Waterproof Basement Systems: Waterproofing Walls & Floor Sealers


How To Waterproof Your Basement

If you’re the owner of an older home or poorly constructed new home, you may discover that the exterior drainage system on your property has become nonfunctional and needs repairs.  These basement waterproofing systems usually consist of footer drain tiles that surround the exterior of your basement and move excess water away from the home foundation before it pushes against your walls and causes damage.

Basement flooding and water damage problems are usually caused by a phenomenon called hydrostatic pressure.  When the soil around your home becomes saturated with water, it presses slowly and steadily against your basement walls and even the floor.  Over time, this water pressure can cause cracks in your walls and floor, and flooding and water damage can occur.  Products for waterproofing basement walls can help you keep excess water away from your foundation and solve the problem of a flooded basement effectively.

A List of Cities in Ohio Affected by Home Flooding and Water Damage

Obviously, your basement is less likely to be affected by flooding from heavy rains if you live in drier western locations in the United States.  In fact, many homes in southwestern states aren’t even built with basements, since the soil is too sandy to allow for safe construction.  In these cases, new construction homes are built on a slab rather than on a sunken foundation.

In many parts of the South, flooding and moisture are just such an expected part of life that many homes are built with no basements at all – it would be foolish to expect those basements NOT to flood.

In the Midwest, focusing here on Ohio, most cities and towns deal with flooding at one part of the year or another. There is a good amount of rain in Ohio, plenty of snow, and the top of Ohio borders on the Great Lakes – specifically Lake Erie – so water and moisture are an accepted part of life yet not expected to invade homes. Below is a partial list of cities and towns in Ohio where basement waterproofing companies and contractors set-up shop and make their living professionally.
