Hampton Roads Basement Waterproofing

Most homes in Hampton Roads, VA, are not built with basements because of the area’s high water table and loamy soils with sandy and silty properties.

Basement Problem Signs in Hampton Roads

Whether you spend a lot of time in your Hampton Roads basement or rarely ever visit this area of your home, there are a few problems you might discover that point to the need for waterproofing or other repairs. Water leaks, moisture, mold growing in your basement or other parts of your house, efflorescence on concrete basement walls or floors, and musty aromas in the basement or throughout your house are the most typical trouble indications to be aware of. It’s crucial to contact your local basement specialists at JES as soon as you start to notice these and other problems in order to nip them in the bud. 

Causes of Basement Damage in Hampton Roads

There are numerous causes of the aforementioned problem signs. While interior factors like a malfunctioning sump pump, leaky water heater, or ruptured plumbing line may be to blame, the soil under and around your Hampton Roads house is the most common cause of basement issues. After the basement walls are constructed, the soil that was dug up during the construction of your home is replaced. This loose sandy, silty loam soil is easily oversaturated, which can lead to the formation of an artificial water table and the clay bowl effect. Due to the hydrostatic pressure created by the water in the soil, basement walls may crack and leak.

I would like to commend the JES team(s) that repaired my foundation and flooring in Nov/Dec 2022. Conan B., Eric Z., Corey B., Cameron M. and David H. all worked extremely hard to repair my 1958 rancher and I am very pleased with the results.They were all genuinely determined to do their best work and I am completely satisfied with the result. It was great to see the teamwork and the rapport between the crew and the managers.I learned a lot from them about foundation repair and sagging wooden floors so that was a bonus! Thanks guys!Mary B.

I had my slab lifted with push piers then filled with poly and this company came in a tad bit more expensive than some other companies however the quality and warranty made them worth the extra cost, which in my opinion is marginal, and their team was professional and explained everything so I knew what was going on during the process. I definitely recommend JES for your foundation repair needs. Huge thanks to the crew that did the repair for push piers it was Agustin G., Agustin L. and Eduardo L. Poly was Andrew F. and Steven S. Super professional they got in did their work and cleaned up great looks like no one was ever there.
