Water damage can be a stressful scenario for many homeowners. Heavy rain can cause soil to shift and allow water to seep through into your basement or crawlspace. This can lead to expensive repairs. Waterproofing your foundation can help you lower your risk and keep you safe. Here are three surefire signs to look for to tell if your foundation needs waterproofing.

Basement Mold

If you notice puddles of water or condensation on the windows in your basement, your foundation is revealing the immediate need for waterproofing. This moisture can lead to all kinds of structural and non-structural damage. Damp conditions can lead to the development of musty odors and mold. If not addressed immediately, mold and mildew can put your health at risk and may lead to irreparable damage.

Foundation Cracks

Cracks are a surefire sign your foundation is failing to work properly. Small fissures can be common within the first two years of construction. Cracks that run vertically can also be common with drywall. Larger horizontal gaps and cracks are a sign you may need waterproofing to protect your home. Insect infestations and water can weaken these cracks further, leading to expensive repairs.

Warping Foundation Walls

Expensive damage can occur to foundation walls from wet soil due to poor drainage, plumbing leaks or faulty gutters. Hydrostatic pressure can lead to curving or warping in foundation walls. You may also notice dry rot on doors and other wooden structures. Keep the moisture at bay from causing more damage with waterproofing services from an experienced professional.

Wet soil can also cause settling with the foundation, creating structural instability and potential plumbing leaks. You may notice uneven flooring and gaps around windows and doors. A foundation repair specialist can inspect your home to help you determine what repairs need to be made before extensive damage occurs.

We are pleased with the job at Granite Falls, NC. 5 star! The basement is dry and condensation is gone, bright white covering. The dehumidifier is hard at work, again thank you. The gutters are redirecting the rain waters. God bless you.

We hired Parks’ Waterproofing to address a moisture issue in the basement of our log home in Buck Mountain. We were convinced during our initial meeting with Jody to go with his company based on the Waterproofing Lifetime Guarantee offered and other services his company provides such as hardscaping & landscaping. During the course of our waterproofing project and as we began to experience and appreciate the high quality of workmanship, we solicited Jody for ideas to expand the scope of the work into hardscaping and landscaping. As our confidence in Jody grew, we allowed him to incorporate his vision for our property that included a patio, a fire ring, retaining walls and walkways. His attention to planning and detail were impeccable. His cost-saving ideas were also much appreciated. Just as important to us was the professionalism of his field staff; they were extremely courteous and respectful of our property. The end result is spectacular; the quality of materials used and the fit and finish not only met but exceeded our expectations. We are very pleased with and proud of our new hardscape and landscape features, and of course the waterproofing system is working; keeping our basement dry and devoid of humidity. We recommend Parks’ Waterproofing to anyone.

I would highly recommend Parks' Waterproofing for any work I had for them to do. Jody was good about coming to my home and looking at what was going on with water getting into my basement. Come to find out that had a bad down spout. Jody was good enough to show me this and the problem was an easy fix. Jody made a 40 mile trip and would not let me pay him. Thank you Jody.

We were having water in our basement every time it rained hard. We feared the worst, and called Parks’ Waterproofing for an estimate. After inspecting our basement, Jody told us that the issue was a $10 pipe that we could replace ourselves. He could have tried to sell us an expensive system that we didn’t need but he was honest. We are grateful for this honest business.

As a real estate agent in the Triad, I can tell you that many major issues found in homes originate from improper water management. The first time I met with the Parks' Waterproofing, I could tell that they were the real deal. This team really knows their stuff! Parks' Waterproofing installed their patented, lifetime warranty, free-flowing waterproofing system around the entire perimeter of a family member's house to prevent water under the house, which was causing a huge mold problem. I have also used Parks' Waterproofing to install below grade drainage for my gutter system, plus, adding a catch basin under my deck, and grading. They did an amazing job! 5/5, highly recommended to anyone!

If you are having water problems in your basement or house...CALL PARKS WATERPROOFING! Jody listens, takes detailed notes, then lays out a plan of attack to eliminate the issue. We made the mistake of hiring a General Contractor first because they had the time to come out sooner than Parks. Big mistake that cost my parents a great deal of money. Believe me, wait for Parks. It is worth the wait. Even though Parks was busy, he updated us weekly with a spreadsheet showing us exactly where we were on his list. We never had to call him. After he fixed our problem, which required a great deal of digging and grading, his team came out and landscaped those areas and planted grass seed. My parent's yard has never looked this good. My only complaint is that Jody will not tell me what his seed blend is or sell it to me. JODY, what is your secret??? I highly recommend Parks Waterproofing and on a personal note, Jody is a good man. He actually cares about his customer. Regards, Greg

Wow! These guys are AMAZING! We had a huge problem in our crawl space. They assessed the problem, made recommendations, and gave us the estimate. They totally explained everything so we had an understanding of what would happen. They were here for over a week, did extensive work inside and out of the crawl space, including installing a sump pump with WiFi alarm, and rerouted some exterior drain pipes. They cleaned up after themselves too! Their customer service is absolutely incredible, before/during/and after! I give them a 5 star rating, but in reality, they are a PERFECT 10!!!

Dave W.

Very professional firm from beginning to end. Responded in a timely manner in the beginning answering questions and providing a quote. Once we signed the contract they promptly scheduled the work. The did quality work on time and in budget (didn’t come back asking for more money). This particular project was challenging due to terrain and confined spaces but they made the job look easy. They also cleaned up very good at the end. Excellent service!
