New Jersey Basement Waterproofing Company

The Real Basement Waterproofing Experts in Bergenfield, NJ

Did you know Bergenfield gets as much as 47 inches of rain annually? That's far above the national average of 38 inches! With so much water, the last thing you want is for it to make its way through a crack and into your basement. You need basement waterproofing. 

But, every Bergenfield home is unique, facing its own set of basement water issues and causes. You need a waterproofing contractor that knows how to adapt their solutions to every problem. That's where Blue Umbrella Waterproofing comes in! We customize basement waterproofing solutions to the exact needs of your home.

The process begins with scheduling a free inspection. Next, our waterproofing experts search for any problem signs and problem sources. Once they've determined that they've found all the issues, they provide you with a detailed estimate and explain what's happening to your Bergenfield home and the right solution.

Whether the solution is exterior waterproofing, interior waterproofing, or some combination of both, we'll ensure the rainy days stay where they belong: outside your home!

A Look Into Interior Basement Waterproofing

Interior basement waterproofing gives your Bergenfield home a highly effective defense against basement water. What's more, interior basement waterproofing doesn't require the same extensive foundation excavation involved in exterior waterproofing.

Here's a look into the interior basement waterproofing process!

  • Our waterproofing specialists drill weep holes along the perimeter of your basement at the bottom of the walls. Any water in the soil that reaches your foundation flows through these holes and enters the drainage channels.
  • We install drainage channels (french drains or drain tile) along the basement perimeter, beneath the floor. We pitch the drainage channel downward, encouraging the water to flow directly to the newly-installed sump pump.
  • To evacuate the water that collects in the sump pit, we install a Blue Angel sump pump to pump the water safely away from your home and foundation.

The Importance of a Battery Backup and a Dehumidifier

A waterproofing system only protects your home if it has power. But what about power outages? To ensure your basement stays water-free, we recommend a backup sump pump installed alongside your primary pump. 

Additionally, we recommend a professional basement dehumidifier to maintain the humidity in your basement so that it never reaches a level that allows mold growth.

When you have all the right components, an interior basement waterproofing system will last years, keeping your home safe and your basement dry.

Maintaining Your Basement Waterproofing

Just like your car needs regular maintenance and an oil change, your waterproofing system also requires a routine checkup. Blue Umbrella offers regular inspections as a part of our Umbrella Maintenance Plan. This way, you can focus on your life without worrying about your waterproofing system failing when you least expect it.

What About Exterior Waterproofing

Another option to protect your Bergenfield home from invasive water and moisture is exterior basement waterproofing. Here's how it works.

  • We excavate your exterior foundation to prepare the outside of your basement walls for waterproofing.
  • Our team then installs a blue skin membrane, sealant, and drainage board against the wall to seal it from outside water.
  • The excavated soil is then backfilled onto your foundation to complete the job.

We know which kind of waterproofing your home requires. Usually, exterior waterproofing is best for new construction. However, interior waterproofing is a better, more practical method for existing homes as it is less invasive but just as effective.

Basement Waterproofing: Keeps Your Home Dry and More!

Along with keeping groundwater out of your home, basement waterproofing protects you and your loved ones from the side effects of a wet basement. When water lingers in your basement, it leads to mold growth and wood rot, attracting pests, including termites, ants, and dust mites.

Wood rot compromises the structural integrity of your home's wooden supports. Mold spores and dust mites are notorious allergens that trigger allergic reactions and even aggravate asthma symptoms.

By protecting your Bergenfield home with basement waterproofing, you're also protecting the health and well-being of you and your loved ones!

New Jersey Crawl Space Encapsulation

Bergenfield's Contractors for Crawl Space Encapsulation & Waterproofing

The original idea behind crawl spaces was to create a protective buffer between your home and the moisture from the soil beneath. While the logic seemed sound, in reality, it doesn't work. Instead, crawl spaces become traps for humidity and water, especially in humid zones and during warm seasons. As moisture gets trapped, crawl space problems like mold growth and wood rot appear.

