Basement Waterproofing

Basement waterproofing prevents water from entering the home through the basement, and it also controls any water that may enter. Basement waterproofing is a perfect way to help keep your home healthy and dry.

Basement Waterproofing Contractors Serving FL, NY & PA.

We expect basement water leaking and flooding problems for most homeowners and property owners. This rings true in states like Florida, which experience storms and flooding, or like New York, with its yearly lake-effect snowstorms. That's why Midstate Basement Authorities is Central New York's trusted basement waterproofing company, along with Pennsylvania and Florida.

Even a finished basement often suffers severe and sometimes permanent damage when not adequately waterproofed, such as mold and mildew growth or structural damage to a foundational wall. When neglectful of these issues, they increase the chance of structural failure and also increase basement waterproofing costs when the time comes.

Preventing A Wet Basement

Basement waterproofing is an essential part of any healthy renovation or preservation project, as it helps to protect your investment and ensure a healthy basement. Many basement waterproofing methods can keep your basement walls and floors dry for years.

Deciding which is best for your specific project is the most challenging part! So, to be confident, we've got the most common means of basement waterproofing covered for you in the sections below. Clients shouldn't make such a crucial decision in the dark, so we encourage you to read through it or contact our contractors to help ease decision-making.

Interior Basement Waterproofing

A practical method to waterproof your basement is through interior waterproofing. This process involves installing a waterproofing system in the interior of your home, be it in your foundation wall, basement wall, or sublevel floor.

We install these systems to prevent water from entering your basement while also controlling any moisture and humidity that may enter. And as basement waterproofing pros, our contractors use only the best interior waterproofing solutions for protecting your home from water damage.

With waterproofing techniques like interior drain tiles, encapsulation systems, sump pumps, vapor barriers, and more, there isn't a sublevel that our contractors can't keep dry!

Exterior Basement Waterproofing

One of the best ways to dry your basement is to waterproof your home's exterior walls. This means going beyond applying the standard coat of waterproofing paint on exterior concrete walls. Exterior waterproofing is a process that involves installing one or more systems on the outside of your home that keeps water from entering.

Midstate Basement Authorities are experts in exterior waterproofing and use the latest technologies and products to protect your home from water damage. We offer a variety of external waterproofing solutions, so you can be sure you're getting the best basement waterproofing services possible.

We've solutions such as outdoor drainage systems like exterior French drains, drain tiles, waterproof membranes, and more, all perfect for keeping your home dry.

Whether you have a full basement or just a crawl space, removing the humidity in the air that causes musty odors is essential. Basement dehumidifiers are vital to any basement waterproofing or crawl space repair project as they help remove excess moisture from the air.

Installing a dehumidifier can significantly improve a property's quality of life. For instance, air quality should improve in a structure's sublevel and on every floor of a given dehumidified property. This is because the HVAC or ventilation systems move cleaner air throughout a structure rather than bacteria-filled, stuffy, and humid air from a wet basement. 

Interior French Drains

French drains are great for capturing interior runoff in crawl spaces and basements. These drains are time-tested solutions for diverting water away from your home, and they're just as effective when installed inside your foundation.

We install French interior drains along the inside perimeter of your basement, and they work by channeling water into a drain connected to a sump pump. This system will keep your basement dry even during heavy rains and help reduce humidity levels in your home.

So if you're looking for an effective way to waterproof your basement, a French interior drain is an excellent option for any property.

Sump Pumps

A sump pump installation specifically solves basement water problems after they have occurred. So naturally, we install sump pumps in the lowest part of the basement. When water accumulates, it pumps the water out and away from your home. In addition, Midstate Basement Authorities offers a wide variety of secondary pumps with our basement waterproofing services.

So whether you need a contractor for a large commercial property or help with your residential water leakage issues, sump pumps always make for a safe choice with internal waterproofing measures.

Battery Backup

A pump will not function correctly without a reliable source of electricity, so if you expect a power outage, it's good to have a failsafe in place. Without a working sump pump, the water in your basement will quickly rise and begin to cause damage. That's why Midstate Basement Authorities suggest installing battery backup systems for all of our sump pump installations to ensure a healthy home.

A battery backup system keeps your pump running during storms and power outages, so you can rest assured knowing you have a healthy basement protected from moisture.

The Right Basement Floor Pitch

Our contractors at Midstate Basement Authorities ensure your basement floor pitches correctly during your pump installation. Our professional repair team creates an angle on your basement floor so that any water will flow towards the drainage system and out of your home. This simple system is essential for keeping your home dry and your crawl space or basement moisture and mold-free.
