Foundation Problems in Allentown

If you’ve got water in your Allentown basement, you’ll readily see wet walls, wet floors, flooding, and other leaks. But there are other problem signs you should also watch out for that indicate trouble in your basement. It’s important to regularly check for wall and floor cracks, condensation, mold, efflorescence, musty odors, leaking windows, plumbing floods, and other water damage. None of these issues will get better over time, but will only become more severe and expensive to fix. Vigilance is key, and so is contacting the expert Baker’s Waterproofing team as soon as you notice them.

Causes of Foundation Damage in Allentown

Plumbing and appliances are usually stored in basements, so damaging water could come from leaking pipes or a faulty sump pump. However, there are other common causes behind your basement problems, namely the soil and weather conditions. The silty loam soil prevalent throughout Allentown may not always drain water efficiently. In eastern Pennsylvania, Allentown is situated on the Lehigh River in the Lehigh Valley between Blue Mountain and South Mountain, and receives an average of 47 inches of rain and 29 inches of snow in a year. That’s a lot of precipitation for the soil to contend with, and it can easily erode or become so saturated with water that the clay bowl effect and hydrostatic pressure form and lead to cracking walls and leaking basements

Foundation Repair Solutions in Allentown

Installing DIY repairs in your basement like supposed “waterproof” paints and sealants is not the answer if you never want to deal with a wet basement again. They are temporary, cosmetic bandages that do not tackle the root of your Allentown basement’s problems. Our team at Baker’s Waterproofing will help you permanently protect your basement with award-winning solutions including interior drainage, sump pumps, dehumidifiers, wall vapor barriers, and anti-freeze exterior sump pump discharge line attachments. Everything we install is customized to your basement, designed to fit together as a comprehensive waterproofing system, made in the United States, and fully warrantied.
