Basement Repair Methods
There are many solutions to basement problems and each basement repair method is unique to your basement’s needs.
Tackling Humidity and Condensation Problems
JES Dehumidifier Basement Dehumidifier
A basement dehumidifier, such as a JES Dehumidifier, is great to prevent humidity and condensation problems. Controlling basement humidity is important in terms of basement repair. Unchecked dampness can lead to mold growth, wood rotting fungus, and dust mites. Mold can damage and destroy materials and items in your basement and cause serious health problems. A JES Dehumidifier is extremely powerful and is specifically designed to dry your entire basement.
Water Drainage Systems
A BasementGutter drainage system is designed to permanently solve your basement water problems. BasementGutter is a patented interior basement waterproofing solution that revolutionized previous basement repair solutions. Unlike traditional French drains, BasementGutter has a design that separates the system from the soil under your basement floor, so it won’t clog. It also has a special wall flange that prevents floor dirt and debris from entering. A BasementGutter system is applicable to all foundation types including block, poured concrete and stone.
Installing a basement sump pump system is another drainage method that will prevent water intrusion. There are several sump pump versions available to choose from. These versions include a TripleSafe Sump Pump System, a SuperSump Sump Pump, and the SmartSump Sump Pump System. Each basement sump pump is designed to keep your basement dry and comes with WaterWatch to alert you of any flooding. This system also includes an airtight floor drain that lets water in but not out.
Basement Wall Bowing
Foundation Wall Anchors
If your basement walls are bowing, then foundation wall anchors are a solution to strengthen and repair them. Foundation wall anchors are designed with three main parts: an exterior earth anchor, an interior wall plate, and a connecting steel rod. Together, they all work to counteract the pressure being exerted against your bowing basement wall.
