Basement Waterproofing in Roanoke, VA

Basement Problem Signs in Roanoke

When there is a problem in your basement, you’ll know it in a variety of ways. Some may not be as noticeable, but others are quite obvious. Some of the most common basement problems homes in Roanoke experience include musty and unpleasant odors, increased pest activity, mold growth, condensation, elevated humidity, wet drywall, and wet floors and carpets. Water on the walls and floor, as well as flooding are other highly visible indicators. Don’t let a trickle of water or cluster of mold turn into a widespread hazard. Reach out to local professionals as soon as possible for a permanent fix.

Causes of Basement Damage in Roanoke

Your wet basement problems could arise from any number of causes. Interior sources that could be to blame include leaking pipes or appliance failure like a malfunctioning sump pump or leaky water heater. External forces like the weather and soil, however, are typically what is behind your basement troubles. Roanoke has an interesting variety of soil types that range from sandy to silty loam that can be gravelly and have some clay content. However, if any of these soils become overly saturated, which is common because of the area’s constant rain, they can lead to excessive hydrostatic pressure as well as basement cracks and leaks.

Basement Waterproofing Solutions in Roanoke

If your Roanoke home has a wet basement, it can greatly benefit from various repairs. DIY fixes are temporary at best and not recommended for the longevity of your basement. It’s important to have customized solutions to fit exactly what your basement needs. Some of the solutions your JES inspector might recommend for your basement include an interior drain, sump pump, dehumidifier, wall vapor barrier, and more. Each of these important pieces of the puzzle make up a complete basement waterproofing system that will keep water and other damage from getting the best of your home.
