  • When it comes to wet basement problems, it can be difficult to figure out where the problem is coming from. While it’s easy to notice a crack in the wall or a bulge in the floor, there may be other issues at play that are more difficult to pick up on. Do you truly understand the causes of your wet basement problems? At Sure Dry Waterproofing, we do understand these issues on the most basic level, and we have a variety of solutions that we can use to solve those problems. Please read more below about the most common causes of wet basement and wet crawlspace problems and what we can do to fix them!

  • The Clay Bowl Effect

    When the foundation to your home was built, the soil had to be excavated in order to make space for the basement or crawlspace. While the dirt is filled back in around the foundation, it’s loose dirt, which means it’s looser and less sturdy than the surrounding soil. Because it is loose, water collects and settles in the area directly around the foundation, which ultimately puts pressure on the walls. This could cause walls to crack or bow and provide plenty of spaces where water could find its way into your home.

  • Hydrostatic Pressure

    Unfortunately, there’s not much that you can do to prevent damage from hydrostatic pressure. This happens when the soil around your foundation becomes saturated with moisture. The water in the soil expands, putting pressure on the foundation, creating cracks and finding ways to infiltrate your home. You’ll notice problems of hydrostatic pressure from after heavy downpours when the soil is oversaturated in a short period of time.

  • Why Choose Us

  • I talked to numerous waterproofing companies in the area (some of the bigger name ones with all the advertising, videos, and commercials) and I'm so glad I went with Sure Dry! Don (the owner) and his crew far surpassed my expectations: they did an excellent job, and the price was half of what the others quoted for the exact same job. Half!! Don is very honest and nice to work with! He did me a huge favor (at no cost) and had his guys bust up and carry out an old concrete sink from my basement. My basement has never looked better! I wish I would have called him years ago!!