Here's how Blue Umbrella will save your Bergenfield crawl space.

  • We remove any standing water from your crawl space.
  • Our crawl space specialists install drainage channels (French drains) along the perimeter of the crawl space.
  • The French drains capture any groundwater, leading it to a crawl space sump pump that evacuates the water from the crawl space via an exterior drainage line.
  • The exterior drainage line deposits the water outside your home a safe distance away.
  • Our team seals your crawl space with a thick, protective vinyl liner over the crawl space floor and walls. We seal off any crawl space openings (doors and vents).
  • We install a crawl space dehumidifier to control humidity and prevent mold growth from occurring.

With your crawl space properly waterproofed and sealed, outside moisture is kept outside. For all your crawl space encapsulation and waterproofing needs in Bergenfield, choose Blue Umbrella Waterproofing!

How Important is a Vapor Barrier in My Crawl Space?

Very! A vapor barrier acts as a shield to protect your crawl space and home from outside moisture. Our crawl space encapsulation solutions use a high-quality 14-mil Flexi-Seal vapor barrier. This thick, durable barrier will make your Bergenfield crawl space safe and dry. 

Additionally, an encapsulated crawl space can even improve the air quality of your living space. When a crawl space gets filled with outside humidity and mold spores, any moisture and odors get sucked upwards into your living space by the Stack Effect or chimney effect. Encapsulating your crawl space keeps all that nastiness out!

New Jersey Foundation Repair Company

The Most Trusted Name in Foundation Repair in Bergenfield, NJ

Along with basements and crawl spaces, Blue Umbrella also solves basement cracks and damaged foundation walls. If you think you might have a foundation issue, there are three types of cracks you might see:

Here are the three common cracks that you may encounter in your foundation:

  • Vertical Cracks: Sometimes, these cracks appear because concrete cures and dries after construction. But if you notice these cracks growing, water leaking through, or efflorescence occurring around the cracks, your foundation needs repair.
  • Horizontal Cracks: Typically, horizontal cracks appear when your basement walls are pushed inwards due to hydrostatic pressure. Your walls may begin to bulge, bow, tile, or shear. It is crucial to address these problems before the deflection grows worse.
  • Stair-step Cracks: Like the lines between a connectable toy brick set, these cracks appear in the mortar lines between the bricks or cement blocks of a foundation wall. These cracks could be a bad sign of uneven foundation settlement occurring.

These foundation problems aren't going to fix themselves. They'll only get worse with time! That's why it is essential to address these foundation problems as soon as you find them. 

That's why Blue Umbrella Waterproofing doesn't cut corners when it comes to foundation repair in Bergenfield, NJ. Our foundation repair specialists are equipped with cutting-edge products made right here in the USA, offering the unbeatable quality and reliable results your home needs.

The Foundation Repairs That Provide Results Without the Disruption

Blue Umbrella prides itself on providing foundation repair solutions that are both minimally invasive and long-lasting. As a company that uses quality products by Fortress Stabilization Systems, we make your foundation walls stronger than they were before.

Carbon Fiber Straps (Carbon Fiber Strips):

Ideal for basement walls with a deflection of 2 inches or less. Carbon fiber is renowned for its greater-than-steel tensile strength and its popularity as a material in the naval, aerospace, and home repair industries. But do you know what's even better? The combined strength of both carbon fiber and kevlar! 

With Fortress Stabilization Systems' InvisiBeam ICC-ES-certified carbon fiber straps, your basement walls are made stronger than ever before - certainly stronger than they would be with generic carbon fiber fabric.

Unlike generic carbon fiber straps, Invisibeam utilizes top and bottom anchors for even better reinforcement. There is also a lifetime warranty.

Steel I-Beam Installation: For when basement walls are experiencing a deflection of 2 inches or more. Blue Umbrella offers steel I-beam installation to put a stop to basement wall movement. We install the I-beams four feet apart and along the affected wall. I-beams are the right solution for intense wall bowing, tilting, and tipping.
