Basement waterproofing and drainage is especially needed in areas where groundwater builds up in the soil and raises the water table. The build up of water in the soil causes hydrostatic pressure to be exerted underneath the basement floor and against basement walls. This hydrostatic pressure forces the water to enter the basement through cracks in the floors or walls or through wall joints. Water entering a basement can cause structural damage to your home and can promote the growth of mold and mildew.
Don't let a wet basement ruin your possessions or cause health issues for you and your family. Contact the experts at PFS Basement & Foundation Repair. We have the solution for your basement waterproofing needs.

PFS Basement & Foundation Repair has the most effective interior waterproofing solutions made by Earth Contact Products (ECP) for your Marion, IN home. This interior waterproofing includes:
The ECP 4" drain pipe is installed inside the perimeter of the footing and connects to a sump pump system. The sump pump then drains the water away from the foundation.
The ECP sump pump basin is molded from high strength, impact-resistant polyethylene to provide years of service. The bell shape of these ECP sump basin makes the sump pump more efficient and increases the life of the drainage system. When groundwater fills the pit to a certain level, a switch activates the sump pump. The sump pump dispels the water outside and the sump pit starts collecting water again.
The ECP vapor barrier is designed to stop water from moving into living spaces and stops ground moisture from rotting wood in crawl spaces. Vapor barriers reduce energy costs and seal out rodents and insects.
