Waterproofing

Waterproofing Contractor

For Buffalo, Jamestown, Niagara Falls & Rochester, NY

For over 15 years the team at Morris Masonry Restoration, LLC has been providing the Buffalo area with a variety of services including basement waterproofing. The reason that basements are vulnerable to flooding is that they are partially, if not fully, built below ground. While most flooding occurs during big rains or rapid snowmelts in the spring, it can occur even during dry weather. A flooded basement can be an absolute nightmare so being aware of the common causes and taking preventative measures is the best way to keep it from becoming a reality.

Reasons Your Basement May Flood

  • The basement tiles and foundation have not been sealed properly during construction
  • Downspouts are placed too close to the basement wall or they drain towards it
  • Your gutter system is blocked with leaves, twigs or other which means it isn’t functioning optimally

Benefits of Waterproofing

  • Simple waterproofing actions like sealing cracks in the foundation can be effective in preventing basement leaks
  • High moisture levels create an unhealthy environment and can lead to mold or mildew. Waterproofing your basement helps prevent mold growth by reducing the moisture level
  • Waterproofing your basement will keep your home’s humidity levels consistent so your energy bill doesn’t fluctuate or increase
  • Water seepage through the foundation can result in structural damage by affecting the joints and edges where the flooring meets the walls. Waterproofing will protect these areas from excess water and prevent serious structural damage
