Are you finishing a wet basement? Basement Systems can show you the steps to take to waterproof your wet basement before finishing. If you are aware of a ground water seepage problem in your basement, we highly recommend fixing the leak before finishing.
One of the most daunting challenges about finishing a basement is managing existing moisture and flooding in the space. If you have a damp or wet basement, then sooner or later, whatever organic materials you store in the space are going to be ruined.
Basement Systems can help you plan a finished basement that won't leak and will manage potential floods and humidity. Call or e-mail them today for a free, no-obligation basement design quote!
They serve in South Dakota, and nearby areas.
Even if your basement has never flooded before, the threat of a flood is ever-present in a basement. Groundwater is only half of your problem- there's also a wide variety of potential plumbing failures throughout your home.
And when water floods upstairs, it's going to flow downstairs-- right into your finished basement.
You can protect your finished basement, starting now. Follow these two simple steps to make sure your basement looks beautiful-- and stays that way.
The Total Basement Finishing System uses only waterproof products when we remodel your basement. However, what you put in your basement after it's finished could still be damaged..
If your basement has ever flooded, you can be sure it's going to again. And even if your basement finishing products are waterproof, not everything you put in your finished basement will be.
What you can do:
Basement water means big problems for your finished space. Flooding and humidity will lead to mold, rot, and odors in the space, which ruins the space as a comfortable living area.
Even an occasional flood can leave lingering problems, and mold can begin to grow in as little as 24-48 hours.
A dry basement will be ready for finishing. Otherwise, you may be building a major problem that will emerge later on down the road. Call or e-mail us today to get a free quote!
Quick Tip: When you waterproof your basement, follow up with a basement dehumidifier. Choose one that's self-draining and energy efficient, and your home will be dry, odor-free, and much more comfortable.
Our basement finishing system is designed with waterproof materials in mind. Because of this, we include a mold resistant and/or waterproof written warranty with each of our products.
Even with a basement waterproofing system in place, your basement will easily flood if there's an issue with your plumbing. With so much plumbing in your home, it could just be a matter of time. Protect your basement today!
Avoid using any organic materials in your basement finishing system. Organic products are susceptible to mold and moisture damage and they can become irreparably damaged in a flood.
Materials such as fiberglass that use dyes in their products are also susceptible to staining, as these dyes can seep through whatever they are in contact with.
