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.
