Each year, water causes millions of dollars of damage. Water-related issues, including basement flooding, mildew and mold, foundation and property damage affects thousands of homes, and sometimes the issues are not addressed because homeowners simply do not realize the severity of the situation. They also sometimes do not realize that these problems can be completely eliminated with waterproofing services.
Professional Waterproofing Services
Here at Gold Medal Service, we offer professional basement waterproofing services to customers throughout New Jersey. We have a few options to help our neighbors who are dealing with water-related problems.
If you aren’t sure if you are in need of waterproofing services, here are a few things to look for:
- Standing water
- Cracks in the walls of your home
- Cracks in the foundation
- Moisture on your foundation
- A damp, humid feeling in your basement
In many cases, interior drainage systems are effective in preventing wet basements. Interior drainage systems consist of a perforated pipe that is installed along the inside perimeter of your basement floor at the footing level. This pipe is installed in a trench that is filled with gravel and lined with a filter cloth. Moisture infiltrating your basement collects in this pipe and is removed from the building either using a sump pump or via gravity if the topography allows.
We also offer additional services to keep your basement dry, including interior and exterior waterproofing spray, sump pump installation, drain repairs and more. At Gold Medal Service, we are committed to helping our customers keep their homes and businesses safe and dry with foundation waterproofing services.
Why You Need Waterproofing Services
If you’ve only noticed small leaks in your basement, you may think that professional waterproofing is not a necessary expense. This couldn’t be further from the truth. A small leak is a sign of a potentially much larger problem. In time, even the smallest leaks can lead to structural damage, including foundation damage that could decrease the structural integrity of your home or business.
In addition, water leaks cause mold and mildew that can cause allergies and respiratory issues. Certain types of mold are extremely dangerous and can lead to major health issues. Taking care of basement moisture is an essential step in ensuring the well-being of your home and your entire family. For basement waterproofing services in New Jersey, trust Gold Medal Service.
