How Can My Wet Basement Be Repaired?
If you have noticed damage or mold growth in your basement, it's important to get it repaired relatively quickly. At Grip-Tite, we have a number of solutions that work for a variety of basements, no matter the damage level. If you're in need of interior drainage options we have an interior drain tile system, sump pumps, vapor barriers, and crack repair materials to take the moisture out and keep it out for years to come.
If you need a more in-depth drainage system that includes exterior methods, we have a number of options including downspout installation, landscape drains, and more. This will gather the water and lead it away from the home, keeping the perimeter dry during the toughest storms.
Why Should I Repair My Wet Basement?
Besides protecting many of your valuables against water damage, our wet basement systems are important because they also protect your family against the hazards of mold or rotting materials. Mold spores are never good to breathe in and rotting support beams or corroded electrical panels could spell disaster for the rest of your home above the basement. It's important to regularly check on your basement to make sure it is stable and clean. When you install one of our products, you can be sure that all of these problems will disappear.
