A lot of our customers ask us why a basement floods in the first place. The quick answer is that some homes do not have proper drainage. They may have a water table that is higher than normal or are located in a low area. This means that when the rainy season comes, water that is not drained properly will start to seep through the joints between the foundation wall and the floor. Which eventually leads to floods. However, there is no need to worry because there is a way to prevent this. You can hire us! Our company offers top quality foundation waterproofing so that your home is always safe and dry.
