Does Your Basement Need Waterproofing? Tyrone, GA
A residential suburbian house.

Water collecting around the foundations of your property can become an expensive problem. Many foundations and basement walls are made of concrete which, although sturdy, is naturally porous. Over time, moisture can permeate your basement wall, leading to a host of problems.

Wooden elements of your structure, such as beams and joists, will rot away. Soil surrounding the foundations of your property may erode, meaning less structural support for your walls. Waterlogged soil will naturally expand in volume, putting increased pressure on your basement walls and causing them to crack.

Signs Your Basement Is Water Damaged

There are several key indicators that moisture has permeated the walls of your basement. If you notice any of these, you should take action immediately before the problem worsens.

You might first notice a damp, musty smell in your basement before any visible signs become apparent. Noticeable water marks may appear on your inner basement wall following heavy rainfall. This means water has entered over the foundations. If your concrete walls are curving or bulging inward, this indicates the structure is under immense pressure. Left unchecked, bowed walls will produce horizontal cracks that allow more water to enter your property.

Moisture in your basement might make itself known by the appearance of efflorescence on your walls. As concrete walls absorb water, minerals are pushed out and form a chalky white substance. The presence of efflorescence indicates a crack or opening in the affected wall. Mold represents a significant concern, both for your health and the structural integrity of your basement. Be alert for the appearance of green, black or white mold spots.

Small cracks in walls or flooring indicate a buildup of pressure from the surrounding soil. These cracks are fairly easy to repair but should not be ignored, as they will get worse over time. Large, gaping cracks or raised areas of ground may indicate serious foundation problems or flooring issues.

Alex C.

Lanier Yardscapes came out to my property swiftly upon inquiry to give an estimate for our outdoor lighting project. I had several quotes, but it was the customer service and attention to detail that made our choice to go with this company. Communication process was smooth and during installation they took care to treat our home with respect. I would highly recommend this team in my own personal future projects or any interested in making their outdoor space enjoyable.

Jason R.

Alex and his entire Team were amazing! They were concerned with every detail and took the time to get everything just right, not stopping until we were completely satisfied. We highly recommend them.

Barbara F.

Alex and his crew do great work! They are all very nice guys, respectful and courteous as they work. The attention to detail is exemplary, and the whole crew take pride in the job they do, something that’s hard to find these days. They work as a team, and when Alex is on site, he works just as hard as everyone else. Very pleased with my landscaping, they are professionals.

Nikole L.

Lanier Landscapes did an excellent job! Ron and his crew worked hard and made sure that everything was done to our specifications. The crew was also very knowledgeable and cleaned up after themselves. When we learned that our sprinkler system needed an overhaul, they informed us ahead of time what kind of pricing we were looking at. Easy to work with! Ron was a hoot!

Bill M.

Alex Lanier and his crew did a wonderful job with a new stone patio for my back yard including some Landscaping and mulch! My wife is overjoyed. Not only did they do a great job but when I wanted a minor adjustment they came back out and did it for me for no charge. He also came in under budget for the mulch and did a Super job! It is a shame you only get 5 stars they deserve a 6 star rating. I will defiantly use them again and would highly recommend them to anyone else. Just know that because they are so good you need to book them well in advance.

Charles H.

Fantastic experience! Very professional in all phases of grading, irrigation preparation and sod installation. All of the crew were as nice as could be. We had some time constraints and Alex and his men handled them without hesitation. Stellar outfit!
