Basement Waterproofing: the Worry-proof Way!

Our work shines brightest when it’s raining hard.

A wet basement is something you need to address immediately. But you don’t want to make a short-sighted decision simply to dry it out as fast as possible with a temporary or low-volume solution. You want the problem to be solved once and for all—no matter how severe future rains may be.

  • Since 1958, we’ve waterproofed hundreds of thousands of basements. These homes are still experiencing dry basements!
  • Your warranty will cover the life-of-the-structure. Your home is likely to outlive most contractors, but our 65-plus year legacy proves we’re not going anywhere.
  • If we can’t fix your water issue, you won’t pay a dime—that’s our Money-Back Guarantee!
  • We’ve maintained an A+ BBB Rating for decades.
  • Our Channel ’58 and Channel ’58 HD (heavy duty) offer you a choice for the best drainage system for your home.

If you’re looking for a basement waterproofing system that handles the most water, you can count on ’58 for a far more valuable service.

We’ve all seen basements like this. Water stains and dampness along the edge of the wall and floor. Paint peeling from the water-stained wall. White, powdery efflorescence on the concrete. We’ve all smelled the dank, musty smell of mold. Removing the water and moisture that has been sitting against the foundation is the solution.

Crawlspace Encapsulation: We Began Crawling Under Houses in 1958

We get down and dirty to make your crawlspace clean and dry.

A typical crawlspace has a dirt floor or a thin layer of concrete poured over the dirt. And most of the time that leads to problems that can cause wood rot, create in-home allergies or other health concerns, and make your home far less energy efficient. It also makes the space unusable for storing anything you value.

The culprit, of course, is moisture from the surrounding soil seeping in through the floor, walls and vents. The answer is ‘58 Foundations & Waterproofing, the most experienced experts in crawlspace encapsulation.

With Class-A fire-rated material, mold prevention, and an actual 20-mil vapor barrier, our solution is also focused on your safety and your health.

This crawlspace had a dirt floor. Now it’s encapsulated with a 20-mil thick, bright-white liner, sealed vents, and our HumidiGuard air-filtering dehumidifier suspended from the joists. This crawlspace is cleaner, drier and healthier—all courtesy of the fantastic ’58 Foundations & Waterproofing crew who climbed in here on their hands and knees to transform this crawlspace!

Foundation Repair: the Longest-Lasting Solutions and Deepest Industry Knowledge

No company’s more qualified to preserve the structural integrity of your home.

The foundation of your house or commercial property was made to keep the building level and prevent moisture from getting in. However, over time, even well-made foundations can be compromised, which threatens the structure’s integrity and longevity.

What happens is the soil beneath your foundation shifts or becomes more compacted. Tell-tale signs of foundation issues include:

  • Cracks in the foundation’s concrete walls and floors.
  • Cracks in drywall or plaster upstairs.
  • Upstairs windows and doors that no longer close properly.
  • Foundation walls that are bowing, shearing or leaning.

These problems must be assessed and addressed—by professionals—before they get more severe and expensive to fix. Of course, you’ll have options, but if you’re looking for the most experienced, professional, straight-shooting name in foundation repair, your search is over.

Mold Mitigation: the Healthiest Approach with Less Chemicals and More Care

We offer the healthiest approach to a very unhealthy problem.

Mold stinks, literally. It creates a musty odor. And worse yet, it creates allergens and irritants that can cause numerous health problems.

So what creates mold? Moisture. Mold problems often occur in basements and crawlspaces where moisture and humidity levels are generally higher than in other parts of your home or building. Vulnerable materials include wood, carpeting, paper, leather, and fabric with natural fibers—the things that make up much of your home and belongings.

There are numerous reasons to call on ’58 Foundations rather than the many companies that offer mold removal services. Perhaps the two most important reasons are:

Mold lives here.  Mold has taken hold on the joists and flooring system in this crawlspace. Besides mold, spiders and all sorts of critters also like damp spaces to thrive in. Right above those boards—and the space between them—is the first floor!
