Basement Waterproofing in Richmond, VA
Only a small percentage of homes in Richmond have basements. This is a common trend throughout eastern Virginia, mainly due to frequent flooding, a high water table, and the difficulty of constructing below-grade structures in the area’s soil that has sandy properties. Some homes, however, may have a basement, and if yours is one of them, it is crucial to keep its health and safety in mind. Basements are situated mainly below-grade and are more prone to damage such as leaks, mold, high humidity, flooding, and other issues.
Don’t let your basement succumb to problems that could put your family and home at risk. Trust in our professionals at JES Foundation Repair to thoroughly inspect and permanently repair your basement. Read on to learn more about how we can help.
THE JES PROCESS
Basement Problem Signs in Richmond
Spaces like basements that sit below ground level are naturally cooler and damp, but they can experience other issues too. Some of the typical problems you’ll notice with your Richmond basement include musty odors in your basement and home, efflorescence on the walls or floor, increased humidity, condensation, basement mold that spreads elsewhere in your home, wet drywall, and, most obviously, flooding. Addressing these problems as soon as you notice them is important, so don’t hesitate to reach out to JES for help as soon as possible.

Causes of Basement Damage in Richmond, VA
Many different factors can be at play when it comes to the reasons behind water intrusion and other damage in your Richmond home’s basement. However, most of these causes are rooted in the area’s soil. While soil with elements of sand tends to be well-drained, it could become a source of problems in the event of flooding from year-round rain. The soil and heavy precipitation also could combine to form an artificial water table around your home and lead to the clay bowl effect and hydrostatic pressure. These phenomena can threaten your home with cracking and bowing walls that can leak, flood, or even collapse.
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.
Basement Sump Pump Issues
Basement sump pump issues can lead to water problems which are a mess to clean up and can damage your home.
Basement Leaking Window Well
A leaking window well can make a giant mess in your basement which can make it much less comfortable.
