Is your foundation leaking? Maybe you’ve noticed wet spots or rust residue on your foundation walls and have wondered how to go about repairing foundation leaks.

Small Cracks In Your Foundation Can Lead to Major Damage

While small cracks and leaks may not seem like a big deal, they can lead to major damage if they’re not repaired in a timely manor. Not only is water bad for your foundation, it can be harmful to your health as well. Small cracks allow for moisture to seep through. Where moisture is present, insects and mold are soon to follow.

Termites Infestations

Whether you have a home with a full basement, or a crawlspace, it’s important to keep that space dry. Insects like termites are drawn to dark, moist areas. If you have a damp basement or crawlspace, be on the lookout for common signs of termite infestation:

  • Blisters in Wood Flooring
  • Hollowed Wood
  • Broken Insect Wings
  • Drywood Termite Droppings

Structural & Health Damage

Mold and mildew also flourish in damp spaces. If leaks are left unrepaired, mold and mildew can grow and cause damage to walls, support beams, floors, and your health and well-being. Some warning signs of mold and mildew include:

  • Musty Smell
  • Visible Mold Growth
  • Previous Floods
