basement foundation wall after repair by Parks' Masonry LLC

If you use your basement for storage or don’t use it at all, it is still important to periodically inspect the space. The basement is an important structural feature in the home. Water intrusion or structural damage that is left undetected can become a serious issue. Potential repair costs will escalate if these problems are not addressed.

Water Intrusion

There is a misconception that an internal waterproofing membrane will prevent water intrusion. However, this type of system will not prevent water from seeping through basement walls. The root cause of the issue is external, so having an internal membrane is like shutting the barn door after the horse has bolted.

An effective external waterproofing system is a superior solution to preventing water intrusion in basement walls and foundations. The system essentially reroutes standing or pooling water away from the structures on your property. Water is not sentient and will simply follow the easiest path. Obstructions in soil or the slope of the land can lead water directly to your basement walls.

Structural Damage

The other issue to look out for is structural damage. This can occur due to water intrusion, poor construction, soil erosion or shifting and a host of other reasons that are specific to the site and property. Identifying the cause of structural issues in the basement is the first step.

The cost of repairs will depend on the extent of damage and the amount of work needed. Catching any structural issues early could save you a significant amount of money. It is also worth considering potential savings on your energy bill from improved insulation.

If you have identified water intrusion or damage in your basement, call Parks’ Waterproofing today. We can provide waterproofing and repair services to save you the pain of major costs further down the road.

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!!!

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!

I would like to recommend Parks’ Waterproofing Company. I have been having water issues for some time now and called Jody out to take a look at the problem. During his assessment he was able to determine that a much cheaper solution was my best option. I appreciate Jody’s honesty and integrity by not taking advantage of the situation and telling me the more expensive option was the only way to fix the problem. His honesty saved me literally thousands of dollars.

We could not be happier with our job. Please relate to all who worked at our home how much we appreciate their efforts in completing our job before the snow arrived. We have never had a group of workers who worked with such enthusiasm and displayed a sense of pride in their work. Those traits are hard to find in today’s workplace. Thanks again. Tom and Rosalee Patton

Communication was excellent - prompt and courteous. Workers were exceptionally well trained. Once the job was started they showed up every day and worked until the job was completed.

Jody – all the rain we’ve had lately really put your waterproofing system to the test – and you passed with an A+…..A dry basement!!! We are amazed at the difference it’s made in my Mom’s house. A special THANK YOU to you and your entire team for everything. You’re providing a great service here and I’m sure that you will have much success.
