Basements Where Does the Water Come From?

Most problems with water entry and wet basements inside the house are due to poor drainage on the outside. Quick action is needed since the extra moisture will lead to:

  • mold
  • mildew
  • decay

If wetness in the basement is condensation from a source inside the house, proper ventilation and dehumidification could be all that is needed to keep the area dry.
However, if water is coming from outside the house, the drainage around the exterior needs to be evaluated and improved. During your free consultation, we do a complete review of your property's drainage, including:

  • gutters, downspouts, existing drains, window wells
  • pitch of the site around the property (swales, springs)
  • assessment of water problems at the foundation
  • condition of foundation, exterior and interior

Whichever solution is needed, our 100% satisfaction guarantee applies to your basement will be dry! For a complete list of services we offer click here. Contact us for a free consultation.

Basement Waterproofing

Waterproofing your basement is the process of sealing cracks in the concrete of your foundation wall. It is applied to the inside basement wall, although waterproofing sealer can also be applied to the exterior wall of the foundation after the foundation walls have been exposed through digging. Connecticut Drainage Pros offers basement waterproofing, and our usual 100% satisfaction guarantee applies. Since waterproofing your basement does not eliminate the source of the problem and increased water pressure against your foundation wall and it has to be considered as a last resort. At Connecticut Drainage Pros, we recommend that you first take steps to redirect the water away from your foundation. Waterproofing can be used as a final step in the drainage remediation process, to ensure that a basement stays dry.
