You deserve a home with a foundation that defends itself against water intrusion.
At Value Dry, we know that homeowners like you want to be in control of the safety and value of their home.
In order to do that, you need a way to shield your foundation from the damaging effects of water. The problem is, moisture is a big problem for houses in the Alexandria, and most foundations in our region aren’t built [prepared] to manage it, which makes you vulnerable. We believe you deserve the benefits of a home that defends itself from water intrusion.
Value Dry knows what a relentless enemy water intrusion is to the home, and we built a massive fleet of experts and equipment to fight it. We bring more than 100 years of combined basement waterproofing experience in Maryland and Virginia to the defense of your home. We’ve inspected more than 100,000 homes, and as members of the Basement Health Association, we provide your home with a fully licensed and insured service that’s backed by a Lifetime Transferable Warranty.
A number of factors combine to cause a web basement or basement flooding, including:
- Heavy rain or snow melt
- High water table
- Saturated ground
- Hydrostatic pressure
- Poor grading around the home
- Clogged downspouts
- And more
If your home is even more than a few years old, chances are, it was not built with a waterproof basement in mind. And even if it has some basement waterproofing features, they may not be up to today’s standards. We have a lot of customers who get water in their basement, even though someone supposedly “already waterproofed it.”
When the ground is completely saturated, the water has to go somewhere. Water will take the path of least resistance, and in many cases that means the water soaks into your concrete foundation floor and walls. This can cause structural damage if it is not dealt with.
There are a number of signs that you may benefit from basement waterproofing. Some are more obvious than others. If you have an unfinished basement, you can clearly see some issues. If you have a finished basement, some problems may be hidden.
Here are some of the signs to look and smell for:
- A damp, musty smell
- Mold growth
- Damp spots on the concrete or carpet
- Standing water in basement
- Water seepage near the foundation walls
- Basement flooding
- Cracks in the concrete floor
- Cracks in the foundation walls
- A white or grey chalky substance on the walls
And if your neighbors on either side of you have wet basement issues, chances are you will too. At least eventually.
One of the biggest problems homeowners in the Mid-Atlantic face is foundation seepage, and most homes in our region aren’t prepared to manage it. We are committed to restoring and maintaining the value and safety of your home.
