Wet basements are a constant source of worry for homeowners. And a flooded basement is a downright nightmare. Have you experienced pooling water on the basement floor or cracks in your foundation that appear to let water in? Even less demanding symptoms like high humidity and rusty basement windows require attention to avoid future problems. Given the investment in your home, it’s worth consulting with a professional basement waterproofer. After all, a wet basement wastes valuable living space, damages building materials and stored possessions, pollutes the indoor air, and risks the health of those living in the home.

Each contractor listed here 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.

Blame it on the weather: While the state of New York spans different geographical regions, one thing is clear: the rainy season begins in spring, when in many areas, snow is also melting, the ground is saturated with water, and streams and rivers are at their highest levels. When the conditions are right, all it takes is one intense rainstorm to create an opportunity for basement leaks and flooding. In addition, the Atlantic Hurricane season which runs from the end of May through September, can deliver an abundance of rainwater during storm surges, threatening basements across Long Island, metropolitan New York, the Hudson Valley, and other parts of the state.
Blame it on basement construction: Basements are not constructed to stay dry all the time. They serve as a buffer layer between the moist earth and the living space in upper floors of a home or building. Constructed of poured concrete, cinder blocks, or stone, in older homes, basements are situated completely or partially in the ground. This makes them subject to hydrostatic pressure, which refers to the force that moisture in the soil exerts against the walls of a basement over time. The result is water seepage and cracks in the foundation. The joint where the floor meets the wall is an especially vulnerable point in basement construction.
You don’t have to experience a major flood event to worry about your basement. Whether your home is in Syracuse, Albany, Rochester, Binghamton, the Hudson Valley, or the Greater New York City, your basement is susceptible to water intrusion. A short heavy rainfall when the sump pump is overwhelmed or stops working can damage a basement in a few short hours. Cracks in the foundation, rusty windows, issues with the original construction, a clogged sump pump, or a deteriorating exterior drainage system can put the integrity of your basement at risk.

Comment: In major rainstorms a reasonably small amount of water leaks into my finished basement along the north side of my house. There is a sunken patio above it that has recently been replaced. I already have a sump pimp in the basement for gray water removal (there is a small bath with a shower and toilet).

Project Location: Astoria, NY 11105
Comment: Around the first week of June, after heavy rain, I noticed a section of the basement floor was wet with what seemed as water entering from below the floor. I didn't see any indications of water entering via the walls as they were not wet. I tried on my one to determine the source of the issue but was unable to. What makes it even harder is that since June 8, I've also seen this area wet even though it has not rained, now wondering if the issue is beyond my property and water is finding a way in when others are running water in adjacent properties. I need help to identify the cause and correct it. Thank you.
