Welcome to our site, the first step in drying up your basement or crawl space. Our service is based on the common sense approach of managing surface water around your home. No one has  more  skill or experience in finding and correcting common, overlooked, defects at a home’s exterior.

I have advised homeowners and Real Estate Professionals since the mid 1980s on fixing wet basement and crawl space defects. I wrote a book on it: 5 Steps to a Dry Basement or Crawl Space. I never recommend “aftermarket” waterproofing systems. In fact, I’ve advised against them for years, while recommending their removal in homes of clients.

 

These systems, installed on the inside of basements, neglect to address the source of the problem. Instead, they encourage water to come through the newly drilled holes they create in your walls, and the new trenches they cut into your basement floor. What can happen is erosion of earth beneath the foundation, proliferation of mold inside the home, and deterioration of foundation walls. These types of systems don’t even keep the basement dry, cost thousands of dollars, and create a mess and lots of stress. I’ve heard all of the stories when it comes to these types of waterproofing companies: scare tactics, phony warranties, lack of credentials. You cannot get objective  advice from a business trying to  sell you their product. Why do homeowners continue to purchase these products? Two reasons: they don’t no where else to turn; some people feel that if they throw a lot of money at a problem it’s sure to get fixed. Nothing is further from the truth.

 

Now you have somewhere else to turn. WET BASEMENT CONSULTANTS has no hidden agenda and no conflict of interest. We offer plain talk, honest advice, objective consultation.

 

Although our service has been around for years, under the radar, this site is new. Stay tuned for updates.

  • Invaluable to me and to my house!

    Your thorough, expert and detailed report has been invaluable to me and to my house!  It provided me with the necessary information to eliminate the problem of water entering my basement from the outside by redirecting gutters and downspouts and replacing the slope of the concrete and brick entrance to the house so that rainwater and snow meltage would run in the opposite direction from the house.

     

    My basement has been dry for the past year despite the enormous amount of melting snow from last winter. It was my lucky day when I read about you in the Free Press.
