Basement Waterproofing in Lynchburg, VA

While homes with basements can be rare throughout Virginia, Lynchburg has a higher percentage of them than most areas of the state. From laundry and storage to extra bedrooms or a fan cave, basements are versatile areas. However, because of the muggy climate, year-round precipitation, and sandy loam and clay soils, these below-ground spaces can fall victim to a variety of issues. Wall cracks and leaks, mold, musty odors, and flooding can put your basement, home, and family in danger.  

It’s important to recognize these issues and contact a trusted basement waterproofing professional like JES Foundation Repair right away. Our team has the tools and training needed to keep your Lynchburg basement free of water and moisture problems for good. Read on to learn more. 

Basement Problem Signs in Lynchburg

While basement damage is common in Lynchburg, you should not have to live with these hazards. It’s important for you to be aware of your basement’s condition and any problem signs that can develop including mold, high humidity, condensation, wet drywall, unpleasant odors, pest infestations, leaks, and flooding. All of these issues are concerning, and they can negatively impact your family’s health and safety and your home’s structural integrity. At the first sign of these and other problems, contact JES as soon as possible to remedy them before serious damage can develop.

Causes of Basement Damage in Lynchburg

The problems mentioned above can be caused by any number of things. The clay bowl effect brought on after the construction of your home can arise when the backfilled soil around your basement walls becomes overly saturated by Lynchburg’s frequent rain. This wet soil expands and creates hydrostatic pressure that pushes up against the basement walls, which can result in basement wall cracks and leaks, and even wall failure and flooding. Plumbing pipes inside your basement also can leak and rupture, and leaking appliances like water heaters and malfunctioning sump pumps also can contribute to water damage. 

Basement Waterproofing Solutions in Lynchburg

Your Lynchburg home may need certain products customized to meet its unique repair needs. No matter what your basement issue is, JES has the best solutions available to solve it. Your inspector might recommend installing an interior drainage system, a sump pump, a dehumidifier, a wall vapor barrier, or any combination or all of these products. They are designed to fit together to catch leaking water, remove it, and control moisture in your basement so it will stay healthy and dry for many years to come.

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.

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!

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!!!

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.

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!
