Signs That Waterproofing is Needed
If you’re not quite sure if your basement or foundation has ever been waterproofed, then most likely it has not. There are some things you can specifically look for to determine if you have foundation issues or waterproofing needs that should be addressed.
This is a pretty common issue if your basement is unfinished or if you have an unfinished crawlspace. Whether the space is ever used or not, you want to take care of your foundation walls to avoid bigger issues in the future.
Here are some signs that you can watch for to determine if waterproofing might be necessary for your basement.
- You notice droplets build up or crystalline deposits that form on concrete
- You notice new cracks or water in the cracks of your foundation.
- There is regularly standing water on your basement floor or perhaps a dampness
- Moisture dripping from windows or walls or leaks when it is raining
- You notice musty odors and smells or excessive humidity
- Repetitive issues with sump pumps
Any one of these things can be a sign that your basement is in need of waterproofing.
FPS will provide you with an estimate to repair damages to your foundation as well as a complete waterproofing plan to get your basement protected. There’s no reason to let water rule your basement. You have options. Another option might be to get the waterproofing completed now and schedule the repair work for a later date if needed.

A sump pump that is operating correctly is one of the most ideal solutions for a basement. The catch is that it needs to be appropriately sized and maintained so that it works as intended. Nearly every basement should have a sump pump and this little tool can do a lot to help prevent further harm to your basement.
A sump pump can provide protection even when your power is out.
Small cracks in the foundation or in the crawl space can lead to water intrusion. If you notice musty odors or water in places it shouldn’t be, call FSP for a free no obligation waterproofing analysis.
A sump pump is not the only solution. There are other systems that can be put into place for drainage purposes that will help to reduce and remove unwanted water.
