We don’t like to tell people what to do, but sometimes it has to be said… if you have a wet basement, then you need basement waterproofing! There is really no two ways about it. Wet patches in your basement can be a sign of leaks, while damp patches reveal spots where water has penetrated the walls or floors.
There are many reasons why you might find yourself living with a wet basement. Cracks in your walls and foundations can be the cause of leaks, and hydrostatic pressure from soil and water makes basements and crawl spaces especially vulnerable. They do, after all, lie below the waterline.
If left untreated, damp only tends to get worse, cracks and gaps will remain unfixed, and the structural integrity of your property can even become jeopardized over time in some cases. If damp becomes mold then you have another serious problem on your hands. Mold can be extremely harmful to breathe, and in any case makes a room very unpleasant.
In places where floods are a risk, you may need to consider extra drainage and pumps along with a solid waterproofing solution. You don’t have to live with a waterlogged basement, thanks to the ever-improving sump pump systems available.
Whether you use your basement as a bedroom, for storage, or even just as a crawl space, you should never settle for damp, mold, or leaks. Basement waterproofing can restore your home back to its former state of dryness and comfort.

For example, if you have a leak due to a crack in the wall, then some sealant might be all that is needed. More extreme damage to walls and foundations might require more work. In some cases you may opt for drainage solutions, or for interior waterproofing that protects the inside of your basement.
