Whether your basement has a fully finished game room and play space or simply serves as a storage area, it’s important to keep the lowest level of your home clean, dry and safe. Basement waterproofing keeps water from coming in through leaky windows, wall or floor cracks, over the top of the foundation, or through the cove joint, where the walls meet the floor.

BDB Waterproofing offers free inspections to determine where water is building up under your home, and how it’s getting in. Once we locate the source of the problem, we can design a solution.

Interior Basement Waterproofing

Basement waterproofing by BDB Waterproofing in OmahaWaterproofing from inside your home can include installing perimeter drains and a sump pump. We can also repair leaking plumbing lines. These drains collect water and send it to a sump pump. Once the water inside the sump pit reaches a certain level, it is sent out and away from the home.

Exterior waterproofing

Waterproofing outside of the basement starts with repairing exterior foundation cracks. We dig around the damaged wall and apply an exterior waterproofing membrane that prevents water from seeping in through the cracks. Exterior waterproofing also involves identifying poor yard grading or drainage issues which may involve water pooling up in certain spots on your lawn. If we see these issues, we’ll refer you to partners who can help you resolve them.

Sump pumps

They collect water from drainage systems and expel this moisture out and away from the home to a safe distance away, where it won’t be able to seep back into the soil and into the home again. BDB Waterproofing can install a sump pump and we also offer sump pump battery backup systems which will be activated in case the primary pump fails, or if the sump loses electricity during a storm.

Dehumidifiers

BDB Waterproofing recommends installing a high-capacity dehumidifier to keep your basement dry, odor-free and mold-free. We install Santa Fe dehumidifiers. These units perform exceptionally well in basements and crawl spaces. They can be set up to drain directly into a floor drain or sink, so you don’t have to empty a water pan. They also filter the air to remove harmful particles.

“The owner of the company was the person who came out. I had a bunch of questions. He spent 45 minutes with me, on a free estimate, and explained everything I needed to do. In the end, I didn’t need to hire BDB. Everything that was required I was able to do myself. The owner even gave me tips on how to successfully complete the project on my own. This type of honesty is rare. He could have easily sold me a few thousand dollars of work. Needless to say I will forever trust this company. If you need work done, or an assessment, I cannot recommend them strongly enough!!!” – Wayne Kester on Google
