For years, Mid America Piering has been providing St. Louis homeowners and businesses with quality waterproofing services. Our team is ready and able to help you fix all of your basement waterproofing issues which can be caused from one or more of the following:
One of the most common causes of a wet basement is hydrostatic (water) pressure. This is the pressure that is exerted on foundational walls, footings, and basement floors by outside moisture. Some of the things that can cause this are higher water tables, poor soil percolation, and/or poorly designed drainage systems that are adjacent to the structure.
Water can be accumulated underground due to rain and melting snow, this water causes a great amount of pressure to be exerted on foundational walls and floors. Moisture can cause extensive damage to your home causing issues such as wood rot that can compromise your support beams and floor joists. Most foundation and floor cracks are a direct result of hydrostatic pressure.
Inteiror Vs. Exterior Waterproofing
Basement and crawl space waterproofing issues can be solved in a number of ways. These can include interior methods and exteiror methods. Our team of experts at Mid America Piering can help you determine which solution will work best for your issues depending on the cause and source of the leaks.
Interior Waterproofing Solutions
When it comes to permanently protecting your home and basement from water leaks our interior soluitons are one of the best choices. Our team can install an interior drain tile system to collect water before it enters your basements and to keep it out of your basement by removing it with a sump pump. In other scenarios like window well leaks and wall cracks we may recomend other options such as window well drains and polyurethane injection to seal cracks.

Exterior Waterproofing & Yard Drainage
Poor yard drainage is the number one cause of waterproofing issues for homes in the St. Louis area. When water is not able to drain from your yard or is pooling next to your foundation it saturates the soil around your home. This can lead to an excess amount of pressure pushing on your foundation walls causing wall cracks and causing water to enter your basement. Our team can help you with yard drainage to help keep water from damaging your home and foundation.
