Wet Basements & Waterproofing Services That Help

Wet BasementBasement waterproofing is vital for taking care of wet basements and can also be beneficial to your home for a number of other reasons. Protecting the foundation of your house is one clear reason why you should waterproof the basement. When you have a leak and your basement is constantly subjected to water, this can lead to foundation damage and rot that can ultimately weaken the stability of your home if the problem gets worse- especially without an exterior waterproofing.

Basement waterproofing is also important to keep your family members and home safe and sound. A wet basement is definitely an appealing setting for all types of bugs, many of which could be damaging or dangerous if they start to attack the materials in your house or if they make their way from the basement into your living area.

Interior Basement Waterproofing

American Foundation and Basement Repair utilizes SafeBasements Waterproofing products with their interior basement waterproofing services. This waterproofing company has improved upon the well-known drain tile system, never reducing quality just improving the design with today's technologies. We're very pleased to offer basement waterproofing options which are revolutionary, effective, cost-effective, and make your basement safe and sound.

SafeDrain Waterproofing System


The SafeDrain system has a low profile wider design. This design allows for adequate floor thickness to be poured back over the SafeDrain once the installation is complete. The SafeDrain system’s wider design allows for adequate water flow while reducing hydrostatic pressure caused by poor soil conditions from when your home was originally constructed. SafeBasements Waterproofing systems are designed to work in conjunction with radon mitigation systems to make your basement as safe as possible.

SafeTrack Water Control Systems


SafeDrain and SafeTrack water control systems are specially-engineered to deal with basement wall water problems. As with all SafeBasements Waterproofing water control products, they've got our rubber seal which allows water to move into the system but decreases the amounts of harmful soil gasses (Radon) from getting into the living area of the house. As opposed to earlier waterproofing technologies, our waterproofing system will not call for any kind of significant excavating and there isn't any destruction done to the structural elements within your basement. The SafeTrack system is a great waterproofing solution for houses with a monolithic floor.

SafeBasements Complete Waterproofing System

Complete Waterproofing System

Most interior drainage systems have all evolved from the drain tile system. Unfortunately for the homeowner, most waterproofing contractors have gone to ease of installation rather than quality to the consumer. SafeBasements Waterproofing has improved on the tried and true drain tile system, never compromising quality, only improving the design with modern technology. AFBR provides basement waterproofing solutions that are innovative, effective, and make your basement safe. Please click the image to the right, to see a demonstration video of the SafeBasements waterproofing system in action.

Sump Pumps

SafeBasements utilizes robust, dependable sump pumps in all of our basement and crawl space system installations. Our pumps utilize either cast iron or stainless steel construction (with respect to the type of pump chosen), and are continuous duty rated for worry free functionality.

Basement Waterproofing Company

Regardless of what approach to basement waterproofing you decide on, you'll need a reputable basement waterproofing company to offer you waterproofing services, such as American Foundation & Basement Repair. Choose a company which has experience doing various different kinds of waterproofing so you will have the most number of options available to you.
