• Leaking Basement Repair

  • When you notice warning signs that you might have a basement leak, it is imperative that you call a professional for an inspection. Wet basements can cause the growth of mold and mildew which can jeopardize the health of you and your family.

  • Having repaired over 100,000 basements and foundations, our skilled Tri-State team knows how to find the cause of your water problems and fix them immediately. Our waterproofing specialists can come to your home and assess the extent of any necessary repair to stop the leaks so that you can go back to living comfortably.

    Seeking the service of a basement repair contractor can help you find possible causes of foundation issues such as the following:

    • Failed Footer Drains or Blocked French Drains
    • Hydrostatic Pressure (the force of the water against the wall)
    • High Water Table (when the ground water is high)

    Builders typically install drain tile, footer drains, or french drains to aid in preventing your water table from rising and to prevent hydrostatic pressure. If the water table can be controlled, you will most likely prevent the need for basement wall or cracked foundation repair. The problem with these types of drainage systems is that they can become clogged with sediment because they are buried underneath the ground at footer level and water must pass through a lot of soil to travel through them. As the water passes through, it picks up soil, sediment, mud, and sand forming a blockage in the drain pipes over time. Once these pipes are blocked, the water table may rise creating hydrostatic pressure below the basement floor and against the basement wall.

  • Foundation Excavation

    Due to certain construction methods, the best repair method for fixing a leaking basement is to excavate the foundation. Foundation excavation is to remove the soil from the foundation in a designated area and re-waterproof with a membrane and new foundation drain. Over the life of a foundation, situations arise that cause the foundation to leak. Problems such as cracks, settling, clogged drains, and an inferior waterproofing agent can all be causations. Tri-state offers transferable lifetime warranties so that you never have to worry about these problems again. Free yourself of stress and let us handle your foundation repair.

  • Crack Injection

    Water can sneak into your basement through water lines, sewer lines, and/or any utilities that are below ground and channeled through your foundation. Foundation walls can also develop cracks that may allow water to seep in. These leaks can be easy and quick to fix but it is important that you don’t hesitate to call for an inspection to prevent a bigger problem. Crack injection seals the leaking area to prevent further leakage. This two-hour repair is done inside the home with no disturbance to your landscaping.
