Basement Waterproofing in Northeast North Carolina

Basements are rare along coastal areas like Northeast North Carolina, largely due to the difficulty with building in damp sandy or silty loam soil and the area’s high water table. However, some of these below-ground areas do exist in a handful of homes in the region. If that happens to be the case with your Northeast North Carolina house, it’s important to stay vigilant about your basement’s condition. This includes keeping an eye out for leaking water, mold, flooding, and more. 

Problems in your basement can result in significant health, safety, and structural dangers. But they can be mended and avoided with the help of local basement waterproofing experts from JES Foundation Repair. Keep reading to learn more about your home’s basement, any issues it might be experiencing, and how our experienced team can help you create a safe, dry, and healthy home. 

Basement Problem Signs in Northeast North Carolina

If there are issues with your Northeast North Carolina home’s basement, you’ll know it by spotting a variety of common problem signs. Among them are mold growth in your basement and throughout your home, water leaks, musty odors, more pests than usual, higher than normal humidity, condensation, wet walls or floors, and flooding. When you first notice any of these problems, contact our expert team at JES right away before they are left to worsen and cause even more issues. 

Causes of Basement Damage in Northeast North Carolina

There could be several reasons why your basement is experiencing various forms of damage. Interior sources include a leaking or rusted water heater, malfunctioning sump pump system, or a burst or leaking pipe. However, the most common causes stem from external forces like the weather and the soil your Northeast North Carolina home was built on. The sandy or silty loam soil common in the area may or may not drain water from frequently heavy rains quickly. Along with oversaturation and flooding, the soil can aid in hydrostatic pressure that leads to cracking and leaking basement walls.

Every home in Northeast North Carolina is unique in its own way, and each will require certain repairs. At JES, we are pleased to offer a variety of basement waterproofing solutions that will keep your basement permanently dry. These include an interior drainage system to intercept leaking water, a sump pump to remove the water, and an energy-efficient dehumidifier to control moisture and humidity.

The team did a great job on our crawl space encapsulation. Collin D. was very thorough during the estimate. The crew of Charles Hartz, Matt Remington, Paul Howl & Cameron M. were great. They called ahead of time and notified me when they were leaving. They would also show me what they did each day.

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.
