Owning a home comes with responsibilities, and one frequently overlooked is the health of your basement or crawlspace. At Basement Technologies of Western NC, we specialize in providing comprehensive waterproofing solutions tailored to your needs. We work to detect and address any moisture problems beneath your home.

Three Common Problems Revealed by a Basement Inspection

These are the three of the most common issues a basement inspection uncovers:

  1. Inadequate Drainage Systems. A drainage system’s primary function is to direct water away from your home’s foundation. Not all systems, however, are created equal. An inadequately designed or poorly functioning drainage system can cause water to pool around the foundation, causing structural damage, mold growth, and other moisture-related issues. During a basement inspection, our expert team will evaluate your current set-up and advise you on how to keep your home dry.
  2. Cracks in the Foundation and Settlement. Foundations can develop cracks and other issues over time due to natural settlement or external pressures. Water may seep into your basement or crawlspace as a result, causing damage to your belongings, walls, and floors. Our thorough inspection will reveal any foundation issues. We can then recommend the best waterproofing solution to protect your home and ensure long-term stability.
  3. Insufficient Ventilation. Proper ventilation is essential for keeping a healthy, moisture-free basement or crawlspace. Poor ventilation can cause increased humidity, condensation, and mold growth, impacting the air quality in your home and your family’s health.
