Foundation Damage Problem Signs You Need to Watch Out For

Every New Jersey home we work on is unique and faces a unique set of basement water challenges, which means that Blue Umbrella creates customized basement waterproofing solutions. We may use the different basement waterproofing solutions discussed below to fix your basement water problems.

Water in the Basement

Interior basement waterproofing captures any entering basement water in a French drain and channels the water to a sump pump, which pumps the water up and safely away from your home, keeping your basement dry.

Part of interior basement waterproofing is installing a French drain along the interior perimeter of your basement wall. Hidden below the floor, the French drain captures any basement water and transports it to a sump pump.

Basement sump pumps are a vital part of basement waterproofing in your New Jersey home. We use premium Blue Angel by Wayne sump pumps to guarantee reliable performance, pumping any water out of your basement.

During power outages, your default sump pump won't have the electricity to function. But your battery-backup sump pump will still be fully functional, keeping your basement protected until the power comes back.

A specialized dehumidifier in your New Jersey home's basement keeps the humidity low enough to prevent condensation and moisture buildup. It helps keep your basement free of mold, rot, and foundation damage.

Mold & Mildew

The basement vapor barrier on your basement walls contains any moisture that seeps through them, directing it down to the french drain of your New Jersey basement waterproofing system, where it can be dealt with.

When you remove water from your basement, you need somewhere to put it. An exterior drainage system transports any removed water safely down to the street or at least 15 feet away from your foundation out a bubbler pot.

Any water pumped out by your sump pump travels through a discharge line, but this discharge line can freeze in winter. Discharge line protection allows any basement water to be expelled safely, even during freezing temperatures.
