Choosing a Waterproofing Company for Your Washington DC Basement

Wet basements are not fun! Flooded basements are a homeowner’s nightmare. If you are suffering from constant worry about the health and safety of your basement, it’s time for a change. If you’ve tried DIY efforts to fix pooling water, cracks in your foundation, leaky basement windows, or high humidity, it’s time to find an experienced, professional waterproofer you can trust. A wet basement wastes valuable living space, damages building materials and stored possessions, pollutes the indoor air, risks the health of those living in the home, and puts your investment in your home at risk. That adds up to considerable risk.

Look for expertise, training, and experience.

When you choose a basement contractor in the Basement Systems network, you get a local company trained in and committed to the best waterproofing practices. Each contractor is an expert in the diagnosis of sub-grade moisture problems as well as the design and installation of proper drainage, moisture and humidity control, and basement materials. Say good-bye to your wet basement with the best basement waterproofing in your neighborhood!

Why Do Basements in Washington DC Get Wet?

Flooded basement: Once your basement gets flooded, you want to understand why, in addition to getting it fixed. Severe basement flooding in Washington DC can be caused by heavy spring rains, summer thunderstorms, and flash floods.

Other reasons for wet basements: There are many possible sources for pooling water, damp basement walls or flooring, and high humidity. These include: rusty basement windows, poor grading around the foundation, leaks through cracks in the foundation, saturated soils, simple plumbing failures, and poorly functioning drainage or sump pump systems. A basement already musty and damp is ill-prepared for the next bad rainstorm! Basement waterproofing can address the underlying issues, prevent future water damage and improve the indoor air quality.

    Customer Testimonial

              Had Bruce out to do an estimate. He gave us an honest assessment of the situation that no work was necessary. This was after a competitor used scare tactics to try to sell an 18,000$ solution. Highly recommend getting a second opinion (or first!) from NV before deciding on who will do your work. Very courteous and friendly as well.

    Daniel P. of Warrenton, VA

    Customer Testimonial

              A minor delay on the start day proved not to be a problem as the NV Waterproofing crew worked until 8:00 to ensure that the project stayed on schedule. Dust and debris from jack-hammering was far less than anticipated. In short, it was a satisfying experience to have a contractor that put so much attention into customer satisfaction. I cannot find fault worth mentioning without sounding picky from the start to final clean-up of the work site.

    Customer Testimonial

              Your crew worked hard all day, only taking a short time for a quick lunch. The men were neat, completely covering all areas that they used to remove concrete, dirt and debris. They were on task the entire time. We were very impressed. We have had a lot of work completed in our home over the last 38 years, and I am pleased to say that your employees are the most conscientious we have ever worked with.

    Can't say enough on how professional this crew was both Jose and Eduardo Chavez. I was worried because I recently had my basement remodeled but they very neatly covered everything up. They tested the installed system. They explained how the system functions before they left.

    Good ratings, fair pricing and good engagement and responsiveness from Jaime. In addition Sean was very informative and completed set up. My only reservation was the number of different individuals I had to interact with in order to get my project done. Admin/foreman/salesman and follow up install was a lot of confusion and conversations about not knowing what the other person said.
