A More Detailed Inspection for Basement Water Damage

Even if none of the above problems seem to exist, continue with a more detailed inspection of your basement walls.

    • Poured concrete walls
      efflorescence (a whitish powder) could indicate seepage and porosity that tend to worsen.

 

    • Wall surfaces
      Search for vertical or horizontal cracks. Some may have fully penetrated the wall, opening routes for water entry – depending on local water table and soil conditions.

 

    • Construction joints
      Explore for openings where basement walls and floors meet. Such gaps can admit water and insects, as well as lead to cracked floors.

 

    • Mortar joints
      Inspect mortar joints especially around below-grade piping and conduits when leakage appears, your floor space could be rendered unsafe for storage, carpeting or laundering use.

 

    • Structural points
      Examine corners where frames butt against foundation walls. These junctures are often uneven, resulting in gaps.

 

    • Efflorescence
      The appearance of efflorescence warns that basement water seepage is threatening your foundations and that cracks will endanger your basement floors.

 

    • Water pipes
      Check your pipes for excessive condensation.

 

  • Masonry block walls
    Look for signs of staining in the block closest to the basement floor. This could mean water is building up inside the wall and deteriorating the block’s integrity.

Testimonials

This was the second visit by Vulcan – the service technicians were very professional and did an amazing job – reviewed the project with me and explained what they were going to do and why they needed to do it – then they started right in and did the work. I would highly recommend this crew to anyone looking to get a water issue resolved in their basement.

Great service, very knowledgable staff and hard working crew! Install went well: 160 linear feet of underdrain pipe and crushed stone with 2 sump pits (one pit with 1 pump and the other upper pit with 2 pumps). Pumps run fine when needed. We now have a dry finished basement with peace of mind. Thanks Vulcan, great job!

Our basement flooded several times and had water level of up to 4 feet in one corner of the house. Vulcan assessed the situation and added french drains and new sump pump. They were very professional and not too costly. We haven’t had any issues since, this was in early 2000s.
