Passaic, NJ's Favorite Basement Waterproofing Contractor
Water is essential in your community, and the Passaic River plays a vital role in the Passaic community. But that doesn't mean you should have water in your basement. Too much moisture in the home can lead to mold growth, wood rot, termites, and even attract larger pests like rats. Who needs that?
Blue Umbrella knows well that every home is special and requires a unique solution. That's why our basement waterproofing solutions are made according to your home's specific needs so that every problem source is addressed and your home is kept dry and healthy for many years to come!
Interior and Exterior Waterproofing: Which do I need?
There are two kinds of waterproofing. Interior waterproofing involves a system being installed inside your basement, while exterior waterproofing involves a system being built around the perimeter of your home outside.
But which of these systems do you need? It depends!
Exterior waterproofing is best installed while your home is being built – otherwise, it requires soil excavation around the foundation and can be disruptive to a finished home's landscaping.
Interior waterproofing is perfect for existing homes because it's done inside the basement; this means it's less intrusive and more affordable for homeowners.
How Interior Waterproofing is Done
Here's a quick look at the interior waterproofing process:
- First, Blue Umbrella drills weep holes along the bottom of your basement walls.
- Next, we install drainage channels along the basement perimeter beneath the floor slab. The drainage channels will lead any captured water to a sump pit.
- We install a Blue Angel sump pump in the sump pit that pumps any water up and out of your basement.
- As an added line of defense against hazardous mold, wood rot, and excess humidity, we also installed a basement dehumidifier.
How Exterior Waterproofing is Done
Here's a brief explanation of the exterior waterproofing process:
- Blue Umbrella first excavates the soil around your exterior foundation.
- Next, we install a blue skin membrane, sealant, and drainage board against the foundation wall.
- Finally, we backfill the excavated soil around your foundation and your exterior waterproofing system is ready to go!
It's important to note that these are summaries of the two waterproofing processes. It may sound simple, but an expert hand must ensure the waterproofing system is installed correctly and does its job! For all your basement waterproofing needs, always count on Blue Umbrella to get the job done 100% right!
Your #1 Local Company in Crawl Space Encapsulation and Waterproofing
Just like basements, crawl spaces in homes also need protection against outside water and moisture. Historically, crawl spaces were meant to help protect your property against the moisture in the soil below. But unfortunately, it doesn't quite work out as planned.
Often, crawl spaces become traps for humidity and water, turning into miniature swamps, especially when it rains. Worse still, due to what's known as the Stack Effect, your musty crawl space can negatively impact the air quality in the rest of your home.
Here's how Blue Umbrella Waterproofing saves and protects your crawl space!
- To begin, Blue Umbrella will remove any standing water in your crawl space.
- Next, our crawl space team will install drainage channels along the perimeter of your crawl space, all leading to a sump pit.
- We then install a Blue Angel sump pump into the sump pit to evacuate any captured water.
- We next seal your crawl space with a thick, protective vinyl liner. We'll also seal any openings like crawl space vents and doors.
- We also install a crawl space dehumidifier for extra protection against mold growth and wood rot.
What's the Stack Effect?
Does the air in your home sometimes smell earthy and musty? Is your crawl space also having moisture problems and mold growth? It's likely connected. Due to the difference in temperature and air pressure, the air in your crawl space gets sucked into your living space like a vacuum.
Some of the icky things may be traveling from your crawl space into your home!
- Mold spores
- Dust mite particles
Fortunately, crawl space encapsulation and waterproofing can protect your Passaic home from these problems. With Blue Umbrella, healthy air, and a safe crawl space is just a call away!
