Water is a necessary part of our existence, but unwanted water entering the basement can not only cause damage to a structure but can create a health hazard by allowing mold and mildew to form. Many insurance companies are refusing to insure homes that have mold contamination.
One common problem is a window well that fills up and allows water to enter the basement, seeping down the foundation wall and onto the floor. If the basement is finished, the wall covering, carpeting or flooring may be damaged. Mold and mildew problems are also likely. There is more than one way to address the problem, but a permanent solution is to eliminate the window completely. Most basement windows do not allow enough light to enter to be of much benefit, so removing the problem window can far outweigh the value of a small amount of light. You will be relieved from the worry of coming home to a wet basement and we guarantee our work.
