Melting snow. One foot of snow produces gallons of water. Without proper waterproofing, all that water can end up in your basement!
With spring comes warmer weather, but this can spell disaster for your basement or crawl space. Warm temperatures and rain will cause all that snow around your foundation to melt. Runoff from melting snow and ice dams can seep into your house. Without the proper protection, your basement can flood before you realize there’s a problem. American Waterworks installs patented sump pumps and drainage systems to help protect your home year round.

A few feet of snow piled against your foundation can result in a flooded basement if not dealt with. Luckily there are steps you can take to make sure the melting snow doesn’t end up in your basement. If you are looking for effective waterproofing and flood protection, our certified waterproofing professionals can inspect your basement or crawl space and recommend the best solution for your home!
The first way to protect your basement is to keep melting snow away from your foundation walls. Make sure to pile the snow in a way that will allow the melting snow to drain away from the house.
If your gutters are clogged with debris, runoff from rainwater and melting ice and snow will dump right next to your foundation. Make sure your gutters and downspouts are draining away from the foundation walls. Ask about our RainChute® downspout extensions to help direct water away from your foundation.
Most homeowners don’t realize they have a problem with their sump pump until their basement is flooded. If your home doesn't have a sump pump or it’s time for a replacement, we install powerful sump pumps for the basement and crawl space. Along with an effective sump pump, a basement drainage system should be installed to protect your basement from flooding. Our anti-clog drainage systems will collect water from leaking wall cracks, pipe penetrations, basement windows & other openings and direct it to your sump pump and out of your home.
A crack in your basement walls is a sign of hydrostatic pressure, or water pushing against your foundation. The pressure creates wall cracks and the water can eventually find its way into your basement. A crack in your basement floor can be a sign of a structural problem and can also allow water to seep into your basement. We can seal your leaking wall cracks using the patented FlexiSpan® Crack Repair System. FlexiSpan® provides a durable, flexible seal that remains bonded even as your concrete walls expand and shrink.
A wet basement creates more than just a headache. Water in the basement can cause mold, wood rot, and serious structural damage. If you have a finished basement, water can ruin drywall, flooring, and your personal belongings. If you suspect that you have a waterproofing problem, have your basement or crawl space inspected by one of our experts!
