Common causes of basement waterproofing problems are often stemmed from leaky pipes, flooding during heavy rainfall, or sump pump failures. These problems can be fixed with products like a professional-grade TripleSafe sump pump, specially designed with three pumps to ensure that you won't have to worry about your basement being flooded, even if the power goes out. Additionally, also offer thermal insulation and quality drainage systems to deposit water pumped out of your basement a safe distance away from the foundations.
Crawl spaces can often fall into disrepair a little to easily because of their location in the home as well as their function. When a crawl space is left in disrepair for too long, it can become a breeding ground for mold, mildew, and even wood rot. The way to remedy this is to install quality products like vapor barriers, dehumidifiers, and sump pumps.
If you have problems with your foundations, then it is probably caused by broken, weakened soil that can no longer support the weight of the structure. Some of the major signs of this are sagging floors, cracked floors or walls, foundation heaves, or tilting chimneys.
