liquid, will never again build up in your basement once these solutions are installed. Our solutions are manufactured in the USA and come with long-term warranties to ensure your investment is protected.
