Signs To Waterproof Your Basement 

Damp, Musty Odor

A musty smell in your basement is typically caused by mildew or mold.

Visible Mold

The most common causes of mold growing on walls are high humidity, condensation and water leaks, which are often hidden inside the wall.

Crack on Walls and/or floor

Most cracks occur gradually and may go unnoticed for many years until a leak is discovered.

Most common cause of water in your basement is from leaking wall cracks.


A crystalline deposit of salts often seen on the surface of concrete, brick, stucco or natural stone surfaces. It occurs when water leaves behind salt deposits and is present on or in the masonry surface. Will cause the wall to flake & peel away.

Bowed Walls

The most common cause is excess moisture in the area.  Basements with bowed block walls may indicate a large separation between two layers of the blocks where the bowing has occurred.

Visible water marks

on walls

Wetness seeping through means there is water behind the walls caused by hydrostatic pressure.


Can lead to mildew, mold.
