Basement Waterproofing in Indianapolis
If you are like most homeowners, your basement is a place where you store Halloween decorations, Christmas lights, and old skis – but there’s no reason why this perfectly usable space can’t be used for something other than storage. It can also be a place where you can entertain guests, play games, and relax with family members. To put it simply, your basement should be a space in your home that you are proud to show off. Unfortunately, many homeowners shy away from the idea of turning their basement into a practical room because of the risk of water damage. This concern is completely understandable. After all, why invest in a basement remodel only to have it become damaged by water?
A wet or flooded basement is the last thing any homeowner wants to deal with. At InHouse Construction Services, we get that. That is why we offer basement waterproofing to the people of Indianapolis and the surrounding areas. Our years of experience in the construction industry coupled with our commitment to getting the job done right means that you won’t have to worry about water damage every time it rains.
Do you have a wet basement problem?
No matter where you live, Mother Nature always wins, and water is a capable of entering your basement in more than one way. Determining how the water is coming in ensures that we waterproof properly, and it is usually due to one of two reasons:
- Clay Bowl Effect: Occurs when water collects around a foundation due to lose soil around a foundation.
- Hydrostatic Pressure: Occurs when soil around a foundation absorbs moistures and expands, putting pressure on walls and windows.
After we have performed a thorough inspection, we will embark on the best course of action to solve your basement problem. We may perform the following:
- Repair cracks in walls and flooring
- Replace windows
- Install a perimeter drainage system
- Install a sump pump
