Interior Basement Waterproofing
Moisture in the soil surrounding your house, and water that seeps into your basement can cause the structural integrity of your foundation to diminish. When signs of leaky basements are noticed and addressed early on, permanent damage is usually avoided. Keystone Basement Systems will customize your repair plan to your specific level of need.
The materials used to build house foundations are porous, which means water will eventually find its way into your basement. As water is literally being pushed through your foundation, it carries part of your wall with it. You only have to look at the Grand Canyon to understand what water can do to your home given enough time. The moisture that’s a by-product of your wet basement walls can cause problems for your family’s health, in addition to your house. Keystone Basement Systems will use a variety of interior basement waterproofing solutions that protect your home from water intrusion and excessive moisture in your basement.
