How do I know if I need to get my basement waterproofed? 

If there is any sign of water damage in your basement, it’s time to call a professional.

Please call if you experience the following:

What happens if I don’t fix water problems in my basement? 

Not only can moisture in your basement cause long-term structural damage to your home, but it can also cause rust, peeling paint, stains, attract pests and insects, and more.

And experts agree that the financial loss incurred due to such problems can be severe. Calculated at between 15% to 25% of the value of the home. (ex. $100,000 home x -25% = $25,000 loss on value of the home).

Additionally, a wet, humid basement can quickly become a breeding ground for mold and mildew, which can be extremely hazardous to the health of your family.

Do you warranty or guarantee your work? 

To ensure the quality of our work, EveryDry offers a warranty for each of its four basement waterproofing options. Warranty details vary depending on the service, so please contact us for details.

I don’t see any leaks or cracks, but my basement is very humid and has a musty odor. Does this mean I need to waterproof my basement? 

Basements are naturally humid due to the moist soil that surrounds them. Even if you don’t see standing water or leaks, high levels of moisture can cause serious damage to your basement, and to your air quality. To reduce indoor humidity, EverDry offers the “E-Z Breathe Ventilation System” which helps ventilate and purify the air.

Can I waterproof my basement myself? 

The professional technicians at EverDry can quickly and safely make repairs to your home and have access to professional grade materials that the average homeowner would not be able to acquire. However, if you’re handy and just looking to do some simple crack repairs, see our guide for “Do It Yourself-ers." For more advanced fixes, such as structural repairs, we always recommend you hire a professional.

Will waterproofing paint fix a leak? 

No! Waterproofing paint is designed to seal walls and prevent moisture from seeping through. If there is a pre-existing leak, paint will do nothing to fix the problem. Contact EverDry for foundation crack injections to fix your leak once and for all.

I plan to sell my home. Should I get my basement waterproofed before I sell it? 

Call EverDry today for a free inspection to see if you need your basement waterproofed. If there are any signs of damage, we highly recommend you get any problems fixed before you put the house on the market. Waterproofing will increase the value of your home and save you trouble when a buyer starts to ask the tough questions.
