Basement Waterproofing in Chattanooga, TN

Rainy winters and springs make it difficult to keep your home’s basement dry. While leaking water is common in basements located in Chattanooga, TN, the problem must be addressed sooner rather than later. What might start out as a slight trickle can result in standing or flooding water, mold, high humidity, compromised structural supports, and other damage. 

Installing DIY solutions such as paints and sealants that claim to be waterproof is not the answer for a permanently dry basement. Along with long-lasting repairs that restore your basement’s health, safety, and appearance, you will benefit from friendly, award-winning customer service provided by our experienced team at AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists. Homeowners in Chattanooga and throughout southeast Tennessee have trusted us for more than 20 years, and we are ready to help you too.

Basement Problem Signs in Chattanooga

There are many telltale signs of damage you will notice in your Chattanooga basement if it is in trouble. Standing water, plumbing floods, flooded stairs, efflorescence (a white, chalky substance on concrete walls and floors), and other water damage are the most obvious. Others that can be difficult to detect or co-occur with other problems like foundation issues include floor cracks, elevated humidity, musty odors, mold and mildew growth, condensation, and increased pest activity. The best way to combat these issues and know exactly what you are up against is to have your basement professionally inspected by an AFS expert. 

What are the Causes of Basement Damage in Chattanooga?

There are many ways water can get into your basement and other damage can result. Leaking or burst plumbing pipes, or faulty appliances like malfunctioning sump pumps are internal sources that could be to blame. However, most basement damage is caused by external forces like Chattanooga’s wet weather and silt loam soil. Silt loam typically drains well, but the area’s 51 inches of annual rainfall can inundate it and cause it to erode and wash away or expand and lead to hydrostatic pressure. Additionally, if your home does not have proper foundation drainage or gutters and downspouts are clogged, your home will not be equipped to deal with excess water and runoff.

Basement Waterproofing Solutions in Chattanooga

While installing repairs on your own is fine for some projects, it is best to leave basement waterproofing to your trusted local experts. At AFS, we install only the best waterproofing solutions that are tailored to fit exactly what your Chattanooga basement needs. These fully customizable, long-lasting products your AFS inspector will suggest include wall vapor barriers to prevent moisture intrusion, interior drainage to catch leaking water, sump pumps to remove the water, and a dehumidifier to control moisture and humidity. All these options were made to fit together as a comprehensive basement waterproofing system, and each is protected by a nationally backed, long-term, transferrable warranty.
