Basement Doctor Tip:As temperatures during this winter season become increasingly colder, you need to be equipped! Frozen Discharge Lines can block pumping action by the sump pump and force water back into your basement. It is wise as a homeowner to get a cover for your discharge line to keep debris, and small animals out of it. Call today to schedule a free consultation and learn more about Freeze Relief!

Is your Sump Pump working Properly?
Basement Doctor Fact: According to the Insurance Info Institute, 22% of all claims included sump pumps or frozen pipes. The average claim amount was $5,531. The Sump pump can be described as the engine that keeps liquid in your sump flowing out the right way. It is EXTREMELY important to have a fully functional Sump Pump in a home that has a basement in it.When the pump the stops working properly then that means it’s not flushing out the liquid and waste. When the liquid and waste aren’t flushed out, that simply means one thing…flooding. Sump Pumps are known to have a life span of 9-10 years before a full replacement is needed. Please give us a call for a free consultation today!

Basement Doctor Tip:
It is very important to maintain the gutters and grading around your home! 25% of problems discovered during inspection, are a result of improper exterior maintenance.
When there’s a back and forth of rain and cold temperatures it can affect the grading and soil around your home. If the soil stays saturated, these are some other things that can happen:
• During a freeze, saturated soil can expand exerting additional pressure around your walls.
• This can cause a cycle of wall cracking and begin to weaken the foundation.
• These cracks can be entry points for water to find its way into your home.
We offer products to both reinforce the wall strength and correct wall movement!
It is also VERY important to clean leaves out of your gutters. When your gutter is clogged with leaves water can’t flow properly. This will result in water leaking into your home and maybe even cause mold growth. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a FREE consultation give us a call!

If leaving foundation issues unresolved when trying to sell a home, the loan institution may hold out until the issue is fixed. If this is a concern, please give us a call to schedule a free consultation.

Unhealthy Crawl Space? Fact: An unhealthy crawl space can be caused by groundwater seepage due to improper exterior maintenance and high relative humidity! This opens the door to mold, allergies, upper respiratory infections, bugs, rodent infestation and high utility bills! As much as 50% of the air you breathe upstairs comes from the basement or crawlspace! If your crawl space needs a check up, give us a call to explore your options!
