Why is My Basement Flooded?
There are a number of ways water can enter a basement, and it’s not always obvious what the culprit is. Some of the most common causes are:
- Sump pump failure
- Cracked foundation walls
- Broken drain tile system
- Damaged plumbing pipes
- Exterior drainage problems
- Broken sewer pipes
- Leaky crawlspace
- Leaky window wells

What Options do I have?

Keep Your Basement Dry and Foundation Stable with Our Drain Systems
Often, the best solution for keeping your basement dry and ensuring that your foundation remains intact is to keep the drain tile system around your home in good condition. At RC Waterproofing, our technicians specialize in performing comprehensive inspections to identify any problems and determine whether a drain tile replacement is the solution to keeping your basement dry.
Given the extreme fluctuation in temperatures and frequent heavy rains we encounter here in Southeast Michigan, drain tile replacement is crucial to keeping any foundation intact. Not only will a damaged or broken drain tile allow water to enter your basement, it can destabilize your entire foundation. If water is allowed to freeze inside cracks in the foundation or the ground around a property is consistently moist and unstable, not only will your basement water problem continue to get worse, it can lead to any number of more serious issues.
Interior Drainage Systems
Our Exterior Waterproofing Solutions Are Proven to Permanently Stop Water
Although it’s not the simplest solution, exterior waterproofing is the most effective way to stop water from entering your basement. RC Waterproofing offers permanent exterior applications that have proven to be effective for 40 years.
Our exterior waterproofing applications use a unique, non-bonded, self-sealing membrane. This membrane is used successfully in industrial and commercial applications and is also perfectly suited for almost all residential properties. It is permanent, does not break down, and bridges crack up to 1/4" wide.
We take great care to minimize the impact of exterior waterproofing on your home. We hand dig where needed and can use a small machine to take care of the rest. You can be confident that when you choose us to provide exterior waterproofing, the job will be completed in a timely manner, with minimal damage to landscaping, and removal of all resulting debris.
