New Jersey Basement Waterproofing Company

Fort Lee, NJ's Most Trusted Contractor in Basement Waterproofing

Having a swimming pool on your Fort Lee property is a dream that many homeowners share. What nobody wants, though, is a flooded basement! Waterproofing your home requires a deep understanding of water intrusion problem signs (some examples include water seepage, mold, and excess humidity) and determining problem sources. That's where the experts at Blue Umbrella come in!

With decades of experience, our waterproofing experts will help find all the problem signs and determine the problem sources that need addressing. Then, they will formulate a customized waterproofing solution to ensure your home stays safe, dry, and healthy!

What If I Find Efflorescence on My Basement Wall?

Have you noticed a strange, almost fluffy white substance on your basement's concrete wall or floor? It's likely something that's called efflorescence. It isn't mold, as some might worry, but a collection of salty deposits from the concrete. But how did it get there?

When water seeps through your basement's concrete, it dissolves any salt it comes into contact with in the concrete. That dissolved salt then gets carried along with the water up to the surface of your basement wall or floor. When that water dries, the salt gets left behind and crystallizes, forming the efflorescence you see.

While it's not dangerous, efflorescence is a sign that your basement is experiencing water intrusion problems. If not addressed, you may experience more wet basement problems as time progresses.

New Jersey Crawl Space Encapsulation

The #1 Crawl Space Encapsulation & Waterproofing in Fort Lee, NJ

Does your home sometimes smell musty and humid, especially after a heavy rain? Even if you double-check the windows and doors, that odorous air may be coming from beneath your feet. 

Crawl spaces tend to become traps for water and humidity, which then causes mold growth, wood rot, and even attracts termites. But that humid, moldy air doesn't just stay down there–that nasty air also flows up into your living spaces.

Blue Umbrella's crawl space encapsulation and waterproofing solutions can help you breathe freely again! Our experts use only the best quality products to seal your crawl space against outside moisture and protect it from water intrusion.

Here's how Blue Umbrella Waterproofing saves and protects your crawl space!

  • Blue Umbrella Waterproofing begins by removing any standing water in your crawl space.
  • Then, our crawl space experts install drainage channels along the perimeter of your crawl space. Any captured water will be guided to the sump pit.
  • Then, we install a Blue Angel sump pump into the sump pit. We also use the Shipshape sump pump monitoring system.
  • Next, we'll seal your crawl space with a protective 14-mil Flexi-Seal vapor barrier. This keeps outside moisture out of your crawl space. We will also seal any openings, such as your crawl space vents and doors.
  • We also install an AprilAire crawl space dehumidifier to provide an extra layer of defense against excess humidity, mold growth, and wood rot.

New Jersey Foundation Repair Company

Fort Lee's Authority in Foundation Repair

You've probably heard that foundation cracks are normal to see–but that's only if they've been there since construction, formed when the concrete was drying.

If you suddenly discover a foundation crack where there hasn't been one, chances are an external factor is creating it. In those cases, addressing the problem as soon as possible is important. Allowing a foundation crack to get worse can lead to other foundation problems and allow groundwater to leak through.

Imagine the foundation to be the hull of a ship. If the ship has sprung a leak, you'd want to patch it up as soon as possible to avoid sinking. The same goes for a cracked foundation; it could mean more trouble to come if something isn't done.

Fortunately, Blue Umbrella has the industry-leading solutions you need, whether you face a bowing, leaning, or shearing basement wall.

Carbon Kevlar Fiber Straps

Using the incredible strength of carbon fiber AND kevlar, Blue Umbrella proudly uses Fortress Stabilization Systems' InvisiBeam ICC-ES-certified carbon fiber straps to reinforce your basement walls. These are perfect for basement walls with less than 2 inches of deflection.

Steel I-Beams:

For basement walls experiencing a deflection of over 2 inches, steel I-beams offer the strength and support needed to prevent your basement wall from moving further.

What Causes a Bowing Basement Wall?

Bowing basement walls, also described as bulging basement walls, occur when the wall begins to bow inwards along the middle of the wall. Bowing is usually caused by a significant amount of pressure being applied to the wall over time. For most cases, the cause is what's known as hydrostatic pressure.

Whenever it rains, all that water in the soil can place a lot of weight on your basement walls. While the concrete may hold strong for a long while, it will slowly but surely weaken because of this repeated water pressure. That's when a lateral crack will form across the middle of the wall and start to bow inward.

Blue Umbrella's foundation repair experts will help you find the best solution for your bowing basement wall or any other foundation problems in Fort Lee, NJ!
