Winnetka Foundation Repair and Basement Waterproofing – 60093

Basement Waterproofing Winnetka

Looking for a place to take your dog this summer? Winnetka, IL has a not-so-well known Dog Beach on North Sheridan Road. You can take your best friend here for a swim on the beach (dogs only, no humans allowed) in the fenced in area. They even provide a hose to wash off all the sand they will inevitability get ALL over themselves.

There is a time and place for water. At the Dog Park on a hot summer day is one of them. In your basement on a cold rainy day is not. Unfortunately, many homes in the Winnetka, IL area tend to have Basement Seepage problems. Whether the problem is foundation cracks, sump pump failures, or window well seepage, these need to be taken care of by a professional.

Basement Waterproofing

Water seepage can occur in any basement for a lot of different reasons from a variety of sources. Hydrostatic pressure from soil surrounding your home that is saturated or oversaturated with water is typically the cause of basement leakage. Gravity forces the water through holes, gaps and fissures in your foundation, potentially flooding your basement and costing you thousands of dollars in damage. The pressure on your foundation is even greater when it is cold out, because the ground water freezes and expands.

Sump pumps are also a common cause of basement flooding. When sump pumps fail, all the ground water that flows into your sump pump, and normally gets pumped out, overflows and fills your basement. This can cause a lot of water damage, which is why it is important to replace your sump pump every 5 years or at least have it checked by an expert even more frequently. Remember, the time they are most likely to fail is during a storm. And the way you most likely find out is when it is too late! Be sure to have your basement inspected to avoid Foundation Crack issues and Sump Pump failures. We offer FREE estimates and would be happy to come take a look.

Poorly constructed window wells could also be the cause of your basement seepage. When window wells get clogged, the water inside doesn’t drain out properly, essentially turning it into an actual well and pushing water into your home through the window.
