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.

This includes keeping an eye out for leaking water, mold, flooding, and more.

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. 


Basement condensation can be a huge problem in many basements. In fact, even if you think you don’t have problems with basement condensation, you may actually have a slightly elevated level of humidity in your basement that’s high enough to cause serious concerns like mold and mildew.

This basement's efflorescence and leak stains is due to a basement moisture problem.


If you’ve ever seen a chalky, white powder on your basement walls, you may not have known what you were looking at. Professionals refer to this residue as “efflorescence,” and it’s more of a warning sign than you might have thought.

Wet Drywall

Wet drywall can be a problem that’s difficult to find and even more difficult to fix. The solution of ripping out the drywall and replacing it doesn’t typically work because your new drywall will probably become wet quickly too.

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. 

flooding from rain

Poor Foundation Drainage

Overflowing gutters, clogged gutters, poor drainage grading and ineffective yard grading contribute to a wet basement. Then the water will drain next to your basement foundation, instead of away from it – then basement leaking begins.
