    It can be a difficult experience to determine which basement waterproofing contractor to use in York, PA. York is a mix of home types, slopes, and weather conditions. This all affects how much basement and crawlspace waterproofing is needed. Affordability is also a concern, as is the necessity of finding a company with the years of experience and licensing needed to make the waterproofing last as long as possible. 

    A diligent company will have several great reviews and be listed on sites that promote only the best basement and crawlspace waterproofing companies. Basement Gurus of York, PA, is a local company that is established and committed to the finest in customer service. This company, with decades of experience and the licensing and training needed, services the York, PA, area with only the newest technologies available and continues the training of all its technicians. Your home being dry and safe is as important to them as if this were their own home. Good companies like Basement Gurus are sought by contractor listing sites such as Angie’s List, Craft Jack, Porch, and Thumbtack.

    Award systems are in place on sites that cater to consumers, and only the “best of the best” make it to the top 4 percent that are even accepted on these sites. After consumers choose a company from such sites listed above, reviews on courtesy, promptness, and, of course, affordability are left, so this attests to the fact that many great companies are found this way. Basement Gurus is proud to be listed on all these sites and especially proud of their five-star Google reviews. 

    How do you find a good basement and crawlspace waterproofing company near me? 

    While a good search of Google or visiting targeted sites, such as those listed above, can assist, there is nothing that compares to a reference from friends and neighbors in your vicinity. Waterproofing systems used for a basement or crawlspace “near me” are in tune with most of the neighboring homes as these would most likely share the same slope, drainage problems, foundation problems, or even flooding and continued dampness problems. 

    Many homeowners in a similar area will also have finished basements, which, of course, need the utmost protection. Basement finishing is a proud endeavor, and your home deserves the finest protection against any water, dampness, or flooding once you have spent the money on finishing a basement. York, PA, does have its share of finished basements that are used for extra family rooms or even as rentals. A crawlspace itself that is leaky needs attention, as does the entire basement. Although most individuals do tend to ignore crawlspaces, homes become musty, and air quality diminishes when they become prone to mold and mildew through dampness. 

    Before Basement Finishing Starts, Waterproofing is Needed

    “Jumping the gun” and plowing ahead with a finished basement before waterproofing is just playing “Russian Roulette” with your home value and, of course, the finished basement. If you are taking the time and money to renovate a basement or have already renovated one, all cracks and crevices need to be sealed, and outside foundational drainage issues need to be addressed. We also do foundation repairs.

    Dampness creeps in with only a bit of seepage. Crawlspaces are often overlooked as a source of problematic humidity and all types of fungus, mold, and mildew. Smelling “musty” is the first sign of a water seepage problem in either a basement or crawlspace. Buckled walls or floors, however, indicate a much more serious problem, so addressing possible problems through a free evaluation by Basement Gurus should be done regularly. The evaluations are free, and if any problems are found, financing options exist for most types of budgets. Basement Gurus will never push unnecessary services on homeowners and has been an honest company servicing York, PA, for three decades. 

    Sump Pumps—Keeping Basements Dry After Waterproofing

    Sump Pumps have a dire-sounding name but are actually little miracle machines. Alone with dehumidifiers, these keep lower levels like basements and crawlspaces moisture-free by drawing the water automatically out of a basement when it reaches a certain level. A basin is present to which the water is drawn. A switch sends a signal to the sump pump. These should be included in any waterproofing plan for a basement, as they are relatively inexpensive and worth the money. 

    There are two types: Submersible, which are completely submerged, and Pedestal, which are off-ground and come into play when the water reaches the point where the pump switches on. 

    In excessive water seepage, there is often a need for a backup sump pump. Batteries are needed for every sump pump, and a battery backup system might also be needed. Only true professionals like Basement Gurus who stand by their work 100 percent should be consulted to ensure the perfect water removal/water deterrent system is installed.

    Crawlspace Repair and Sealing Should Not be Overlooked

    Crawlspaces, especially older ones, can become damaged, and since these are usually not the first thing homeowners think of, a lot of humidity and water can creep into a basement through them. After repair, a Dehumidifier will probably be recommended in the basement to keep both the basement and any crawlspaces dry and completely moisture-free. Rotted wood becomes a problem in crawlspaces as they age, and this leads to cracks or even total collapse of a crawlspace. Encapsulation of all crawlspaces will ensure that these remain dry for years, if not decades. 

    Basement Finishing and Remodeling Need the Ultimate Protection 

    A flooded basement is always disastrous, especially if a lot of time and expense goes into making a living space in the basement level of your home. Finished or not, unexpected water from weather or flooding does reap dire consequences on any home. If the worst happens and a basement experiences flooding, then there is no reason to panic. Basement Gurus, with decades of quality workmanship and customer service behind them, are there for any and all emergencies.
