Why is My Basement Flooding?
If you have recently experienced a basement flood, it’s important to understand the root cause. Even if your basement floods often, insufficient waterproofing may not be the problem.
The first step is to identify where the water came from. If your basement looks fine on the inside, with no cracks, water marks, presence of mold or mildew, or any foul smells, then your basement might not be the problem.
Instead, think outside of the basement! Look at the concrete around your home. Is it sunken, cracked, or sloped? Sunken concrete can cause water to pool up and leak into your basement.
So, what do you do if your basement if flooding? Call a polyurethane waterproofing expert like Mr. Level.
Waterproof Your Basement with Polyurethane
While most basement waterproofing companies can be expensive, polyurethane provides a more cost-effective solution. Mr. Level can lift and tilt your concrete away from your house, while providing a water-resistant seal around your home.
To level your concrete, Mr. Level drills small, dime-sized holes into your sunken concrete. Polyurethane foam is then pumped into the holes, causing it to quickly expand and raise your concrete back to its proper level.
To further restore the look and performance of your concrete, the holes will be filled, along with other possible cracks, in order to make your driveway, sidewalk, patio, or other concrete slab look good as new. The next time it rains, the water will be directed away from your home to prevent your basement from flooding.
Because of the quick cure time and minimal invasiveness of our polyurethane concrete leveling method, Mr. Level can waterproof your basement in a couple hours, with no mess or stress. Contact Mr. Level today to request a free quote.
