A basement leak can be a costly and potentially dangerous problem for any property in central Georgia. There are few things more destructive to a home than the presence of water, and a basement leak can lead to flood damage in the blink of an eye. Additionally, a damp basement is fertile ground for mold growth – which can be a significant health risk for the occupants. When you add it all up, it becomes clear that a basement leak is not something to be taken lightly, even if it seems like just a small problem.

In some instances, a foundation leak can be directly traced to a problem with the home’s foundation. The central portion of Georgia has soil which is extremely soft and saturated with water. After a heavy rainfall, water doesn’t absorb quickly which puts additional pressure on the foundations of homes– making a basement leak all the more likely. Engineered Solutions of Georgia offers two ways to handle this water infiltration. The first option is with interior basement waterproofing. With this service, our engineers install a cement-sealed trench in the basement that will collect water and redirect water out of the home by way of a drainage system and pump. The second choice is exterior waterproofing. This repair requires the excavation of the foundation and the installation or repair of the home’s foundation drain. This process is more complicated than interior waterproofing but is the longest lasting, and most effective choice for preventing a basement leak and flooding.
