The slope of your landscape can affect how and where water drains away. For many homeowners, a landscape that slopes toward the basement is sometimes a practical or desirable feature. This should not become an issue unless the contractors who were charged with ensuring adequate drainage didn’t do a thorough job, or something has changed that is preventing water from draining away effectively.

Impediments to Water Drainage

Sometimes impediments to water drainage are naturally occurring, such as rock or soil type. While these impediments may be the result of shifting earth under your landscape, it is more often the case that the site was not properly inspected before construction began. Other impediments may include structures that a homeowner has installed to enhance the outdoor living experience, such as decking or a swimming pool.

If any impediment to water drainage exists, the water will find the path of least resistance. The unfortunate reality for many homeowners is that path leads directly to a basement at the bottom of a sloping landscape. If you do not have an effective water barrier to protect your basement walls and foundations, the result is water infiltration that can cause mold, changes in humidity, damage to structures and property.

Effective Basement Waterproofing

If water drainage is an issue on your property, fixing the problem should be your first priority. However, there is always a risk to basement walls and foundations if a permanent solution is not in place. Effective waterproofing for basement structures is the most sensible approach. An internal waterproofing membrane is not adequate protection and may not even meet required building standards.

At Parks’ Waterproofing, we can install a system that permanently protects your basement walls and foundations. Our patented Parks’ Free-Flowing Waterproofing System also comes with a lifetime guarantee. Call today to learn more about our effective waterproofing solutions.

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.
