New Jersey Basement Waterproofing Company

Closter, NJ's Top Basement Waterproofing Contractor

Many New Jersey homeowners have experienced a flooded basement at least once, but many don't realize how serious a problem basement water is.

Is It OK to Have a Wet Basement?

Absolutely not. The presence of invasive water and moisture can lead to a host of problems for you and your home. A wet basement is an open invitation for other issues, including:

  • Wood rot
  • Termites
  • Mold spores
  • Dust mites
  • Uncomfortable humidity
  • Damage to foundation concrete

A wet basement attracts termites and allows the wood to rot, destroying floors, walls, and support beams. 

Mold spores and dust mites thrive in damp environments. Spores and mites are notorious for triggering allergic reactions and asthma attacks. Certain molds are toxic and can cause infections in those with weakened immune systems. 

A wet basement is more than a nuisance. It can destroy your property and can compromise your health.

New Jersey Crawl Space Encapsulation

Closter's Local Experts in Crawl Space Encapsulation & Waterproofing

Closter, NJ, homes without basements typically have a crawl space. But a crawl space is just as vulnerable to water-related problems as a basement.

How Much Moisture is OK in My Crawl Space?

According to the EPA, to avoid moisture problems, keep your crawl space free of standing water and maintain a relative humidity of 30%-50%. Anything above 60% will likely trigger mold growth and attract termites and other pests. 

You need professional waterproofing and encapsulation to keep excess moisture and humidity out of your crawl space. 

Our Waterproofing & Encapsulation System

To protect your crawl space, Blue Umbrella uses crawl space waterproofing and encapsulation to seal off the area from any outside moisture and humidity. 

Our crawl space encapsulation and waterproofing system may include these components:

  • 4" white, rigid PVC drainage channels
  • Blue Angel Sump Pumps, Professional and Premium Series
  • ShipShape Sump Pump Monitoring System
  • Richtech Industries’ 14-mil Flexi-Seal vapor barrier
  • AprilAire E070 70-Pint Dehumidifier

New Jersey Foundation Repair Company

Industry-leading Foundation Repair for Your Closter, NJ Home

As the saying goes, a house is only as strong as its foundation! If you have foundation problems downstairs, those problems may lead to issues upstairs, like wall cracks, uneven floors, and jammed doors.

To fix all these problems, you need to fix your foundation. Blue Umbrella uses reliable carbon-kevlar straps and steel I-beams to correct leaning, shearing, or bowing basement walls.

Carbon Kevlar Fiber Straps

Great for basement walls with less than 2 inches of deflection. We use Fortress Stabilization Systems' InvisiBeam ICC-ES-certified carbon-kevlar fiber straps. These carbon-kevlar straps are hands-down the best in the market.

Steel I-Beams:

For basement walls experiencing a deflection of over 2 inches but less than 3 inches. Steel I-beams are a classic choice when it comes to basement wall reinforcement. With multiple steel I-beams installed, the I-beams stop a moving basement wall in its tracks.

When Should I Be Worried About Foundation Cracks?

While it is a good idea to give us a call if you see any foundation cracks, some cracks are more severe than others.

Shrinkage Cracks. Concrete naturally shrinks over time, leaving small, thin cracks in your foundation. These thin cracks are generally not linear or continuous and usually do not denote any underlying foundation issue. 

Cracks of Concern. Cracks that you do need to pay attention to are structural foundation cracks. These cracks are usually around one-eighth of an inch or wider, are linear, and generally run horizontally in poured concrete foundations or in a stair-step pattern in CMU block wall foundations. 

Structural foundation cracks denote wall movement (tipping, shearing, or bowing).
