Basement Waterproofing in Virginia Beach, VA

While basements are less common in many parts of Virginia Beach, a significant number of homes in the city do have one.

Basements in our coastal city are used for a range of purposes, from additional living areas and bedrooms to home offices and recreational spaces. However, the local climate, which includes high humidity levels, frequent rain, and the presence of sandy soils, can lead to numerous basement problems. Issues such as wall cracks, leaks, mold growth, musty smells, and flooding can pose risks to your basement, property, and family’s well-being.

It is essential to be vigilant about these problems and engage a reputable basement waterproofing expert like JES Foundation Repair immediately. Our experienced team possesses the necessary tools and expertise to resolve your Virginia Beach basement’s water and moisture challenges effectively.

Basement Problem Signs in Virginia Beach

In Virginia Beach, basement issues should not be ignored. You must monitor the condition of your basement and be alert for signs of trouble such as mold, excessive humidity, condensation, damp drywall, foul odors, pest invasions, leaks, and water accumulation. These conditions are not only harmful but can also affect your family’s health and safety and compromise your home’s structural stability. At the first indication of these or other problems, reach out to JES promptly to address them before they escalate.

Causes of Basement Damage in Virginia Beach

Several factors can lead to the issues previously discussed. The “clay bowl effect,” which occurs when soil surrounding your basement walls gets overly saturated, particularly after heavy Virginia Beach rain, can lead to soil expansion and increased hydrostatic pressure against the basement walls. This scenario may cause cracks, leaks, and even structural failure. Additionally, internal factors like leaking plumbing, faulty water heaters, and ineffective sump pumps can also result in significant water damage.

Basement Waterproofing Solutions in Virginia Beach

Your home in Virginia Beach may require tailored products to address its specific repair needs. JES offers a variety of top-notch solutions to tackle any basement problem you might have. Your inspector may suggest the installation of an interior drainage system, a sump pump, a dehumidifier, a wall vapor barrier, or a combination of these systems. These products are engineered to work together to capture any water entry, eliminate it, and manage moisture levels in your basement, ensuring a dry and healthy environment for years to come.

Bradley was on time and very friendly. Even after we determined that the service I was looking for isn’t a service JES provides and I felt like I had wasted his time he remained professional and pleasant and assured me it was no trouble and he was happy to take a look around while he was here to see if there were any concerns that he could inform me about.Although I won’t be using this company for this project, I am pleased with experience and will definitely consider JES for future needs if they arise.(the service I was wanting: to have an egress window cut into the basement foundation)Update 12/7/22 – Bradley just called me and informed me that he found someone who may be able to help with the egress window. He definitely went above and beyond!

We had a lot of hills we had to climb and plans to change but the JES team did it. They started the project, ran into some issues, and had to rewrite the plans. I made a few calls and management came out and the project was back on. Joseph “Joe” Palotas, Certified Field Inspector, and Nick Feaster, Sales Manager, did an amazing job of making sure we could continue the repairs when we hit a wall. Neither Joe nor Nick are scared to get their hands dirty. Nick even came out and explained in detail what needed to be done and put on his boot and went to work helping. The crew, Michael Burrell, Steve Marshall, and Nick Feaster are very nice, polite young men. They did an excellent job getting everything done in an acceptable time manner. When the project was complete they took the time to explain everything to me in great detail. Very happy with the service JES provided.

I had forman Charles and installers Hunter, Ricco, and Rock come out and encapsulate my crawl space today. The guys were prompt, professional, and very polite! I highly recommend their work (they need a drone to help with photos in tight crawlspaces like mine lol). This is a huge expensive project, but a heck of an investment. Dont hire your cousin to do this job (the previous owner of my house did this, my floors sag and i had mold on my joists), hire professionals, I highly recommend the JES crew. I will tell all my friends to go with JES if they have foundation issues. 10 out of 10! Thanks again guys!!!

They did an excellent job! Jake H and Dontay W were very professional and gave daily updates on the progress. When they left, we couldn't even tell they had been here they cleaned up so well. Definitely happy with their work and would recommend to anyone.

The crew foreman, Rod, kept me informed of their arrival time. Upon arrival we covered the installation details and everything was laid out as planned. He and his crew (Keenan and Shaq) were very courteous. The work was executed very timely and the workmanship exceeded my expectations! Would certainly recommend this hard working crew!

We had a drain system installed by JES last week. The installation went well. Our foreman and crew were great and if they ran into any issues they let us know and gave us a solution. We haven't had a chance to test the system yet, but I will update once we have. Our sales person (Joe Palotas) went above and beyond! He walked us through everything on our initial meeting and made us feel comfortable with the direction we went. I would highly recommend requesting him.
