Basement Waterproofing You Can Trust
At Fenwick, we pride ourselves on detailed customer service and that starts with interviewing and truly listening to your concerns. Many of our customers come to us knowing that they should get their basement or crawl space waterproofed, but are wary because of the numerous unreliable waterproofing companies they have to choose from and whether or not they have the experience and expertise to solve their water problems.
We guarantee this will not happen if you waterproof your basement crawl space or exterior foundation with us and here’s why.
We provide you with a 25-year warranty to give you the peace of mind you deserve. If you are not happy with what we have done, or if there are water issues are still occurring, we will come back out and correct or fix it at no cost to you, guaranteed. Our free initial consultation allows you to talk with us and decide if we are a right fit, without any risk. And unlike every other waterproofing contractor, we have a program to maintain and inspect your waterproofing system annually.
Since deciding on a home improvement contractor is so important, we want to ensure that you get the best value for your money and earn your trust. We don’t ask for any payment until we’ve agreed on the plan. After we have a plan in place, it is 10% upfront, with a series of progress payments throughout the project.
We've partnered with GreenSky to provide financing solutions to our customers. GreenSky has helped many of our customers with home improvement loans and offers flexible terms and conditions to suit your needs.
Why Foundation Waterproofing is Important
There can also be clear symptoms, however, that you need waterproofing in your basement or crawl space. These can include water leaking or seeping into your basement or crawl space, wet walls, wood decay, damp air, musty odors, mold, or insects. These are obvious health and safety issues that you don’t want in your home.
Leaving these problems unsolved could leave your home vulnerable to mold growth or even foundation and structure damage. Basements and crawl spaces that are not waterproofed can collect moisture, which can damage building materials. The foundation can deteriorate, crack, crumble, or bow from water damage.
If you are living in a new or older home and are planning to finish your basement, now is a perfect time to have your basement waterproofed or have any existing system inspected for proper function. Protect your future building materials such as drywall and wood trim, that are vulnerable to water damage and mold growth, before it’s too late.
A properly designed waterproofing system along with moisture controls can give you more livable space, relieve the health effects from damp building syndrome and provide peace of mind.
Other benefits may include reducing energy costs for your property. During waterproofing that includes moisture controls, we can seal wall and floors, regulate air and lock out water vapor that can otherwise lead to energy loss. This means that your air conditioning will not be working as hard to keep heat and humidity down in the summer months, and your heating systems will not have to deal with cold damp air in colder months.
What to Expect from Fenwick Waterproofing
Next, we will find a location for the sump pump and basin and where it will discharge to. These interior perimeter drains will lead outside to an exterior drain, that will extend about 10-20 feet away from the property. This helps to minimize the water leaving your basement or crawl space does not cycle back in. Finally, we will install drain matting and plastic in the trench and repour concrete where the excavation took place, so that your basement will look the same as it did before.
After installation, we test what we have installed to ensure proper function, but we also offer a backup pump system just in case of power failure. Backup systems come highly recommended by any manufacturer and choosing the right backup system is critical. We offer systems that tie into your wifi or smart phone so that you will be notified on your phone or computer if it is malfunctioning.
The 5-step Fenwick Waterproofing Process
1. The Initial Consultation
2. The Site Visit
3. The Plan
Additionally, we will offer a variety of plans depending on your budget and what is best for your property, the type of space we are dealing with, and your budget. This step of the process also includes getting a permit for the work, which we will handle and coordinate for you. And remember after we have a plan and proper paperwork in place, it is only 10% upfront, with a series of progress payments throughout the project. We want to keep this process as low risk as possible for you, in order to ensure that you are happy with the results and gain our confidence.
We are not the type of company to complete our service and never contact you again. We need the peace of mind to make sure the work completed for functions properly and will stand the test of time according to our warranty. Our success is your success. And even after ensuring operational success, we like to conduct regularly scheduled maintenance visits to ensure that our waterproofing work lasts for years and years to come. Additionally, we offer a 25-year warranty, which means that we can guarantee you a waterproof basement for at least 25 years to come.
The ‘SumpGuard’ Program
For example, if you have a 3-month dry spell, it is important to ensure that your pumps are ready to go. During our annual and bi-annual services, we test the pump, back flow, float and the GFCI receptacle they’re plugged into in order to make sure that both are working properly. We also clean out the sump basin of any debris and then we test the system including any backup systems. And if you choose our flushing service (recommended on heavily silted soils), we can do that too.
