Before Basement Waterproofing in New City

Eliminating basement moisture helps control mold, eliminates musty odors, and protects the entire home.

A wet basement is one of the worst problems for a home. Leaks and basement flooding on a regular basis cause a number of problems, including:

  • The space becomes unusable: Any items that are resting on the basement floor need to be moved up and out of the way to avoid direct contact with standing water. Standing water can damage HVAC equipment located in the basement and make a washing machine and dryer unsafe to operate.
  • Mold growth: Water in the basement creates ideal conditions for mold to grow on wood, paper, cloth, and other surfaces. Eventually, mold will destroy these materials, causing wood framing to rot and lose its structural value.
  • Unhealthy indoor air: Home mold spreads through airborne spores. This means it can become a serious indoor air pollutant and negatively impact the health of family members.

But there is no reason to worry. All of the basement waterproofing products from The Basement Transformer are custom designed to fit any home. And if you're not sure what's causing your home's wet basement, let one of our experts take a look. We offer free inspections and estimates in New City, Wallkill, New Windsor, and nearby.

Basement Waterproofing System in Poughkeepsie

Our basement waterproofing system prevents flooding and leaking that can lead to damaged appliances and belongings.

Our basement waterproofing specialists understand that in order to be successful, their strategy must include a number of critical mitigation measures. In other words, no single waterproofing solution will work to eliminate water in a typical basement. Instead, a multi-pronged "battle plan" will be put into play to ensure the long-term effectiveness of this overall waterproofing strategy.

The waterproofing system includes:

  • Exterior water control: It's important to direct roof runoff and surface water away from the foundation. A waterproofing specialist will assess the effectiveness of your home's gutter and downspout system in directing roof runoff away from the house. The specialist may also suggest grading and exterior drainage improvements that move water away from the foundation.
  • Interior drainage system: The most-effective waterproofing technique for existing basements is installing a perimeter drainage system where the foundation walls meet the floor. This drainage system collects water that leaks into the basement from hydrostatic pressure and directs it to a sump pump, where it is expelled out and away from the house.
  • Interior sump pump: A sump pump expels water out and away from the house after the water has been collected by a drainage system. The pump turns on automatically when the water in the sump pit reaches a preset level. We even provide sump pumps with battery backup, so that they can continue working even during a power outage.
  • Dehumidification: An effective way to remove excess humidity common for a basement is to install a dehumidifier. To avoid the hassle of manually emptying the dehumidifier's reservoir, the system can drain into an existing perimeter drain or sump pit. Many standard dehumidifiers available elsewhere don't have the heavy-duty features to handle humidity conditions in a below-grade space. But that's not a worry with The Basement Transformer!
