We hired SAS Home Services to waterproof our basement back in 2018. Great price and they were in and out in 2 days. The basement has been sealed tight ever since! We recently called them again when our sump pump went out and Dean rearranged his schedule so he could come out the same day. The backup system SAS had originally installed worked perfectly so our basement was still dry and the new sump pump was installed in no time. Excellent workmanship, as well as follow up service. We will use them again for any additional work we need and highly recommend SAS Home Services for your home needs as well. Love these guys!
"I had called SAS Services in the middle of the night when I realized my basement had flooded. I received a call back at about 7:30 the next morning from SAS and they had someone at my home before 10am that same day. I was really happy with the response time and friendly service. They were able to fix my sump pump and drain the remainder of the water. Very impressed!"
"I just had SAS Services finish sealing four leaks in my basement. I called them as soon as I noticed the leaks from the rain over the weekend. I had someone come and estimate the repairs and actually had the leaks fixed the following day. Great people, great company."
Protecting your basement from water and flooding involves several strategies: Proper Landscaping: Ensure your yard slopes away from your home. This directs water away from your foundation. Planting certain types of vegetation can also help absorb excess water. Gutters and Downspouts: Keep your gutters clean and ensure they're directing water at least three feet away from your foundation. Consider installing gutter guards to prevent clogging. Sump Pump Installation: A sump pump can be a valuable investment. It pumps out water that accumulates in the sump basin, usually located in the basement's lowest point. Regular maintenance is essential to ensure it's working correctly. Foundation Cracks Repair: Inspect your basement regularly for cracks in the foundation. Small cracks can be sealed using epoxy or other sealants, but larger cracks might require professional attention. Window Well Covers: If your basement has windows, install window well covers. These prevent water from accumulating in the window wells and seeping into your basement. Interior and Exterior Waterproofing: Waterproofing can range from applying sealant on your basement walls to more complex exterior waterproofing, which may involve excavating around your home to install drainage systems. Backwater Valves: Install a backwater valve on your sewer line to prevent sewage from backing up into your basement during heavy rains. Inspect and Repair Leaks Promptly: Regularly check for leaks in your basement and repair them promptly to prevent minor issues from turning into major flooding problems. Water Alarms and Detectors: Installing water alarms can alert you early if there's unwanted water in your basement, giving you more time to take action. Regular Maintenance: Regularly inspect and maintain your home’s drainage systems, including sump pumps, gutters, and downspouts, to ensure they are functioning correctly. By combining these measures, you can significantly reduce the risk of water damage and flooding in your basement.
