Basement Waterproofing in Roanoke, VA

Unlike many areas throughout Virginia, Roanoke – located in southwest Virginia along the Blue Ridge Mountains – has a fair percentage of homes with basements. Basements are typically built well below ground level and are versatile areas that can be used for everything from extra storage to entertainment and living space. But they are subject to damage including moisture, leaking water, mold growth, and other problems.  

All is not lost, however. To keep your Roanoke basement in top shape, the key is to have it professionally inspected and repaired. That’s where our experienced team at JES Foundation Repair comes in. We’ll evaluate your home and suggest the best solutions to keep it free of water problems. Keep reading to learn more. 

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.

I had forman Charles and installers Hunter, Ricco, and Rock come out and encapsulate my crawl space today. The guys were prompt, professional, and very polite! I highly recommend their work (they need a drone to help with photos in tight crawlspaces like mine lol). This is a huge expensive project, but a heck of an investment. Dont hire your cousin to do this job (the previous owner of my house did this, my floors sag and i had mold on my joists), hire professionals, I highly recommend the JES crew. I will tell all my friends to go with JES if they have foundation issues. 10 out of 10! Thanks again guys!!!

I moved into my home just over a year ago and have had three basement floodings. After trying to figure out the solution on my own, I gave JES a call. Best decision I ever made. The three young men who performed the basement waterproofing did an standing job for me. They were professional and courteous.

We had a lot of hills we had to climb and plans to change but the JES team did it. They started the project, ran into some issues, and had to rewrite the plans. I made a few calls and management came out and the project was back on. Joseph “Joe” Palotas, Certified Field Inspector, and Nick Feaster, Sales Manager, did an amazing job of making sure we could continue the repairs when we hit a wall. Neither Joe nor Nick are scared to get their hands dirty. Nick even came out and explained in detail what needed to be done and put on his boot and went to work helping. The crew, Michael Burrell, Steve Marshall, and Nick Feaster are very nice, polite young men. They did an excellent job getting everything done in an acceptable time manner. When the project was complete they took the time to explain everything to me in great detail. Very happy with the service JES provided.

The crew foreman, Rod, kept me informed of their arrival time. Upon arrival we covered the installation details and everything was laid out as planned. He and his crew (Keenan and Shaq) were very courteous. The work was executed very timely and the workmanship exceeded my expectations! Would certainly recommend this hard working crew!

Bradley was on time and very friendly. Even after we determined that the service I was looking for isn’t a service JES provides and I felt like I had wasted his time he remained professional and pleasant and assured me it was no trouble and he was happy to take a look around while he was here to see if there were any concerns that he could inform me about.Although I won’t be using this company for this project, I am pleased with experience and will definitely consider JES for future needs if they arise.(the service I was wanting: to have an egress window cut into the basement foundation)Update 12/7/22 – Bradley just called me and informed me that he found someone who may be able to help with the egress window. He definitely went above and beyond!

We had a drain system installed by JES last week. The installation went well. Our foreman and crew were great and if they ran into any issues they let us know and gave us a solution. We haven't had a chance to test the system yet, but I will update once we have. Our sales person (Joe Palotas) went above and beyond! He walked us through everything on our initial meeting and made us feel comfortable with the direction we went. I would highly recommend requesting him.
