Bloomfield's Top Basement Waterproofing Company
Flooded basements can be both damaging to your home and hazardous to your health. Blue Umbrella Waterproofing knows that every Bloomfield, NJ, home is unique, which means a custom-designed solution is best. It all starts with a free inspection of your home as our waterproofing team looks for both problem signs and problem sources.

Interior Basement Waterproofing or Exterior Basement Waterproofing?
In truth, both waterproofing methods effectively protect your basement from water intrusion. Blue Umbrella has the expertise to know which method is best for your Bloomfield property.
A Quick Look at Interior Waterproofing
Here's a quick look at how we do interior waterproofing:
- Blue Umbrella Waterproofing begins by drilling weep holes around the perimeter of your basement, along the bottom of the walls.
- Our waterproofing experts next install drainage channels along the basement perimeter under the floor slab. These drainage channels are installed at a pitch to immediately lead any captured water to the sump pit.
- Next, we install a Blue Angel sump pump in the sump pit to push any collected water to the outside of your home.
- We also install a basement dehumidifier to prevent hazardous mold growth and humidity build-up.
- Enjoy a safe and dry basement in your Bloomfield home!
The Exterior Waterproofing Process
Here's how we do exterior waterproofing:
- First, we excavate the soil around your exterior foundation.
- Our waterproofing team then installs a blue skin membrane, sealant, and drainage board against the foundation wall.
- Finally, we backfill the excavated soil onto your foundation.
While these summarized descriptions may make it sound simple, waterproofing requires an experienced hand and a knowledgeable team to ensure that the installed waterproofing system works as intended. Generally, interior basement waterproofing is the better option for existing homes and exterior waterproofing for homes that are being built.
Blue Umbrella has decades of experience in waterproofing homes and commercial properties across New Jersey. Whether you need interior basement waterproofing or exterior basement waterproofing, your Bloomfield property is in good hands with Blue Umbrella!
Keeping Your Waterproofing At 100%
Like your car or HVAC system, your waterproofing system requires maintenance to work as best as possible. Blue Umbrella offers our own Umbrella Maintenance Plan to ensure your waterproofing is prepared for all rainy days ahead.
A working waterproofing system keeps your basement dry and prevents health risks such as mold growth from occurring due to excess moisture. By protecting against repair costs and moisture-related problems, our Umbrella Maintenance Plan is an excellent investment for any property owner in Bloomfield.
A Dry New Jersey Home is a Healthy One!
We mentioned that basement waterproofing protects your home against moisture-related problems, including health-hazardous ones. Here are some of the common issues that a wet basement can bring:
- Mold growth
- Wood rot
- Rodent pests
- Dust Mites
With a waterproof basement, these problems won't have the excess moisture they need to survive. It's like putting a massive lock on your home that moisture-related problems can't break!
Bloomfield's Most Trusted Contractor in Crawl Space Encapsulation and Waterproofing
Like basements, crawl spaces are another lower-level space for homes in Bloomfield that can help protect your home or be an entryway for water, mold, and moisture.
That's where crawl space encapsulation and waterproofing come in!
- First, Blue Umbrella removes any standing water in your crawl space.
- Next, our team installs drainage channels along the perimeter of your crawl space.
- We place a Blue Angel sump pump into a sump pit to evacuate any captured water.
- Blue Umbrella seals your crawl space with a thick, protective vinyl liner. Openings like crawl space vents and doors are closed to ensure outside moisture can't get in.
- We install a crawl space dehumidifier to further protect against mold growth, humidity, and wood rot.
- Now you have a fresh, clean crawl space ready for anything!

The Experienced Foundation Repair Experts in Bloomfield, NJ
It can be easy to overlook a crack in your foundation and think it's nothing. Unfortunately, cracks in your foundation can be a sign of problems to come, such as bowing or tilting basement walls which grow worse over time, potentially leading to foundation failure and your home becoming structurally compromised and unsafe. Blue Umbrella offers industry-leading solutions to keep your Bloomfield home from experiencing such a scenario.
Most foundation repair contractors are content to use cheaply-manufactured carbon fiber fabrics. But not us! Blue Umbrella proudly uses Fortress Stabilization Systems' InvisiBeam ICC-ES-certified carbon fiber straps. Made in America, these carbon fiber straps combine the strength of both carbon fiber AND kevlar. This industry-leading product is even used for larger commercial projects like hotels! An excellent solution for basement walls experiencing a deflection of less than 2 inches.
A popular solution for basement walls that deflect over 2 inches, steel I-beams prevent basement walls from moving further and are a good option if InvisBeam is not enough to get the job done.
Our foundation repair products work great for bowing, tilting, and shearing basement walls. You can always count on Blue Umbrella for all your foundation repairs in Bloomfield, NJ!
