A basement flood can lead to extensive damage to finishing materials and stored items.

Today's small leak can lead to serious flooding in the future -- don't wait to fix your wet basement!

When your home was built, the contractors designing it never meant for the basement to be a damp, musty, flooding space. But as time and the forces of nature continue to bear down on your foundation, it's bound to leak sooner or later.

Basement flooding is a problem that can be solved quickly (and effectively), provided that you know what you're up against. And because this is such a significant investment, it's worth your time to learn which options will work best to keep your basement maintained as dry, usable space.
