Protect Your Bristol Basement with a Drain System

Basements are more susceptible to water damage because of their location, so it’s important to protect your basement with a drain system or other waterproofing services from American Foundation & Waterproofing here in Bristol. Our drain systems and basement waterproofing can make your basement safe again. Basements tend to attract and retain more moisture simply because of the way they’re built, underground immersed in soil. Water in your basement can become a big problem, causing unsafe levels of mold, damage to belongings, and structural damage to your home. If your basement isn’t protected with an effective drain system, water can cause immense property damage and expenses.

What Causes Water in the Basement?

Basements are typically damper than the rest of the house because of poor ventilation and the soil that surrounds them. But water can also find its way into your basement through plumbing leaks, sump pump failure, and cracks in the walls or flooring. Often, water can enter your home because of hydrostatic pressure. When the soil surrounding your home becomes saturated, it puts immense pressure on your basement walls and your foundation. This pressure can cause water to seep through cracks in your masonry and even through solid concrete walls! A drainage system is one of the easiest ways to prevent water damage from occurring in your home. American Foundation & Waterproofing can provide a free inspection of your Bristol home and recommend a drainage system that’s right for you.
