When Do I Need to Waterproof My Basement?

Our state experiences a significant amount of snow and rain each year. Add summer humidity and you have the perfect formula for a wet, humid basement or moist crawl space.

With a little help from our industry-leading basement waterproofers, you can take control of the situation and make water damage yesterday's problem.

A flooded basement isn’t the only sign you need waterproofing services. There are several red flags indicating there is a moisture issue in your basement or crawl space, including:

  • Musty odors
  • Cracks in walls or floors
  • Bowed walls
  • Watermarks on the walls
  • Chronic illness or respiratory conditions linked to mold
  • Water pooling outside your home
  • Bug infestations

What’s Involved in Basement Waterproofing?

Since every New Jersey home is different, we never use a one-size-fits-all approach. Depending on our findings, we may recommend one solution or a combination of several, including:

Blue Umbrella specializes in interior and exterior waterproofing solutions. If you can already see visible damage to your home’s foundation, we also specialize in crack repair and basement foundation repair in Union County, NJ and beyond.

Before offering our professional recommendation, we consider every important factor such as your home's age, property grading, foundation depth and more. Rest assured by the time we present your options, we’ve done our homework to ensure our advice is right for you.

What Are the Benefits of Basement Waterproofing?

Waterproofing your New Jersey basement is about more than just staying dry. Benefits include:

  • Improved health and safety. A wet, humid basement creates a perfect environment for mold growth. Waterproofing your basement can help prevent future mold problems and relieve allergy symptoms, upper respiratory infections, and more.
  • Increased home value. Do you plan on ever selling your home? Prospective buyers and realtors will inspect your basement for signs of water damage. If your home's lower level is in bad shape, this will significantly reduce your home’s overall value. Even if there aren’t noticeable signs of water damage, waterproofing is still wise because it gives prospective buyers one less thing to worry about, thus increasing home value.
  • More usable space. You’re already paying for the space in your basement. Why not get the most out of it? Once your basement is waterproofed, you can turn it into a private office, a theater room, a guest living area, or whatever you choose. The possibilities are endless. Keep in mind that if you are planning to finish your basement, you should waterproof it first.
  • Peace of mind. Are you afraid the next spring thaw or heavy rainfall will be the final straw for your wet basement? A proper waterproofing job can finally put your worries to rest. For year-round peace of mind, learn more about our Umbrella Maintenance Plan.

Waterproofing Protects Your Foundation

Water seeping through your basement walls can slowly pull apart the poured concrete, the mortar between stones, or the blocks of the foundation. This can result in serious wall damage, like the photo below.

Over time, water erosion will weaken your foundation, which, if left unchecked, can require foundation repair services or even whole foundation wall replacement.

But you can avoid expensive, and unnecessary foundation repair by getting ahead of the problem with interior basement waterproofing. The weep holes we install along the perimeter of your basement relieve the damaging water pressure, allowing water to be captured in a french drain and safely removed from the basement before it wreaks havoc on your home.
