Basement Repair Services in MA & RI

Basement Repair imageA foundation that has become compromised by water penetration is not a problem that is going to go away or fix itself. In fact, it must be fixed or the structural integrity of your home will be put in serious jeopardy. Undesirable water entrance is usually the major reason behind a damaged or leaked basement. If you’ve noticed the primary signs of water penetration in your basement it’s time to call Pioneer Basement for quick and effective basement repair services in MA & RI.

Causes of Basement Problems in MA and RI

Window Well: If the window well of your home doesn’t have proper drainage or the drain is clogged or blocked because of debris, or the well is not accurately installed, water accumulates in the well. Even if your window well is defect-free, the pooled water in the well will start leaking into your basement.

Hydrostatic Pressure: After being fully saturated by heavy rain or melting snow, when the soil can no longer absorb water, the water table beneath the ground rises. As a consequence hydrostatic pressure (water pressure) forms, pushing the water through your basement walls and floor.

Lateral Pressure: After heavy rain, absorbing a lot of water, the soil starts to expand and creates lateral pressure (pressure from sideway) against the foundation. It causes cracks in the basement walls and water easily leaks through.

Faulty Plumbing: If any pipe is leaky inside your home, it can result in the pipe to burst and ultimately flood your basement.

Inadequate Sump Pump: But due to poor maintenance, the sump pump fails to divert the water away, resulting in water leaking into the basement.

Basement Repair by Pioneer Basement in MA & RI

Upon being contacted, we will send someone straight out to evaluate the situation and devise a solution that will ensure your home’s viability for years to come. There are a number of forms wet basement repair services by Pioneer Basement in Massachusetts & Rhode Island might take including:

Extending the downspouts – Often times water in the basement can be traced directly to runoff from the roof being deposited to close to the foundation.

Filling gaps – Sometimes plumbing pipes that penetrate the basement walls develop gaps around them. We’ll identify and plug any such gaps or cracks.

Installing a French drain – A French drain is a trench that intercepts groundwater before it reaches the house and diverts it harmlessly away.

Waterproofing the walls – The best solution may be to waterproof the basement walls. This can be done either on the exterior or interior depending on the nature of the leaks.

Installing a sump pump – Sometimes water in the basement doesn’t come through the walls, it wells up from beneath the house. In this case, we’ll install a sump pump that will prevent your basement from flooding during heavy rain or snowmelt events.
