If you are a homeowner worried about water damage around your foundation, or you have recently experienced a flood, you need to take immediate action. Jersey Dry offers exterior waterproofing services to protect the structural integrity of your home. Floods and storm water runoff deteriorate cement foundations over time. If left unchecked, a foundation will begin to experience cracks that promote water seepage. In severe cases, basements will suffer water damage, which promotes mold and other destructive situations that will eventually weaken the structural integrity of a home or business. New Jersey homeowners concerned about water damage around a foundation or in a basement must acquire an inspection to determine what type of exterior waterproofing service is necessary.
Protecting Your Home from Surface Water and Groundwater
Both surface water and groundwater around your home are enemies to your foundation and basement. Surface water (rain or snow) begins its destructive nature by causing stains along the top of basement walls. Basements located in areas susceptible to large amounts of surface water will suffer from wet basement walls all the way down to the floor. Damp and wet basements are a perfect environment for insects, mold and other destructive forces that require immediate attention. Groundwater will also affect basements and crawl spaces in a negative way, creating rust stains caused by a dampness and leakage. Jersey Dry will assess the level of water damage around your foundation or in your basement to provide an accurate estimate for exterior waterproofing services.
